Late August seems to be bringing new blooms to my garden. Usually by now, there is not a lot left - especially of the petunias which are so pretty in June and July.
But now there are marigolds, snapdragons, sunflowers,
larkspur, alyssum, all mixed together.
I've been stitching flowers this week, too! I finished up the Kathy Schmitz design called "Spring Steep" and framed it with a round wooden embroidery hoop. I was inspired to try this by Crafty Gardener's project last week, and I'm really happy with it!
I found the perfect spot to hang this, too - a little nook in the kitchen.
From embroidered flowers to fabric flowers... I found a sweet backing for the hexie flower quilt and got it all ready to quilt.
Even took a few stitches in the center block, too!
I'll be quilting on this today and for awhile!

Beautiful flowers all around, Diann.
"Spring Steep" colors looks like was inspired by your own garden, so cute!
That embroidery is just gorgeous Diann! It looks perfect in your kitchen. Those are beautiful flowers in your garden. Did you plant seeds or plants? The colors are fantastic. Nice progression on your hexie quilt.
Love your piece of embroidery and it looks lovely where you displayed it. Thanks for the shout out to my site. Your quilt is looking lovely.
Your garden is so pretty and cheerful!
Your embroidery is beautiful! I love the little bee buzzing above the flowers. Great finish!
Nice start on hand quilting the hexie flowers too.

Lovely flowers and lovely floral stitching, too--nice work--love those little hexagon flowers...so pretty--hugs, Julierose
Your flowers are looking great, mine are doing well too. I only wish the vegie garden would do the same.
Your flower garden is so pretty with all those colors. What a great way to wrap up the summer season. Your little embroidery in the hoop looks perfect in that kitchen nook, too! Don't you love having just the right backing for a project? That's a good one to be working on, with the flower theme you have going!
I always enjoy seeing your pretty embroidery! I'm glad that your garden is doing well. My pots have mostly drowned or dried up in the heat. Except for geraniums and marigolds, which are unaffected, so I still have some color.
oh wow beautiful flowers!! I wish I had a spot that looked like that
Lovely stitchery project!
Wow, your garden flowers are pretty. Do you re-seed each year, or do they seed themselves?
What a sweet finish! I love that embroidery and you found the perfect place for it! Enjoy your quilting today!
Your sweet embroidery looks great in the hoop. I like how you are quilting the hexie flowers. That backing fabric is very pretty.
Your embroidery has found the perfect home. And your garden is a wonderful riot of rainbowy color. I've got zinnias, marigolds and brown-eyed susans in bloom, but they are scattered all over and don't present a unified picture.
Your garden looks beautiful! I can see where the colour inspiration for your embroidery came from too.
So many pretty flowers! Love the wild flowers and the flowers in your embroidery are very pretty. Enjoy the stitching on your little quilt today.
Your embroidery came out so lovely and...well...warm. It just looks so cozy in your kitchen! Beautiful quilt and quilting!
Your garden is so beautiful and colourful. Happy hexie quilting :)
Your garden is so beautiful! I definitely need to add more later-summer flowering plants to my garden; it is so drab right now.
