Summer so far

We’ve been having a busy summer with gardening, working, drawing, harvesting, knitting, art projects…..

This is the garden in mid-July.  We’ve got lots of volunteer okra that comes up every year.  Using painted tires as planters added such fun and color to the scenery.

The yellow zinnias are a stand out sight this year.

The cantaloupes were monstrous!!  I used compost this year in my garden. Funny thing, about compost.  Most of what went into my garden were volunteers that grew from the compost. 

doll 001 I made fabric strip dolls with the kids and moms (and even the Branch President) at our Pioneer Day celebration at church.

ukelele 003 Patrick ordered a Ukulele this summer and has been having nothing but fun!

Gloves & Jam 003 Mary learned to knit two gloves at once on circular needles and has been knocking them out fast.

She is trying to get ahead with the autumn- colored fingerless gloves. They are her biggest seller every fall and winter.

We had my birthday.  I made a yellow cake with home made orange frosting.
