The future belongs to those who believe
in the beauty of their dreams.
My home has lovely fragrances through out the rooms at present, all week I have been picking bunches of Daphne burkwoodii, this is my favourite Daphne and I have two large bushes that allow me to pick many bunches to share with friends giving me great pleasure. And I have a large bunch on the table near my chair sharing its sweet scent with me as I stitch.
I have also picked for myself a bunch of lilac this year it has been badly beaten by the heavy winds and rain of the past week but that has not taken its sweet fragrance
This time of the year has so many rewards and I am also enjoying a vase of Lily of the valley that I picked yesterday, as its fragrance is much softer I have put it in my bedroom and what a delight to enjoy when I enter the room.
This weekend is International Hermit and Stitch Weekend and my plans are to finish the last of the four Latvian coasters I have been stitching, mount a piece of embroidery for myself...... it has been waiting for quite a while and to do some more stitching on Strawberries so faire, that's after I have done some frogging on that piece, it is so maddening to find one is one stitch out!!!!!
Progress report at the end of the weekend. happy stitching to all other Hermits for the weekend.
