As the saying goes, it never rains but it pours... so not only did our good spell of sunny weather break today with lots of rain, here I am posting twice in two days!
But as it was just a rainy day we stayed home and I stitched on my latest wool applique pattern I got from Tanya at Friendship Crossing and her Etsy My Lil' Craft Barn.
It is coming along nicely
A close up of the sunflower~ so bright and cheery on this wet day and I'm reminded of a verse in Ecclesiastes 11 v7, ' A pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun.'
So I snapped a few pics of sunflowers shining their light around my home~
in a basket hanging from a shelf,
I made these sunflowers from a tutorial by Char Sethman on her blog A Pickled Pepper Patch
And Primitive Betty's wonderful talent and pattern that she shares in this cross stitch pattern~
And for the BEST ever pics of sunflowers, I love visiting with Farm Girl Kim at My Field of Dreams - she loves the sun!!lol! Especially in August! Visit her here!
Hope this brightens your day - even if you are scorched where you are!
