So much to do and so little time!
Now that I’m on summer break I’ve been trying to get as much as I can done before I’m back to college in august. I’ve successfully completed all my clothes mending and alterations and am now working on my business.
I always have a project bag and craft pouch/purse with me and the black and white one you see there is my favorite because it’s cute and has handles. ☺ I’ve never used the purse that came with it though because it’s flat and doesn’t zip all the way. While finishing my quilt yesterday I had a light bulb moment. I said “Zu you idiot, you can sew! Fix the bloody purse!”
So I boxed the bottom and it can now stand up while holding all my crochet hooks and supplies. I also stitched the top left corner so the zipper can be pulled right to the end. I’m a happy camper with a matching and usable set now! 😀
On the business side of things I’m working on a new sun hat crochet pattern and hope to have it released sometime next week. Feels good to be crocheting again!
I have an aloe plant that I keep in my kitchen window, and over the past month it has turned red. I thought it was pretty but looked it up online to see if it was a good or bad thing. Apparently it’s bad, my poor aloe was sun burnt. I didn’t even know that could happen! I took my burnt aloe out of direct sunlight in the morning, and by night fall it had already started to turn back to green. A couple of days later and it’s almost completely back to normal! It’s amazing how fast it’s happened and I’m sooo glad I didn’t kill my aloe.
I’m also keeping a close eye on my other plants and all seem fine except my slenderette bean plant with wind and cold damage. Looks like I’ll be pulling it up and planting asparagus instead. The Japanese Maple hasn’t grown since I bought it a couple months ago, so that’s another one I’m worried about.
My beets, cilantro, carrots, 2 types of lettuce, basil, Swiss chard, spinach, mustard greens, jalapeño peppers, sugar snap peas, mint, 2 types of fuchsias, chili peppers, parsley, thyme, lavender, lemon balm, radishes, coleus, potatoes, nasturtiums, lilies, morning glorys, italian firs, snapdragons, poppies, sweet peas, kale and geraniums are all growing well. I’m still waiting on 4 or 5 other pepper plant varieties and various flowers to sprout. There are a few mystery plants as well that I never labelled and forgot what they were, so I will be pleasantly surprised by those in due time. Once I start something I just dive right on in. Lol
Now, back to work! ☺☺
