Hooray, hooray, we had sun all day! What a treat. I had weeded the complete garden a few days ago before the heavy rains began (I was so proud of myself) but . . . you guessed it. On a walk through the garden this afternoon, a whole bunch of the little green devils were poking up out of the soil. Apparently the weeds are appreciating the sunlight, too.
Look, look! I have cucumber plants that are almost 4" high! I say this (tongue in cheek) only because SOME people I know (yes, Stephanie, I'm talking about you) are already EATING CUCUMBERS!
A friend was recently making some mug rugs to give as gifts. I was thinking about hers when I took a good look at mine in my quilt room. I have three; one by each sewing machine and one on the cutting table. (I drink a lot.) They were a'lookin' pretty shabby (wonder how many years old they actually are?) so I decided I needed to make some replacements . . . shown above.
I had to make this one using the fabric from my recently completed summer top. I still have enough of it that I see pot holders appearing shortly.
I'm very attached to this cheapo glass we have. It says, "Beer Is My Life." Yup, that's me alright. Although a cold beer sure can be tasty in hot weather, if I drink a whole beer I'm down for the count. (I'm really what we used to call a cheap date.)
That's all for today, folks. (Is June over yet?) Hope your week is starting out as a good one.
