Not much to blog about this morning – yesterday I wasn’t home for half of the day and the rest was a lazy rainy day where one doesn’t feel like doing anything – least ways rainy days sometimes get to me like that – they make me tired and have no energy – I need the sun! But I can’t complain about the cooler than normal temperatures so I guess I shouldn’t complain!
Today I intend to move the coffee table out of the way and lay all the Primary Colors blocks out on the floor and do color arrangement and place all the side pieces on both sides and hopefully get the side pieces stitched. Once that is done after I take several photos I hope to be able to stack the rows and start stitching.
The pantry cupboard with my bounty from the tiny garden – all the blue top labels are Marinara Sauce – the others are herbs. I have not been able to dry near the amount of herbs that I had last year and I must say almost every single basil plant died this year – what I do have have remained so small I have none dried.
My Morning Glories took forever to flower but they are going at it every day now – not a lot but getting more buds every day – I thought I would cut one the other day to see how it does in a vase – although it only last one day it stays pretty the whole day – so I cut a few more – next to it is a sweet potato that I am growing for a vine this winter in the house – I did that once years ago and it created a very pretty hanging plant – if it takes hold and grows maybe I will be able to plant it outside in the spring – I do plant sweet potatoes here but I haven’t tried them in the house as a plant in years. Now this plant seems to want to grow straight up! I guess it will bend over eventually. I love the purple star shape in the morning glory it adds so much to it.
I saw a new (to me) Sue Dailey pattern that English Paper Piecing people are going crazy over – Round We Go – it looks fun and I’m going to check on it and see what it is all about. I think the EPP craze has hooked me.
