September's TUSAL

Here's my monthly TUSAL photo. It may not seem like I'm adding much each month but I am. Or at least I am adding as much as I can. Ha ha ha!

I found these in my back yard. We are seriously hurting for rain. We aren't even sure we are going to be able to plant a fall garden this year. If we do, we will pretty much have to water it every single day which means we should try to keep it as a small garden. I at least need to plant some greens (collards, mustard, turnip, and dandelion) for my iguana.

My Feathered Children

As promised, here are my chicks! They are growing up so fast. They will be 6 weeks old this Tuesday.

And of course, I had to include a photo of my boys. They almost seem to pose for the camera. Hee hee!

Frogs and Flowers

My froggy is starting to get his arms and legs. I think this is the only thing I have worked on this week and it even then, it was for 2 days. I'm not in a slump, I'm in a time crunch. I have only managed about an hour of free time a day and I have spent that doing laundry and other chores that have been neglected lately.

I have mentioned before that I bought some "exotic" hibiscus plants. I had almost given up on some of them. The heat and drought was making it hard on them and they weren't blooming. Well, we finally got a little rain and a small break from the heat and we have gotten a few more blooms. This is "Red Planet". The blooms are huge! They are around 10 inches in diameter! They are really pretty.

And I love this one! This is "Key Largo". The photo doesn't do it justice. It is actually purple with an orangy-yellow around the outside.

I have photos of my chicks coming soon. :)

I went ahead and signed up for Measi's 2012 WIPocalypse. I noticed that I have way too many starts/WIPs and not near enough finishes. I know that's my fault but I'm having fun starting new things so shut up! Ha ha! I have a few projects that I *think* I could finish if I really tried as well as a few smaller ones that I *know* I could finish. So now I guess I need to start working on my WIP list.

Another New Start

I started another new project. I know, I'm crazy! I have 1 more project that I want to start and then I'll stop for a while. Maybe. Hee hee! Anyway, this is Crescent Moon Dragon by Joan Elliott. I got my chart from her Bewitching Cross Stitch book.

More Froggy Progress

It's starting to look like a frog! So cute! I've been picking this up in between projects and I am enjoying it so far.

My stitching progress has been slow due to being super busy all the time. But any progress is progress and that's good enough for me.

Chatelaine Progress and Chickies

My chicks are growing!

This is my progress on Chatelaine's Egyptian Garden. I so need a stand to put the scroll rods on for this one. I have a cheap one somewhere that I'll pull out and try next time.
