I want to start by sending a thank you from the entire family for all the greetings and good wishes on The Princess' happy return. The warmth in each came through in every one. It has been such fun for our little family to be all under the same roof once again. It won't be long before we are settled into a daily routine. She's already begun the process to enroll in school, job hunting won't be too far behind . . . a girl does need a little vacation first.
We have had some wonderful weather. All the charts that showed average June sunshine at 3 days went right out the window. It has been very nice and has helped the garden really get going. All the plants are very happy. This is the Saturday morning harvest just from the pepper patch.I separated out the Anaheim's for roasting. After they were peeled and seeded, a portion was used for tacos and the rest went into scrambled eggs.
Radishes! The seeds were planted on the 3rd of June. Color me -Amazed.
There has been a little bit of sewing. This morning I stitched myself a little bag to hold clothes pins. I had been keeping them in the plastic bag they were purchased in. Totally unsatisfactory. I just clip the drawstring to the line and it slides along right ahead of me.
This afternoon I stitched down the binding on my Four Seasons Summer Swap quilt. It's been washed and is now hanging on the line. A view of the back before I attach the label.
And the front before just a couple of small embellishments.
Then it can be on its way. I have thoroughly enjoyed each season of this swap - the quilts I have made and the quilts I have received. It's hard to believe that a whole year has gone by since sign ups for Fall 2007 began.
I am getting very close to putting the last quilting stitches in The Princess' quilt. Then binding and label. The new deadline is July 6 - her last official day in the Air Force. If I keep my nose to the wheel, I really think I can meet the new deadline.
