A Real Finish at Last!

One down, one to go!  Our two grand daughters have birthdays in August, 5 days apart. One gift is done and ready to mail, but I need to fill a request first. (She wants a night gown. Wish me luck!) Here it is, probably too large but that's better than too small, right?  Maybe if you enlarge the photo you will be able to see the buttons, they are suns!  Perfect for a rainbow sweater, don't you think?



I had to add these photos because the colors go so well with the sweater.  Our work in the yard has been rewarding, lots of pretty flowers.




Waiting for this fuchsia to open took a while but sure paid off!


Our newest rose tree outdid itself!  In a few days of warm weather, it looked like this.


Have a great week.  More soon of our weekend in Cannon Beach, OR, but now I have to get back to work.

The roses are beautiful, but the fuchsia is stunning! I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like that.

Your roses are lovely Judy ... and the colour of that Fuchsia is incredible!!
Rich, deep and saturated! Your picture would love amazing blown up
and framed I think.

That is a gorgeous sweater. Your Granddaughter will love it I am sure.
Especially since, with all those layers of colour, it will go with just about
anything. The sun buttons were a touch of genius!!

Cheers!
