I have been a bit bummed about my garden. As you all know, my DH is a great guy and he can build the most fantastic things. A green thumb he does not possess: you can read about my gardening exploits here. (There are several different versions of this story over the years.) I have been trying to grow hollyhocks. One year, soil sterilizer- killed everything. Next year tried from seeds--none came up and we had a ton of rain. Last year I had some growing, while cleaning the gutters a ginormous pile of soggy, stinky leaves were dropped on my plants which were just starting to get a little height by DH. This year I was so excited that they were actually starting to get a couple of buds, and BAM the torrential rains began. See not his fault. I took some string and wrapped them up to get them to stay upright, earlier they were all laying sprawled out all over the lawn. UGH!
No sewing, but we have been working a wee bit on the house getting things ready for later this week. We are leaving on vacation, the kids are moving in so they can have more room to run, play, and our house is bigger, and has better A/C. I thought it was time to change up the quilt hanging in our "living room" for the upcoming holidays too.
