last day of juni

Time is going so fast I can not keep up with it
so I have to slow down
taking little stitches helps me
me and my little friend

summer Sun

Summer Sun
GREAT is the sun, and wide he goes
Through empty heaven without repose;
And in the blue and glowing days
More thick than rain he showers his rays.

Though closer still the blinds we pull
To keep the shady parlour cool,
Yet he will find a chink or two
To slip his golden fingers through.

The dusty attic, spider-clad,
He, through the keyhole, maketh glad;
And through the broken edge of tiles
Into the laddered hay-loft smiles.

Meantime his golden face around
He bares to all the garden ground,
And sheds a warm and glittering look
Among the ivy's inmost nook.

Above the hills, along the blue,
Round the bright air with footing true,
To please the child, to paint the rose,
The gardener of the World, he goes.

moments to remember

The last edge for the friendship quilt  more circle play and weaving  I am not sure yet how to do it
Just playing maybe the circles need to be smaller,
