Busy and a finish

Hey everybody! How are you all doing? We have been busy getting ready for Madeleine's Confirmation. There will be 20 young people getting confirmed on Sunday in our Lutheran Church. She had her questioning last night. The pastor asked all of them 200 questions regarding the faith, and they all did very well. Confirmation occurs on Sunday at 10:30. We will have family there and over afterwards. This is where the busyness comes in. Yes, the children and I have been crawling over the lawns, front and back, pulling dandelion weeds. Brian says this is completely unnecessary. Well, I like a clean, neat appearance! I have planted some too.


I think you can tell I chose this elephant ear plant because the leaves look like big pink hearts.♥


So this is our fence along the driveway. We put up trellises every year. I planted sweet pea vines a week ago. They have popped up and started. I filled the baskets with pink and purple flowers.plants and vines.


So the two on the outsides are light pink, the one in the center has dark pink geraniums. I prefer the light pink ones, but like them all. ♥

And finally, I did finish up that adorable little Bent Creek bunny from Sally.

Now I am think, think, thinking on how to finish him off. I would like to say I am on to my next stitch, I cannot. I have to give both dogs baths and haircuts. Neat appearances remember. :)

reading and cleaning up,
Vickie

I love the hanging baskets up your driveway, Vickie. I'll bet they are really even more beautiful when they fill in a bit and start hanging down.

The bunny is adorable--absolutely one of my favorite Bent Creek pieces! I just love his little lost expression :)

Oh my goodness! I love the trellises & baskets of flowers you hung along the drive way. Looks Beautiful. Very cute bunny you stitched. I like the geraniums because they are so very hardy and last forever & multiply:)) Yes we have pink ones.
