Lots of gardening & cooking with the harvest

Onions
Spinach
Dill seed, lavender & other herbs

Travelling

CA:  San Francisco, the entire Napa Valley, Redding
(I'll share more on this later!)

Crafting/Sewing

[crickets]
That's right--not one single thing!  
But I'm pretty excited now that my crafting season
 is just around the corner!  School starts 
next week, we're headed to Colorado soon 
for one last vacation and then IT IS ON!


Though I did try to check in occasionally,
I've really missed following all my favorite blogs.
Just glancing today, I realized I don't even know 
what all the latest fabrics are, the latest trends....
and autumn decorating is my favorite!  
  I can't wait to see what you all have been busy with! 
(yes, I did just end my sentence with a preposition)
I have so much catching up to do!
But first, I'll be giving my sewing room a thorough
cleaning--not because it is gloriously messy, 
but because it's so pathetically DUSTY!!!

Glad you are almost back! Sounds like a wild but typical summer, so enjoy the last trip and get back ready to stitch!

Well look who has returned! I figured that the summertime fun got the best of you but it's nice to hear that you'll be coming back soon.

Have fun on your trip and we'll see you soon... you've been missed.

Wow, when we made sauce it took us a whole day we made so much! I can only imagine how long it took to preserve all those other goodies...I'm in awe.

I missed you - I am drooling over those tomatoes - if I lived close, I would raid your garden!
