A Single Flower for the DDC

Today has started off VERY strangely.......DH said it was barely sprinkling, and that I should get into the hot tub and get some work done on my feet. As I stepped out the door, it was pouring. I thought, what the heck, and stepped in anyway. It felt lovely, but I was really wet with 2 different temperatures (the rain is pretty chilly!). I came in for coffee, and a check of the Sketch Challenge.
This is the result....and I used the Dare posted by LilLuvsStampin (Charlene) to catch up on what I missed while I was away. The rules this week were: paper piecing, piercing, and black, rose, and Kraft paper with Sage optional. These colors sure work for me!
Today is the big grocery shop day. DH is having his yearly checkup, and will come and get me.....I have been promised lunch out. Who could resist? It's supposed to rain all week (got this from you Southern gals, right??), so yard work will wait. So will just about everything cleaning or baking on rainy days!! Just reading, crafting, watching baseball games, and generally having fun. If it's raining where you are, skip the work. I give you permission!
Hugs to you all.
