Good Sunday morning....after an afternoon of thunder and lightning...and barely any rain....we woke up to a gorgeous day here in southeastern Michigan.  My good pal, Earlene, said her flower gardens were completely destroyed from the harsh rain and hail...she's lives about 60 miles west of me and we didn't get much at all.

A few pictures this morning...I've been putzing in my kitchen..finally found a new console type table for my kitchen and that darn dark wall (still haven't painted it).   I managed to squeeze in a little stitching and hooking this week.  So it's been fairly productive.

"REAL COMFORT" by Modernfolk Embroidery...a quote from Jane Austen.  I love this sampler, but it has proven to be a bit tedious....time to put it away for a's much more stitching that I initially thought...don't mind the wrinkles...

This little hooked design will be attached to a purse....after I figure out how to do was nice to get back to hooking after a long hiatus....I couldn't even find my hook!

Now for the "feast de la resistance" good pals from the Holly Hookers...this is Bonnie...Bonnie designs her own rugs...Bonnie color plans her own rugs...Bonnie hooks her own rugs in record time.....Bonnie is amazing!

I love the colors and the bead work design...

This is Sue Mcfall's FFO.....Sue is an amazing wool applique artiste!  She never starts one project until she finishes one....This is a Maggie B design...

And last....Alexandra....Alexandra my 11th grandchild who is so creative....she designed her own purse.  I'm so sad she lives in South Carolina....I would have her hooking and stitching with me all the time...her other career is fighting crime in the midst of her stuffed animals & action figures...she also has quite the imagination!

Have a wonderful Sunday....and a wonderful week...thank you for taking time to read my blog!
