Check out the new Dreamsleep WIP on the sidebar. Isn't she just gorgeous? I love stitching on this one, the browns are all pink/rose shades and the shading and blending is just beautiful. I did put it up this week to work on Taj Mahal but the break won't last long. If you look close you can see the folds in her skimpy little dress......and see all the purple shades.

On the home front, I've been doing alot of gardening and have all the flower beds in the front of the house in good order. Now to tackle the one in the backyard, I think I'll put it off until next week; so long as I get it done before the hot days start. I need to make another run to the nursery and hope they have some Lantana; I love this plant. It has dark shiney leaves and is loaded with clusters of tiny flowers and it grows from a thick stalk like a bush. Most common colors in this area are yellow, white, or red but there is a color called confetti (pink/yellow/orange) that is my favorite. It is a good choice as it will take the hot sun (100+ days) and not wither away. As long as you keep watering, it will keep flowering up until frost.
Hopefully the next time you visit Joyce (thank you sweetie) will have my slideshow added to the sidebar. Actually 2 of them - one for finishes and one of WIPs.

Wanda, Dreamsleep looks beautiful!

I love the Confettie Lantanas. When I was a kid we used to call them Fruit Loop flowers. We did it because those were the only colors in fruitloops back then...red, yellow and orange. I guess we were lucky they werent in black and white. ;) And they smell wonderful, all fruity like! I hope you can find some of the confettie!
