A sewing weekend!

This was a busy sewing weekend for me but boy did I get allot done. Daughter and I almost got the aprons done more mine then hers. She keep having to stop to take care of the boys but I'm sure there will be another day of sewing this week.
And look at this I was able to get my pumpkin quilt all put together and it is off to the quilters today! I was really worried that I would not find the time to get it done so it can hang in the hall for the fall season but its always nice when I find that little bit of time!
Have a great and beautiful summer day!

Life without a Computer!

Yes the computer is having big problems which makes it a problem to get any blogging done. But then there's not much to talked about right now anyway! I did think you might like to see some pretty little Blackeyed Susan's which I love. I planted them last year but they just didn't do very well but I have learned that out here where I live the second year is much better.
Remember the shawl that I was working on and then I thought the cable just might be wrong, will it was and I was able to get the correction. Then after taking it all apart and starting over I am now about half way done and hoping to finish it in the next two weeks. I did say hoping to finish!

The cable looks so much better and believe it or not it is much easier to knit!

Daughter and I cut out two aprons out of left over fabric from quilting and we have a date to sew them together on Friday!
Hope your computer is running good!

Espalier Apple Trees

We have spent the last five days working in the yard hoping to get the grass in soon. This is what I worked on its the fence into my garden. I was lucky enough to find the apple trees already espaliered. I put the posts in and then attached 16 gauge wire from post to post leaving a entrance into my garden. Then using a pair of old nylons I cut them into pieces and attached the branches to the wires. This fall I will do a little trimming and as they fill in I will have a beautiful living fence with fruit. After the garden is in I will be building a cute gate for my garden entrance!

Have a wonderful day!

They really make me sound like someone special. I could only wish that I was that talented!
