Playing With A New App

I was reading someone's blog the other day and they mentioned an app called Waterlogue..I bought it and have been having some fun making some of my photos to look like watercolor paintings. I think I am going to get some of them printed, frame them and make a photo college.

Aren't these pictures great? Tell me what you think about this app and tell me what you could do with something like this.....Sew until next time,,,have a Stitches kind of day..

Flowers From My Garden

This never photographs very good, It's called  Dragon Arum. Or Dragon Lily. It has a very unique blossom, that smells like something dead for a couple of days!! 
pretty pink peony
I love the purple and lime green of this blossom. Only 1 plant and it is filling up the whole pot.
Red Lilies
I have extended an invitation to you.

White daisies that come up year after year anywhere they want to..just try getting rid of them!
More red lilies
Wish they could last until the 4th of July

We were threatened with hail again this morning, so I drug the pots that I could lift into the garage for the 3rd time in the past week or 10 days. And it did hail, pea size to large marble but it doesn't look like it did much damage to the rest of the flowers..It has quit raining and the sun is shining, it is going to be a nice day, a little humid and the temps are going to be around 90..time to shut up the house and turn on the AC.  Sew until next time, have a Stitches kind of day!!!

I like it!!

I just got this new little lamp from Ikea and I think I am really going to like it. It's great for handwork, hand quilting and etc. It wasn't that expensive either. A friend was in Chicago and picked up several lamps  so I didn't even have to pay shipping. Its good for 20,000 hours and then you have to recycle it and buy a new one!  Older eyes need good light!!!!   Most of my small quilting group ordered them...Sew until next time, have a Stitches kind of day...
