Got so occupied yesterday I forgot but I’m still working on the hand binding of my pink project. Becky’s daughter, Jenny, is coming home today from Kentucky for a summer visit – just in time for some great Iowa sweet corn.
Our .6 of rain was a real drop in the bucket compared to some parts of Iowa that got 5-7”. My lawn is still green except in spots by the barn where it gets full sun.
As I look online and see pictures of great quilts I want to make them all- which we know is impossible but here’s one I love.
And here’s a reader quilt that I love and should make with some of my shirts included:
Remember my tomatoes in the galvanized wash tubs? Well, look at this!
Yesterday was a day in the dirt pile –
Filthy dogs! Hazel is easily washed but I ended up taking Telly into the automatic dog wash which I had never tried before. I needed two more hands! Had so much trouble with the whole operation that I’ll need some help before I try it again. At least her feet and legs were clean. When we got home she ran straight to the dirt pile and this time her legs were still wet so all was in vain. She came back to the house with imbedded dirt up to her belly and her face just covered with black dirt – enough to plant a seed in. I just had to give up.
The kittens who are still unnamed are getting along great. I do call gray kitty “Gray” so I guess it might just as well be Gracie – by default.
And remember Penny and Lucy? They’re really growing – especially their ears. Ha!
Today the blog about nothing is about pets, I guess.
