A Gift from Q8 and Purple Iris

Look what arrived in the mail yesterday!  A beautiful hand stitched card from my darling blog friend Tammy who lives in Kuwait.  I'm in awe of the tiny stitches and gorgeous design and plan to frame this work of art so I can hang it in our den for all to enjoy.  *T*H*A*N*K* * *Y*O*U*!*!*!* Tammy!


I'm so attracted to the colors in this and the geometric designs.



We picked up the mail and headed to Multnomah Falls to pick something up at the visitors center and while Dayle walked in from the freeway parking lot I played with taking a photo of the card with the falls in the background.  :-)


The back of the card tells you the story of where it was created.  Tammy was born in the US but married a man from Kuwait and they have raised two sons there who are in college in the US now!  Do click on her link above and visit as she's just put up a new post with lots of travel photos and stories.



My purple Iris bloomed!  It's gorgeous and rich colored and I love it.  There are 3 of them in bloom now. :-)


I'm not sure which is the best angle to take a photo of an Iris, which image is your favorite?


Do you have any fun weekend plans?  We don't, but as you know.. I like a good amount of down time.  :-)  I'm off to swim in a few hours.  Thanks for visiting!  ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  1. Glad you got the card, Teresa. My husband was born in Kuwait but he is Palestinian and his roots are in Jerusalem. I guess that tells you where we stand on the new US Embassy opening there. :( Irises are blooming here, too, but we don't have that pretty color. Mostly orangeish ones. Have a good weekend.

  2. That is a beautiful card from Tammy! I received a surprise package from her in the mail yesterday too. What a sweet and generous lady she is. Our plans for the weekend are being at the lake, where I am now, and going to a nine-year-old’s birthday party tomorrow. It’s rainy and cool but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying my trailer. Have a great weekend Teresa.
    Blessings, Betsy

  5. The card from Tammy is so pretty and your Iris photos are both perfection to me! The painters made good progress today and I took another load of things to Salvation Army and did some weeding and general cleaning and packing. I hope to catch up on some sleep this weekend as well as get more chores done. Happy Weekend to you and yours! xx

  8. Nice gift from your friend. I like the photo you took with it at the falls. I wasn't able to stop there on our trip home from WA. Will go another time and hopefully get a few items I wanted to get then. We're at home and I'm working on cleaning and menus for next week. Your purple iris is pretty!Happy weekend!
