I want to say first of all how much your encouraging words about our garden meant to us this week. Hubby worked the ground last night and now we're ready to start the garden all over again. I'm going to the feed store this morning to buy more seeds, and hopefully we will get everything in the ground before the rain and thunderstorms arrive.
Since it's supposed to rain tomorrow, I'm planning a day of sewing with some patterns I bought on EBAY a few months ago. One is for an adorable pair of "Sunbonnet Sister" dolls- I don't know if you can tell much about the picture, but they wear beautiful long dresses and old-fashioned bonnets. The other is a McCall's pattern for a set of hand-embroidered items. My beautiful friend Kathleen from Yesteryear Embroideries has inspired me to try this! If you have not seen some of her work, you really need to go visit her. My mother also did hand embroidery, and I wish she was here to help me, but I'll just have to do the best I can. I really want to learn how, because I think it is a beautiful (and dying) art.
Hostage Crisis, Day 12: If Hubby and I were half as determined with our garden as the Little Terrorist is about her eggs, we'd have one heck of a crop! Look how spread out she is.. she's really sitting tight. Of course, if I'd been sitting that tight for 12 straight days, my butt would be the size of Atlanta.
8 more days until hatching!
