“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so,I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.” John 14:1-4

Hi friends! I want to show you the bookmark I made for Our friend June's birthday. She has opened her gift, so it is safe now. :)
June loves flowers and bunnies and of course butterflies!  I had this sweet freebie printed out since Spring of 2013. And I am glad I did! I can no longer find it for you. This is just a small portion of the pretty pattern. I had printed this pattern with June in mind from the start! ;)
Happy Birthday dear June!
Two varieties of lavender bearded irises. The ones on the right smell of grape!
Chris, these are the geraniums you gave me. They have a pinkish hue after all! ;)
We have been getting lots and lots of rain here. When it finally dries up, I will get back out in the garden to pull the fresh  weeds. I have the same problem Marly does. When the barometric pressure falls, my pain goes up. It is best to wait inside til these thunder storms pass. So I have been stitching. I will be back soon with a pretty FINISH! It turned out great and I love it! I hope you will too. :)

Have a super week my friends!

Stitching and praying,
My little garden helper on a hot afternoon.

A lovely gift for June, such a cute little bunny with the butterfly. I hope your pain levels are reducing and I'm sorry you got with the spattering fat - not nice at all - take care that the blisters don't infect.

Your garden is amazing, Vickie, and gives me a lot of inspiration...though I hope your pain subsides soon.

Take it easy and rest, and have a great week!

o no, that's a daffodil! I will be scouring the Internet to find that pattern now, what have you done. :))) It looks so lovely, I'm sure June loved it!

Those look like Martha Washington geraniums! I have one in that color, as well as a white with pink centers. They're (all) lovely flowers.
