seems to be giving us Michigander's all that we want with heat.  
I, for one, am not complaining the snow will be flying well soon enough!
The flowers are loving the heat it seems.....

Coneflowers, marigold....basil and orange mint

Tansy and Rosemary, and....

Two little mischief makers under my feet while I try to water, deadhead and gather a bouquet!
They keep my life here on the Lane busy and interesting to say the least.

Busy this afternoon with some sketching of some new designs....wool appliqué and punch needle.
My take on Heart in Hand, a lumpy pumpkin and a sweet Angel among them.  
A studio full of busy, happy Stitchers today inspired me to get busy on these and what better place to be on a hot afternoon than in the air conditioned comfort of the Cellar Studio~
Will share the new designs soon.....
If you've a hankering to come stitch with us we have open stitch the first Wednesday of each month, 10am-2pm, and first Thursday evening, 5-9pm.  
Just shoot me an email or ring me up to let me know you'll be here, we'd love to have you join in the fun.  Bring along a project you're working on or we'll help you choose one here to get started on.  

Now....back to the drawing board,
and remember....
take time to stop and smell the flowers!
