The Vintage Stripe...

is done. Yeah

There pink scalloped edge is really "ruffle-ie", and I think it's my favorite part of the blanket.

My week has been crazy busy so far. I think I will be really happy when August is over and the heat is gone.

Praying for those affected by hurricane Isaac.

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green

If you haven't seen this movie yet, you really should - especially if you are a parent. I loved it.

Saturday Morning...

Good Morning...

It's going to be really hot here today with a high of 105 degrees. Yuck!

I am excited that my Vintage Stripe is almost done.

And that my new zucchini's are growing well.

Hopping you have a wonderful day...

I Could Write A Book...

Really, I could. And it would be called - My Adventures in Growing Zucchini - lol.

A week and a half ago, they looked like this. They all turned yellow and started to shrivel up, so I cut them all off.

And now, the new ones look like this...

And this, growing strong and healthy.

And then my husband had an idea. "Maybe you should have more than one plant so there are more male flowers to use for pollinating the female flowers on the zucchini." Not a bad idea, so I went out and bought a couple more. We still have a lot of hot weather here, and we love zucchini and I really want this to work. 

Hydrangeas - I really need to buy more of these plants.

And this is my little snail. It's made to put a candle in his shell. He is such a happy little guy...

I am finally getting the boarder on my Vintage Stripe blanket.

And, because I know you want to know, this is what I am listening to...

 I hope you are staying cool and enjoying your day. Here it is about 105 degrees and we had an earthquake this morning (and one last night).

Ladybug and Flowers Embroidery Pattern...

It took way too long for me to get this posted for you. But, I love this little ladybug. She looks so cute on my mug rug. Please enjoy this pattern...


Want To Print Out The Crochet Owl Pattern..?

I have had a lot of people ask for a printable version of my owl pattern and always felt bad telling them I didn't have it. Now I do :) You should be able to right click on the written pattern, choose to open it in a new window and then print it out. I will also put it on my facebook page so you can get it there as well.
