Plenty to share.

I have gathered some seeds from my morning glories. If you would like a few just e mail me at I will be happy to send some your way with instructions and other pertinent info. They will look like the morning glory in the picture below.

Thought you would like to see what the finished kitchen cabinets look like. Also you can see the white we chose for trim and doors. It is a nice crisp white with grey undertones. Just the kind of white we like!
Now we are working on the second bedroom that we use for our computer and hobby room. The walls will be the same green as in the hall. I am afraid it doesn't show up real well. I love the color but when it is wet and you are painting with it it is not real pretty! It looks more like a chartreuse and almost hurts your eyes to work with. But once it dries it is a very soft and nice green.
Is this not funny? I made breakfast for supper the other night and one of the yolks broke. When I plated it up it looked to me like the eggs where sticking out it's tongue! So I added ketchup nose and eyes! LOL!
Okay finally I will show you our stitching. I have been working on the moon and the rows of blue seem to be one hundred miles long! But it beats doing one stitching and tieing off! That I hate!
Jack is working on the large center rose on his quilt squares. I like the green he picked out to go with the yellow. I can not wait to make pillows out of them!

So be blessed and i send you loving huggles!

I'd love some morning glory seeds. I usually vines to grow up our deck railings, so Morning Glory vines would be perfect.

Love the colors you picked. My you have been busy little painters. How are you finding time to stitch?

Your breakfast cracked me up...and it looked yummy to boot. That's the one thing I love about going home on Mom cooks a huge breakfast on the weekends, but I always feel like I need a nap after I eat.

The morning glory is love! Wow, you are making good progress with the painting. Must be quite tiring. Try not to overstrain :)

The egg yoke sure looks like the egg sticking out it's tongue! And with the ketchup nose and eyes it looks really cute :)

Love yours and Jack's sewings as usual. Good work! Take care and have a blessed weekends! Hugs.

Dawn said...

I'd love some morning glories in our yard - do they do well in shade or do they need direct sun?

The egg is funny! We have breakfast for dinner at least once a week.

Come over and see a picture of our little dachsie that we loved for 14 years.

Your kitchen looks so crisp and inviting. Lovely choices there.

I love the stitchery with all the blue. The colors are so soothing.

Sharon said...

Oh Michelle, you have been busy! Your egg really looked like a long yellow tongue. Funny.I like your new cabinets. Great wip's too.

Nancy said...

You are just so ambitious to be painting! Your colors are so pretty! The green reminds me of a living room I once painted....I used Lemon Fizz but it had a greenish cast from the green draperies. I liked it myself.

Oh, your egg looks sooooo good!!! Think I'll make me a fried egg sandwich for lunch! Haven't had one in ages!!! Yum-yum!!! Before I even read what you wrote about your egg, I thought it looked like a tongue sticking out! How funny is that now!!! Oh, and I LOVE ketchup with my eggs, too!!!

You needlework projects are going to be so pretty when finished! I have some of that to finish, too! Someday! I really enjoy seeing things you make like that!

(((((( HUGS ))))))

Lucy said...

Love the way your kitchen cozy. Sorta like you just want to sit there with a nice cup of coffee and some homemade banana bread and talk stitching!!

I like the colors in your kitchen.
Gray is one of my favorite colors. The trim we chose has a 'pink' feeling to it. No wonder, it was called Tulip!
I chose white hinges.......I was sick the morning we bought them and the colors were all swimming together!
