Well it has been a rainy day today in Florida. With the frost we had last week the grass turned brown from it but I bet with this good rain (about 1/2") it will quickly turn green again unless we get another frost over the weekend. It is a possibility. I bought 4 large pots of beautiful pink geraniums to fill my 2 pots out front and before I could plant them they advised possible frost so they have been living in and out of my garage. this morning I planted them and before I could water the rain started so that was lucky. Rain water is always so much better for plants then tap water.
I still haven't done any needlework. I am in a reading mode right now and still trying to get by whatever it is that has been hanging on. I will go back to the Dr. next week if I still don't feel right. I did bake a banana cake today and iced it and will have a piece after I finish this with my coffee. I usually have a cup after supper - decaf only.
I mentioned about putting some of my past needlework on here until I get moving again. I am the grandmother of 5 boys and only 1 grandaughter. The boys are from 5 to 15 and the GD is 13. I made her christening gown and smocked all her birthday and christmas dresses when she was younger plus always made a christmas dress to match for whatever American doll I bought for her that year. I don't have pictures of them all on here but do have some. I will start with her Christening dress but don't have a pic of the bonnet. Don't know why I didn't take a sperate one of that. Must do that. I still have the set at my house, dress, slip and bonnet and have it wrapped in the special white tissue and preservation box. I remember taking the fabric up to our cottage and sitting for hours doing row after row of pintucks. No wonder I have a bad upper back now. One of my friends blames by back problem on what she calls my sweat shop sewing room.
I also made a smocked romper and boys bonnet for the boys in each family. My daughter has the 3 boys and my son the 2 boys and 1 girl. Each of the boys wore the romper for their christenings.
