The Adam and Eve Sampler by The Goode Huswife
I'm afraid the Algerian Eye stitches may not be the best, and I cheated and omitted the row of Queen stitch. Still I'm happy with it~it's the first of what I hope will be many Adam & Eve samplers.

I've also been trying to work on Mary Rayner by Threads Through Time a little bit. I had done part of the border and the flower in the upper left, back in the spring. The rest I've been able to squeeze in little by little over these two weeks.
I've not done well with my reading. I finished Secrets of Eden by Chris Bohjalian. Maybe it's because everything has felt so chaotic during this vacation, but I really didn't enjoy it and the ending was predictable. Siobhan, you were right, I am enjoying The Heretic's Daughter. I find I don't want to put it down.
I love to go to Old New Castle and look at all of the old houses and beautiful gardens. I'm trying to get used to this camera so the pictures really aren't that great. This garden and little house have always been one of my favorites.
Even when I'm out I can't shake cats. This one was VERY friendly.
I always seem to pick the hottest day to visit and I kind of wished this place was still open~something cold to drink sounded very appealing.
I get so caught up in looking at everything, that I invariably trip over something like this
Well, I think my alone time is coming to an end for now. Thanks again for visiting!
P.S. Thank-you to my son~I don't know if I would have been able to figure this html stuff out without his help.
