Nice to be back.

Well, I am back to stitching and have a piece to show you. I have been waiting for my hummingbirds to return from down south and have only seen one so far so I decided to stitch one and that way I can look at it. I do like the way it turned out.
I decided to add some back stitching around the front of the body and the wings to give the hummy more detail. I do like the way it turned out.

 Four very busy men.
We needed a new roof on the garage and these guys did it in one day, they showed up at 8 a.m. and where finished by 5 p.m. They even took away the tiles and nails from the roof. They worked hard all day and they worked together and it was fun to watch them.

I have had a new bird visiting my flower box feeder. She or he flew to the maple tree and I managed get this picture. Looks like we are watching each other. Funny bird. My purple tulips are blooming.

 This is what I got from the kids for Mother's Day this year.
 We have been busy cleaning the canes from in front of the house and Dave has made me a front flower garden.  I planted lily of the valley under the maple tree and this year I have some flowers on them. They are spreading and that's great.

 This is where my cats are resting and I plan to plant some flowers for them, They will never be forgotten.
 I had a couple of potato's that sprouted eyes so I planted them. Growing nicely.
Hope everyone has a great day. Until next time take care hugs to all. xxx
