But look at all of these treasures that were in with the magazine!
The patterns are all designed by Diane (and available on her Etsy shop!). And she also gifted me with some fabrics that she knew would be perfect for my jewelry. Love those tiny flowers and stars! Thanks so much Diane - it was a really great mail day!
And of course, you remember that I caved and signed up for Primitive Gatherings, Summer block of the week program - which means that Marty the Mail Lady delivers a fun package once a week! I am still keeping up with the prep work, but am far behind on the stitching. I love sunflowers and still have no regrets about caving in for this one!
I wish I was keeping up more on the stitching, but I'm just not always as productive as I would like to be. And...it's not always all my fault! I've been working on the "bling" for Charming 3. Now this involves lots of tiny beads and spacers and all kinds of fun stuff. Oh...and surprise, surprise...look who wants to help...
Little Miss Callie! She is so grabby! She actually did steal one of the little bead sets that I had just finished. I had to chase her through the house and pry it away from her!
And speaking of non-productivity - I haven't hand quilted forever! And I'm going to blame this one on Ozzie!
Do you think that hoop makes his butt look big?
Another thing that I'm not keeping up with is the garden! We had a lot of green beans
and I just can't keep up with them! I really only want enough to eat - don't really want to take the time to can them. But - there's too many to eat! So, they are going to waste right now.
Yes...there are a ton of things that are not getting done around here - but we are accomplishing something! Here's some jewelry that we recently finished...
Now that you have seen all of the things that aren't getting done, guess I better get off of this computer and get busy!
Hope you have a great day!
