Oh glorious summer

We are having a glorious hot summer, lazy sun soaked days - weekends just don't last long enough.....sigh!  We have a multitude of hollyhocks in our garden, providing me with hours of fun just trying to capture that perfect picture of a bumble bee in flight. I have come close but not perfect so I will keep trying.

 Lately I have been absolutely hooked on peyote stitch, I am trying to perfect following a graph pattern, as well as creating my own patterns. I may have mentioned that turquoise is one of my favorite colors and lately gold has moved to the top of my list as well. I love this combination of color and it suits this design so well.
I have received lots of compliments on this set....hard to keep out of my daughters' reach!


  1. That first picture of the bumblebee all covered in pollen is amazing.
    That turquoise and gold set is stunning. Love the gold leaves, I bet they have marvelous motion. Turquoise is one of those colors that I think looks marvelous on everyone.

  2. The hollyhocks are beautiful, and your photos of the bumbles are very cool. But that peyote set? Holy cow, that's a stunner!!
