Sewing, gardening, yadda, yadda
Haven't had much time for sewing lately. I was originally going to try to make at LEAST one monkey block a day, but that was a week or two back. Here is all I've done recently.
The sawtooth border strip is new; the other border strip is left over from a project a couple of years ago, but the colors work. I'm still enjoying this using of scraps mixed with the monkey fabric and the Marston "liberated style."
Yard work and all the other concerns of life have been taking time lately. Yesterday, among other things, I went to Cold Water Creek, Ann Taylor, and Dillard's looking for casual clothes. Didn't find anything that I liked or that fit...one or the other. Since I have little patience for shopping, that was a big undertaking and a lot of lost time for nothing. I couldn't face going anywhere else.
Took the groceries over to Laddie's, then headed back to my side of the river and to the library where my friend Donnie (librarian) made fun of me because the books were overdue. "So what?" I say. "A two dollar fine for the use of all of these books for a little more than two weeks--well worth it." He just grins. We've had this conversation so many times.
The trip to the library was more profitable than the attempt to find clothing, but since I have so many stacks already waiting, completely unnecessary.
Home Depot provided tomato plants, dill, cilantro, various pepper plants, zucchini and crookneck squash, eggplant, and marigolds. :)
