Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Fathers Day to those of you who are fathers. 
My father has been absent from the earth for many years, but I still miss him.  He was not a perfect father, but I love him dearly for the good qualities he did have.  I can appreciate those, since I am not perfect either (or even close)!
I am amazed at the wealth of beauty in our small yard.  We live in a suburb with neighbors all around.  This is not a large estate, and yet over the years we have created a rich tapestry from the blank canvas we had when we moved here almost thirty years ago.  God is good!

Miss Ru had a procedure on Friday that took several hours, which I spent in the waiting room.  I took a couple of projects with me, including this little "busy box" of four patches.  All the seams got spun, then I pressed them later that night. It's good to have something to do with your hands when you have to wait.
Confession:  I am not a morning person.  Just give me a little time to actually wake up though and I'll be much nicer. I am laughing out loud here, or maybe just snickering a little, at this little dog who showed up in my email this week.  I can SO relate.
Hope you're having a good, good day!  We are having a family dinner here after church today to honor the wonderful husband who is such a good father to our children.  I am so thankful for him!
Hugs and kisses,

We had our Father's Day celebration yesterday so that DD and the Ts could make today a special one for DSIL.

I'm not much of a morning person either ... I love the early morning, but I need at least a couple of hours before I'm ready to start my day. ;-)

I love your garden ... gorgeous!

Oddly enough, we celebrate Father's Day here in September. But we share the same day for Mother's Day. No idea why!
Best wishes to your daughter.

Hope you had a nice Father's Day and Miss Ru is doing better.. It's best to take something along when we visit a hospital or doctor's office.. Those squares look so pretty. Hugs, xo

My father has also passed, but our children recognize for my husband, the father of our family. Hope miss Ru is doing well!
