sewing...

I have been sewing every day, making cards and journal pages. I also finally planted some flowers in the backyard. They make me happier for sure.
 After I am done posting, I am going back to sew. Kinda proud of myself doing it every day again. Sometimes I have to really work to get going, but then it kicks in and I do well. Just wanted to show a few pictures....
 June wreath with vintage chenille bedspread roses......


The little circles in the center say "happy Summer."

 I also made a June table topper....I pulled some red from the strawberry fabric that covers the can and then used the chenille to make a crazy topper.


I am using it on a patio table. It is nice and cheerful.

 I love container planting but I sure miss having room for a garden!


I also have my April journal page finished...I did it camping and I think the colors around me were the inspiration.
I hope you are having a great Sunday. xoxooxmelinda

It does the mind wonders to be creative, doesn't it? Container gardening is a great way when you lack the space. They can be so productive.
