Late blooms; autumn bouquet

Late blooms from my garden, picked this morning.  Roses, lavendar, and a sprig of rosemary for remembrance.  Their fragrance is simply heavenly.

Bead Embroidery!

I am taking a Bead Embroidery class through Craftsy ( The beads pictured here are tiny and I use a magnifying glass while working, so as not to completely blow out my eyesight. I love bead embroidery!

A note about Craftsy:  Simply the best platform out there for online craft classes and and all kinds of other hobbies.  I recommend Craftsy classes highly.
