well, even tho i posted that picture of the tiger lily and called it “complete” – alas, that is not the case.  it was bugging me – something just not exactly right.  i have thus, decided to move the top and bottom borders in just a ‘skosh’.  not a task i’m looking forward to as this time those mitered corners gave me fits. 😦  i have the top one nearly completely off.  hopefully can push myself thru it today.  it probably won’t look much different to ya’ll – will just make me feel better. ^_^

and just so you have something to look at – here are pictures of the mama and baby dogwood trees in fall color. ^_^  little one complements of the birds. ^_^
