This is where Santa was on the last update.
I have finally finished the grey stitching on Santa's beard. Filling in the white floss will happen later as I don't want all of that white getting dirty. Once all the other stitching is done, I will work my way through the white.
I have also started working on the bow on the gift that Santa is holding.
Yesterday, I bought a few perennial plants. I had wanted to get a bunch at the end of Spring, but hurting my shoulder put all that on hold. I made a quick trip to a local nursery and bought a lavendar plant,
some purple Salvia
and two Gazania. The last plant is new to me, but I think will bring a nice pop of yellow where I planted them.
My tiger lily now has all 5 blooms open. I am loving it!
