have to get better about updating :)

figure i should post updates on my mundane life. :)

working on finishing a few little projects around the house (like finishing the dining room project i started in february). it was too hot to work in the gardens this past weekend (and honestly, i was too afraid there'd be a snake making it's presence known to me) so i did a little painting, a little housework, a little knitting (five squares done for the afghan i started last weekend...only 58 to go).

have to start thinking about making some soap for the fall and adding some fragrances to the list. i think i pared back a wee bit too much and need some scents that are dazzling! thinking about getting into EO blending but i'm so incompetent with the complex blends i prefer that it might be safer to stay with the lovely fragrances i adore. (call me a scent slut, it's okay...and true).

finally finished...

it's only been a year or so and she's finally off the needles! this is a pretty mercerized cotton sweater with one of the funkiest lace stitches...took me HOURS to figure it out.

i've already started an afghan - two nephews are getting married next year and i need to give them something from the heart. :)

lots and lots of flowers coming from the gardens. life is good!
