Where have I been? Between working, gardening, and other chores, I haven't been doing much blog reading let alone actually posting. I'm not complaining, it's just that spring/summer is always a busy time. I missed this months WIPocalypse so todays post is another "catch up" post.
TUSal. I have managed to stitch a little as you will see below.
WIPocalypse. This is King Tut from Janlynn's Egyptian Pair. This is pretty much the only thing I have worked on since my last post. I have the border and back stitching left to do on this. However, I must have lost the instructions that came in the kit because I can't find where it says what colors and how many strands to use for the back stitching. I have sent an email to Janlynn and hopefully they will be able to help me. I think the kit is from 1998 but I'm not sure. If not, I'll probably just do my best at guessing.
My gardening has been taking a lot of my time. I have been getting a very nice harvest of purple hull peas, green beans, and cucumbers. My tomatoes are not doing so well. I am starting to suspect that I have some kind of tomato disease in my soil. Oh well. We got a whole bunch of rain that damaged my squash and zucchini plants but they were starting to come back. Then my chickens ran into the garden looking for bugs and just destroyed what was left. It was kind of funny to watch actually.
Speaking of my chickens, I could not be happier with "my girls". I have getting so many eggs that I have to give most of them away. That hasn't been too hard either! People go nuts over fresh yard eggs. I can't wait to hatch some chicks but I really don't need any right now. I must resist!
We went to the annual hibiscus sale and got a few more "exotic" hibiscus bushes. So hopefully I will have some pretty photos once they start blooming.
Ok that's all for now. I am going to try to get back to posting as normal but no promises.
