Shirley Poppies

Hi friends! Today is the day to announce the winner for the Nora Corbett pattern Gathering Eggs.
 
JUNE! Your name was drawn.😁 I will get this pattern off to the Post Office for you my friend. Enjoy stitching this young girl!
I finished reading In the Steps of Jane Austen by Anne-Marie Edwards. I found this book at my library when our library had a display of Jane Austen books recently. This was interesting, but not captivating. The few pictures included are in black and white.
This detailed and engaging account of Austen's life and work is arranged as a series of walking tours through the towns and countryside she knew and loved—the settings for her novels. This book introduces the people she met on her journeys and explores the country houses, churches, great estates, and elegant cities she knew, which have changed surprisingly little in the course of two centuries.
Sorry for the lack of cross stitch pictures. My week has been hectic. I have been stitching, but I have not taken pictures. I will share updates next week.

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your friendship. I hope you have a very nice weekend my friends!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Your poppies are just so pretty! It is too hot and miserable here right now to grow anything. Even my tomato plant is looking sickly. LOL

Have an amazing weekend, dear Vickie.
