A strange and wonderful summer!

*Warning - Heavy picture post!*

My hooking and needle punching is just off the hook! (pun!  My first juried show is happening in September, and I want to make sure I have lots of items to fill my booth!  I will definitely carry yards and yards of hand-dyed wood for hooking, quilting, or what have you. (picture in the last post).  I also have small rugs and mats that should go well.  I've been advised to go easy on the larger rugs because of cost.....and I do love to hook the larger rugs!

 Little mats
 Pumpkin pillow

 Fraktur flower mat on a small step stool
Beginning needle punch to mount on a kitchen jar

Our garden is also going gangbusters!  We have sunflowers in the same bed at the beets

Bees busy at work!

 Listada De Gandia Eggplant (rumor has it these are hard to grow, but no problems here)!
 Okra flower.
 Surprise Birdhouse Gourd vine!  I have about 30 of these gourds from my garden last year.  Must've dropped a few seeds this spring! lol
 Yummy carrots!
 Potato towers!  These were an experiment that seems to be successful!
 Beds containing three types of tomatoes, two types of peppers, and a few mystery plants.

And last but not least, I have something in the works that needs to stay hush-hush, but I will definitely let ya'll know how it turns out soon!
