~ it is July, but I refuse to believe it!
It has been a busy, "working" weekend. I finally got the wool room cleaned. The wool is folded and on shelves or in baskets. In no way is it organized, but at least it's not in the jumbled piles it was before. I can't figure out if I swept up more wool dust or pug hair . . . lol!
I found some time to do yard work. Of course, I chose a couple of the hottest days of the year. I got the brick patio cleaned and my side porch done. I think it's about time, don't you? I also got close to half the flower beds taken care of. Here in northern we got NONE of the rain but thankfully also none of the damage from storms, either. Another storm is blowing in as I type and hopefully we will get some rain from this one. I have been watering so much I am afraid to get my next water bill!
My first black-eyed Susan of the season. I have these growing EVERYWHERE!
Isn't this a beautiful hydrangea? When my Mom passed away two years ago my former co-workers sent me this. I am so happy it is doing well!
Love the bright white of this viburnum.
For my birthday I had gotten a gift certificate to a garden center. When I finally got there the other day, I was happy to find they still had "endless summer" hydrangeas. I am pleased to report that I got them planted today.
I had planned to finish Henny Penny last weekend, and just got around to pulling the last few loops today. I need an honest opinion. On either side of Henny Penny, should I remove those blobs of color and just hook with the reversible black (LOVE that wool!) that I used for the rest of the background? At this point I don't think I like how it looks.
I need to get busy and plan my next project because before I know it, it will be time to leave for the Heavens to Betsy hooking retreat at Shaker Village in Kentucky. I thought I knew what I was going to work on, then changed my mind and I think I'm changing it again! . . . ACK! Why do I torture myself so?
I also put the binding on Little Dog, a fun pattern from Maria Barton of Star Rug Company. I just need to give it a light steaming and label it. Now that I've finished Henny, I still have four rugs to bind . . . sigh!
Thanks so much for stopping by.Pug hugs :)
