How my garden grows…

I’ve been looking into more information about permaculture and ways of growing a garden without tilling, digging or watering. The way I’m doing things now is for the birds, way too labor intensive. Nature grows easily if you work with it. I am enjoying some results. The sunflowers look amazing and so beautiful after first…

Progress!

I’m happy to report today – actually tonight – I have made progress in the studio! The main progress being the much-needed addition of a proper chair in which to work. For comparison’s sake, here is the chair I had been using… Not much to look at, is it? It wasn’t the worst chair I’ve…

Fabrics I Have Been…

I spent three hours working in the garden this morning, even though I thought last night there wouldn’t be much to do. Things are looking really nice. More Velvet Queens… I’m pretty sure this is a 6 foot fence. You can see how tall the sunflowers are getting. It says a lot for the benefits…

The happy cat…

I wish that title was about having found a new home for one of the kittens, but, alas, they are all still here. There’s no room in the inn, so to speak. After making a number of attempts to take the kittens to the shelter, including a for-sure appointment last week, we were turned down…

July and stuff…

So, we’re well into… I noticed yesterday I hadn’t even registered the new calendar photo for the month. It’s like I was seeing it for the first time. Weird. In the back yard some of the sunflower plants are a good two feet over my head, most still not flowering yet. However, I did notice…

Just a bit…

Is it the lazy, hazy days of summer that are making me so sleepy? I was busy today, except for another mid-day nap. Naps are unusual for me, but I think I feel better because of resting more. Could be the hot humid mornings getting to me when I’m out doing chores. I’ve been working…

Moon Flowers…

This one’s done…Moon Flowers… Silk… Rayon… Cotton… Hand dyed by me… Finished with a┬áJude-inspired twist…   A nap and then some pool time is on the agenda. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.          

Moon Flowers and reflections…

It has been a lovely extended weekend. H has been home for four days. We really needed a break. He needed a break from the job. I needed a break from being alone. I got a nice bit of sewing done. Moon Flowers has come along… I’ve gotten some good movie watching in, too. I’ve…

Moon flowers…

I’m not sure if I’m just feeling introspective or not very talkative. I wasn’t very talkative in Texas, either. Things are changing as things do when you work on yourself. It’s ok. H has a four-day weekend. That’s a bonus of him being the boss now. He got to decide they all got an extra…

Not much, just a little…

I’m getting back in the swing of things here. Monday was spent driving home. Tuesday I mainly rested. I didn’t bother taking any sewing projects with me, as during those practices I rarely have time for anything else. The amount and type of work we do can be exhausting, so most days I fall into…

Another short one…

I’ve been busy upstairs today.   I was initially going to vacuum the floor and straighten up from when the cats were in the spare bedroom. I ended up completely redoing the room. I’m really happy with it. If you can’t tell, it’s my new therapy room. I used to do massage therapy, but now…

Just flowers…

Not a lot going on here today. Just some flowers to share. Stitched flowers… And some birthday flowers… I woke up with terrible shoulder pain this morning…too much stitching??? It hasn’t really let up so far. I’m going to go ice it while I watch a show. I hope you have a lovely day!
