A Verse

Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow--
You are not wrong who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
~Edgar Allan Poe~

Isn't it lovely?

Rob got David a bubble gun, and he and Hanna were playing with it outside today. I love this picture, even if he is all messy from eating lasagna! lol

This one is the one that worked the best. Please let me know if you think it works ok or not- I could just take it off, it didn't seem like anything was missing without it but I thought it was a nice touch. Thanks! Please excuse my wrinkles and the askew-ness of my charm, it got knocked a little when scanning!

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

I know, not much stitching lately but I have been on a roll reading books!  I was recently given the opportunity to read this awesome novel,...
