Quaker Diamonds and Jacarandas

So I finally got to stitch just a tiny bit.  I was happy to sit and work on Quaker Diamonds, and  here it is:

Life has been exceedingly busy and full of challenges. I wish I had more time to relax and work on my beloved hobby, but that is how it goes.

A few weeks ago I took a slight detour on the way home from work so I could check the progress of the yearly splendor on the branches. Yes, it's time for the jacarandas to bloom again.  I love to see their purple bursts of color all around the area.  Here's a photo I took that one evening. (I wasn't driving!) This street isn't far from where I live, but it's one I travel down often just to enjoy the gorgeous trees.

Thanks for stopping by today!
