Poppy and I worked outside, mowing and weeding, in this awful heat and humidity yesterday from 7:00 am to noon. We both looked like we were just before having a heat stroke when we decided to call it a day and finish the yard work early this morning.
Well, early this morning Poppy said, "how would you like to ride to Henderson instead of working in the yard"? Oh gosh, that sounds good to me! We needed a few things from Walmart anyway, and a bale of hay for the goats...I was tickled to death to get away for a while.
After all my complaining about the tomatoes, all of a sudden the vines are loaded.
These are called blue beauty. All of the tomatoes in the teeny tiny garden were grown from seeds sent to me from the blog "Texan". It's fun seeing the different varieties, most of which I've never heard of.
these cute ones are Pomodoro.
Anyhow, don't you love blogging? I saw this Dottie Angel pattern on Pom Pom's blog and fell in love with it...so I ordered one for me.
I really really love the three different calico prints in "View C", but thought I would try making the little tunic in solid white, from a piece of fabric I found at the thrift store for a quarter. Here's how it turned out...
It's nice and cool to wear around the house. Now I want to try the calico.
Finally, after all these years of sewing, I broke down and bought one of those cardboard cutting things that open up...I have accidentally cut a slit in many a bedspread or comforter trying to cut out a pattern on the bed.
of course, Dumperoo thought I brought it home just for him.
Now how am I supposed to lay out a pattern!
I'm seriously thinking about getting a pillow and joining Eli on the other end of couch. He has another teddy bear too...
I'm hoping to be back soon!
