Finding Beauty

A heartfelt thank you for all the comforting comments on my last post.  The family has made arrangements for a memorial next weekend and has requested that no one wear black; as Aaron was a happy kid who loved sports, they have even suggested wearing sports jerseys.  Rest in peace, little guy!

I took this photo of some gorgeous gladiolus stems the evening we heard about Aaron.  
The sunset was making them glow in my kitchen's garden window.

I always wish flowers like this had a wonderful smell to go along with their beauty, but I am enjoying them just the same.  I have been sewing a bit and plan to do even more today.  I sure would like a finish this month and only have a few days to do it!  Happy Saturday, everyone.

The glads are really beautiful Annie. Did they come from your garden?

Happy sewing. Can't wait to see what you've been up to. I'm on a roll this weekend too. I'm fed up with WIP's and inactivity.
