HAPPY 4TH!!! I need a break!

Happy 4th of July everyone! See I haven't forgot about my blog... just been busier than I have EVER been in the summer...

Heehee! My little garden helper....
Ok! I couldn't resist, now seriously.... I have managed to crochet quite a bit during my son's Jiu Jitsu classes that last an hour and he takes 2 or 3 times a week!
This little pullover vest was super fast and really easy. Made using some cool Japanese yarn that I would have never been able to afford... and it was still expensive on sale! But it made me feel better that it was on sale ;) And I got to tell The Bald Man I bought the yarn on sale...
Know what I mean???? lol!



I have been sewing... I made a beautiful dress by draping that I need to picture. Otherwise I've just been making lots of basics... 4 tanks, 2 tees and 2 yoga pants.... I'm going to do some lite weight cropped jackets too.... For my....
" 'Round the house yoga/walking Wardrobe" My 'round the house wear was looking kinda sad. So I thought it was time to make some cute stuff that I could wear to do yoga in, go walking and look decent wearing in case I need to go to the door for a package or something!! I'm making some yoga 'gear' too!
*******************************************************************************
Now Just look at The Bald Man's little terrace corn field! In between the rows he also has different squash planted and beans that are growing up the corn stalks! Its his FIRST garden ever! I think he's a natural!


My garden is doing fabulous too... EXCEPT my tomatoes.... they got Early Blight so all had to go!
But thats ok... I've got TONS of cucumbers, squash, zucchini, onions... even some blueberries!!!! ... and lots more on the way!!!
All my herbs are huge... I love using fresh herbs in my cooking!




I'll try not to be so slack this month! I really do have alot I would like to show all my blog buddies out there!
Y'all have a great 4th and a great weekend!
God bless you and Stay Safe!!!!!!!

Happy July 4th. Lovely vest and looking forward to seeing your yoga gear. I agree with Faye a lot of salad making will be going on.

I'd like to take your garden helper home. Doggie is adorable. Nice job on the vest! I know what you mean about walking/yoga clothes. I sure wish I could sew faster - really have to add some tees and stretch pants to my sewing plans! I'm jealous of your newbie gardener husband. Our corn crop was dismal and the tomatoes weren't much better. Welcome back!!!
