Another pair of pillowcases done.  When you are retired and live by yourself you have lots of time on your hands.  When I am not working in the yard and have all my housework done I either crochet or embroider.  I am now working on some dresser scarfs which when finished I will post the pictures.

These are three of my encore azaleas that I have in front of my house.  The middle one is
pink and the other two are red.  I enjoy watching the butterflies and yes hummingbirds that
come to get the nectar from the flowers.  I have tried getting pictures of the hummingbirds
that comes around but have not been able to get my camera in time before he or she leaves.
The butterflies do not stay long enough to get a good picture.   Click on picture to enlarge.

This is what I have been doing when I have time, embroidering these holiday table runners. 
I can not wait to be able to use them.  I also have crocheted a couple of baby afghans which
I will post later after I give them to the mother to be.  Click on picture to enlarge.

"Fairest of the months!  Ripe summer's queen the hey-day of the year with robes that gleam with sunny sheen.  Sweet August doth appear."
