I sewed up the hole, stitched on some doilies and voila! I didn't care for it with the two bottom doilies added but The Vegan Princess liked it so I left them there.

I am taking part in a Scissor Fob Swap on EAC Virtual Threads and this arrived in the mail from Betty this week. Please be sure to click on it to see it closer - it is really lovely and an original design from Betty. I love it! Thanks Betty!
And look, I had a little pair of mauve embroidery scissors already - don't they make the perfect pair?!

So, thrifty as I am, I picked up a small bag of cotton yarn at the thrift store for fifty cents and managed to get four out of it. 12-1/2 cents each! Can't beat that price.

"After"Gardening and yard work have been taking up a lot of my time this summer. This is my little flower bed out in the yard. It was designed to keep anyone from running over our well head which is just behind the bird bath in the photo.
I posted a photo about a month ago and this is what it looked like then. After working away from home for numerous summers, weeds and grass had completely taken over and a lot of my perennials were lost. With some work and the addition of annuals and a few new perennials, it is showing great improvement. Unfortunately the weeds are rampant still and I haven't been able to keep up with them. Weeding not likely to happen this week either since I have a vicious summer head-cold and the temperatures are 30-plus Celcius all week.
Here's another gardening photo for you. I was pretty sceptical of the upside down tomato planters but decided to try it this year. This one is a grape tomato and is hanging on my porch. I have to say I am impressed with this method and will be doing more of these next year! Lots of little tomatoes but none ripe yet - still too early for us here.

I belong to EAC Virtual Threads, the new online chapter of The Embroiderers' Association of Canada, and one of the activities we have is a Secret Stitcher Exchange. Everyone who was interested signed up to send monthly cards or packages along with something a little special for birthdays and Christmas. The names were switched out and no one knows who has their name but every month they get little surprises in the mail. It has turned out to be great fun! I just received a birthday gift from my Secret Stitcher and just had to share! My two favourite flowers are pansies and sweet peas so this was perfect! Isn't the pincushion sweet!?
