Summertime Hand Sewing

Summer is in full swing here with beautiful weather, blooms and a few finishes.  I have been busy hand sewing all week.  I finished up two of those vintage style tea towels. 
Can I say again, I love these patterns.  They don't require a lot of your time and they turn out super cute.  Oh, and isn't that little cup so stylish with her little bow and eye lashes.  The blackberries are freshly picked off our bushes.  I am assuming that they were quite tasty because the berry bandits sniped them shortly after I snapped some pictures.

I started the third towel and of course how could I forget my hexies.  I think that there are only two more hexies flowers left to sew together.  (Maybe) As I said before, a small hexie project has turned into a LARGE one.  I really can't wait to show all of you next month. 
How can I leave you without some summer blooms, but I can't claim this gorgeous lily for my own.  My sister has quite a green thumb when it comes to her flower and veggie garden.  This is just one.....
of many!!!!!
Look at how many blooms was on one lily plant.  Just beautiful!! It was it's own bouquet.  There had to be 40+ blooms on the one stem.
Hope you are having a great summer or winter depending on which part of the world you live!  ;)
