I"ve been feeling a bit down lately. I'm not asking/looking for sympathy because I know we all, from time to time, feel down. I'm just saying. But, it's contributed to a feeling of being "brain dead" in terms of coming up with content to fill these pages.
Anyway, I did get the pillows completed that I talked about awhile ago. I'm only showing them to you here as proof that I actually do get a few things done now and then. :)
I'm very happy with them and glad I got them done before summer is at an end....since I did make them as "summer" pillows. I made one of the green "zebra' stripe and two of the "spots".
The garden is still looking pretty good even though we're now starting to have temps in the upper 90s. My "Champion" tomato plant is taller than I am and loaded with tomatoes. I've never had a tomato plant grow that tall before. I can't wait for the tomatoes to ripen as I'm pretty sure they are going to taste wonderful. This is a pic of one of the potted dahlias that sits on the back patio. It's a short and squat little plant - a survivor from last season - but it's got some really beautiful blooms on it.
I'm still wanting to do some fabric dyeing this summer. Wanting to try "ice dyeing" since I haven't done that before and I love everyones results that I've seen. I've gotta clean off a couple of tables in the garage before that can happen and it's just too hot right now to even think about.
I'm heading out the door now to pick up a friend. We're going to go "window shop" at Barnes & Noble and Michaels, then go to Panera Bread for dinner before I go to my quilt group meeting later on this evening. It will be nice and cool in the shops!
