Been kind of busy the past few weeks. Spent the 4th in Omaha, had fun but time went too fast as usual. We saw some fireworks and enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Ladie got to meet Diesel, they both lived through the experience so that is good. Ladie didn't like it when Diesel came to play with me, but I think it will resolve with some time spent together.
This weekend I worked on taking pictures so I can get my etsy shop updated. I have added several sets of stitch markers. I have some more pictures of bags to edit and get listed.
I need to get back into sewing, but just haven't found the motivation....I know once I sit down and start I will get going again, its just the initial starting. I think I will blame it on the weather....just too hot. I have a new design bouncing around in my head, but as usual it needs a little more time and I need to make time to sit down and play with it. I will be making a dog bed for Diesel soon, but first I am waiting for the dimensions so I know it will fit where it will be going, unfortunately I was told I can't make it pink :0(
No real knitting progress to report my current socks are stalled as I haven't made time to work on them. And Meghans sleeves are very slowly coming along, maybe I'll have them ready for her by the time it snows.....luckily they are long sleeves.
I did spin up some lovely wool this weekend. I have 2 spools that need to be plied together when they have had a day or 2 to rest.
My garden is growing wonderfully. I forgot to take pictures yesterday when I was working on them, but my eggplant is growing, it is about 5-6 inches long now. I have some grape tomatos that have turned red. Tons of tomatos on my bush plant, one is starting to turn color. My pea plants are doing ok, they are starting to bloom again, so maybe I will get a few more off them. My other eggplant have 2-3 blooms on it but no baby eggplants yet. My lettuce is sad looking, I moved it so it would get more shade from the bush tomato plant, but it is pretty scraggly looking. My mint is growing great now. I want to try to make some sun tea with it, but haven't tried it yet.
Here are a few pictures of the monster, he was 'helping' me with my picture taking yesterday.....
