DH has been eating asparus daily, with potatoes, with butter, wtc etc, even scrambled eggs, ha ha

nice for it to rain after the planting.. sometimes mother nature is nice, other times not.

You're right Ruthann. I'm so ready to let the asparagus go. Seems like I've had it with every meal for the last 3 weeks. I find it soesn't taste as good to me after freezing or canning so i just enjoy it fresh.

Raining here today again. We had almost 2" Monday. Sure makes the garden happy. I feel so bad for those in the flood and drought area though. Crazy weather for sure.

It sounds like you had a very productive weekend Ruthann. I planted some dahlia bulbs and pulled some weeds. Still haven't gotten the flower bed straightened out. It's a mess.

Janice are you going to let Greg try on the one sock when it gets finished? You sure are a fast knitter. I've got laundry going too. I need to remake the guest bed when it's done. 

Take care all.

back to work again, at least only 4 days this week, ha ha

stated on a few new projects, did not get far, had SIL had to go visit as just came from Arizona for the summer, my DS and DIL invited us over for a barbeque, helped DH plant some of the garden, seeds and potatoes, onions, no plants yet. trasnsplanted couple plants from tiny flower garden in back where the big shade tree got clown down after wind storm year before, daved a few from the hot sun are now in a small shade gardn by the office, put up oriole and hummingbird feeders, the 2 bird baths, fid household chores, hung winter bedding on the line, etc, rained here half the day Monday, then got hot and humid. did not do as much sewing as wanted, but still waiting for some dabrics ordered to finish what started, always next weekend as will be raining the weather said, perfect for indoor stuff.

Iea those are some stunning quilt items, never be up my alley, way too hard. thankyou for sharing

Carol that is such a adorable set quilt and pillow with a ruffle, she is going to love them.

just getting asparagus here Barbara, suppose by you almost done, what great weather was for fishing as not too warm or cold.

Janice have fun figuring that thinner yarn, am not too keen on thin yarn, tangles up on me. ha ha, good found some good books to check out, love the colorful quilt link.

Kathy how is the weather there? are you almost done with the black beauty and hissing fish?

I saw a book on a site which was an

e-book i did a search & it was what

i thought a bit expensive well i found

it on eBay with an make me an offer

so offered £2 less than it was on sale

for thinking may pay a £1 less but no

the first offer was accepted so got it

i also have a book coming today as i

have signed up for Amazon prime

i very much doubt i will keep prime

once trial is over as i don't use amazon

enough & not worried about the films

I have tomorrow a couple of packages

coming but gifts i am getting for

Greg as it birthday in a week's time

I done the heel flap on the sock

this is the part where i really have to

work out as the pattern don't go up

to the amount of stitches i am using

i will figure it out once i have done

i will know if i got it right once he tries them on

Well you have a Blessed day take care
