Good morning! August 1st! My beautiful grandmother, "Nana" is 99 years old today. We will be celebrating her birthday together as a family on Saturday. The photo below was taken a few months ago when we moved Nana to her new place.
Oh how we love our Nana! Happy Birthday Nana!!!! It is also my Aunt Claylene's birthday. As well as my Mom's dear friend Kay. I am thinking of them today as well.
We are sure having a cool spell here. This morning was actually chilly! Crazy for August 1!!
My garden is winding down. I have removed several things that have finished producing, and will be planning my Fall garden now. I harvested my first watermelon of the season. I didn't get too many, but boy are they sweet and juicy!!!
I am still making Maybelle Flowers for my afghan. I have bought various colors of yarn, and am making it in a DK weight. I bought a couple worsted weights specifically for their color. But, I was not happy with how chunky they turned out, so with those I am making something different. I did my first two squares yesterday. I am thinking I will do a pillow with these.
I made an ear warmer while out on the boat last weekend. I made it with one of the DK weights, in a soft aqua. I adore the color. But, this would be better suited for this time of year, and in my opinion, not substantial enough in weight for an ear warmer. But very pretty for a hair accessory.
I am working on building my inventory for holiday sales. I am taking orders now.
Oh...one last thing. Have you gotten one of these green crinkle hoses? I LOVE it!!! They are shorter than a standard hose, but when on, it lengthens quite a bit. I love the shut off valve on it, and the ability to set it to a fine spray. It is one of my favorite new toys. I come from a family of hosers! We love to hose down!!!
