My cross stitch group decided to start an SAL....not like I don't have enough projects going now! LOL We're doing Circle of Friends by Mirabilia. It's a sweet piece and just right for our group, since we're all such good friends :) We're doing 20x20 sections each week. So, I should be just about right for this week. I'm stitching it on 28 ct linen and the color is star sapphire. It's a very pale greenish/grayish/blue colored fabric. Of course, you can't tell in the picture below...LOL

I also did some gardening last week. I had well established rosebushes and hibuscus that I'd planted when I first moved into my house over two years ago. But the harsh winter we had did them in. Or so I thought. I just yanked everything out except for one rosebush. It wasn't till everything was pulled out and in the trash that my mom decides to mention that maybe I should've waited to see if they would've come back :( Anyways I bought more rosebushes and hibuscus. I find those the easiest to grow and take care of....just water and go! LOL

I did prune this one though. It was wild and out of control!!!

Cosmos...can't wait to see what these do!!!!


I do need to buy one more rosebush and a couple more hibuscus to even the garden out. Other than that, my garden is done!!!!
