Flowers Without Sweating

Yesterday was the first day of summer, so I had to go out in my yard and celebrate the season a little bit by sweating a lot and checking on the progress of my blooming plants.


Here’s what’s blooming in my Arkansas yard—



Shamrocks (I’m so proud of my daughter. She kept this plant alive in her room all winter long!)


Daylilies


Begonias


And a stray, but absolutely perfect, little wildflower…



After returning to the air conditioning…I contemplated my options for adding some florals indoors and started pulling out the pattern books and browsing through my eBook collection!

Loving the flower-bedecked beauties in Elizabeth Angus’ Just Add Flowers quilt pattern book! (Also available in eBook!)

With this Crocheted Flowers For Every Wear pattern book from Kooler Design Studio, I could have flowers from head to toe! (Also available in eBook!)

How cool would it be to create flowers from duct tape? You can with Patti Wallenfang’s Just Duct Tape It! craft pattern book! (Also available in eBook!)

Or I could Stitch a Beaded Garden with the 18 nostalgic designs in this pattern book by Sharon Maxwell Kendall Perry! (Also available in eBook!)


And I discovered that I don’t have to sweat to enjoy watching the flowers bloom! I can just reach for my trusty pattern book or eBook, and I’m ready for anything!
