Hand stitchin' for Olympics watchin'...

Recliner's set...hand quilting project at the ready---bring on the Olympics!! Started while watching the opening ceremonies last night. I really enjoyed it! And now Queen Elizabeth is a Bond girl! Pretty impressive for the 86 year old monarch. ( i love her!)
Not much other sewing going on. But the garden flowers are happy-happy after some much needed rain.


The phlox is nice this year. Hasn't been damp enough for the mildew they sometimes get. Hoping the varigated variety above spreads a bit more next year.
I grow snapdragons every year in memory of my Mom. And i have cut flowers all summer. And who doesn't love marigolds?? Reliable always.

Have a great weekend! Get outside when ya can....and watch the Olympics when you're in! GO USA!

Happy stitching on your LOVE quilt!
I could live with the current weather all year round: no too hot, not too cold and evening showers...
