Another Finish... and my Garden


Ahhh boy this feels good to get things accomplished! Last week in the mail I received Ruth's Teresa Wentzler Round Robin. As I mentioned yesterday, I sat down and figured out what I wanted to stitch also to make sure I had all the supplies on hand. Which I did.

For this TWRR (the bottom band is mine) I stitched the inner dragon scene border from TW's "The Fortunate Traveller". Ruth had two skeins of overdyed silk that if we wanted to we could incorporate. Which I did. The gold outer border on my band is a Gumnuts silk. The lazy daisy leaves are a Glorianna silk (my favorite brand!). Anyhow I'm quite happy with how it turned out and happy to have one goal for June completed!

Tomorrow I'll be pulling Montreal Sampler back out... finally!

Today after work I finally got out and took pictures of some of my flowers in bloom in my gardens. Including my first Clematis which is just spectacular! I've missed a number of my irises as it has rained a lot here over the last week. Some of my irises will need splitting come August.

What a cool TW RR! Nice job, I love the band you selected!

I adore your garden pics! Thanks! I have those same black columbines in my garden. Grew them from seed on my kitchen windowsill in 2001, so am kind of proud of them... so happy to see them in your garden too :-)

Love the garden pictures!! That clematis is beautiful. Do you know the name of it?? I recently started to grow them, too, and so far I have three of them (Candida, Henryi and Artic Queen). They're all white, so I'm due for one with great colors like yours. : )
