Well...it's kind of cloudy out there again, but I doubt it will rain today and we didn't really get enough rain to mention yesterday. Disappointing. At one point, Fletch came into the office to tell me it was starting to sprinkle. We ran out because I had two loads of wash on the line. The wash had gotten pretty wet, so we just left it on the line. The sprinkles stopped and within an hour and a half, the laundry was dry. Yup - Fletch watered the garden last night.
Also noticed that the leaves of our eggplant plants on the patio are covered in some disease or fungus. Fletch moved the pot back and away from the herbs so that the leaves would not touch them. I plan to harvest the eggplants today or tomorrow. Our neighbor Rob has a very large garden and he has discovered the many of his plants are getting moldy (he thinks he may have over-watered). As Bonny wrote yesterday, everything around here is just so parched.
Enough of that same-old-same-old story. It's Tuesday and time for a Tiny Needle update. Not surprisingly with all my weekend activity and friends visiting, I did not get that much stitched on my sampler, but I did get a few motifs stitched.
The corner has been turned!! There is more to this sampler though. After I get the bottom motifs stitched, there is a border under them and then the full alphabet. So, still a little bit of a way to go. I've been going over options (in my head) for my next piece and I'm pretty sure it will be a BIG one. I'll need to get moving and order some fabric though. The look of this sampler on 40 count appeals to me so much that I will most likely go with a high count linen again. Still TBD, but that's the way I'm leaning.
Yesterday wasn't too bad work-wise and I'm hoping for more of that today. I'm working on the two meetings/events (Florida in late August and Arizona in September) and that is keeping me busy. Fletch and I will do a quick grocery shopping today (if nothing else, we definitely need cat food - lol). I'm at the point where I've started dreaming of soups and chilis and stews and winter comfort food...but we are not yet there temperature-wise.
Wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday - enjoy!!
