It's been a beautiful weekend!

Yesterday was very productive. I got my house cleaned up, laundry done, front deck cleaned off and organized, had a barbeque with some great friends and made duct tape dress forms with my friend Lydia.
Today has been so beautiful and finally NOT raining that I decided I could safely scrub and paint these old wire baskets that I've had for a while.
Had to take a wire brush to them as they were very rusted and then I spray painted them white with a rust blocking paint. I plan to sew up some burlap liners for them.  I think they are going to look very nice in my studio...
   We also got the rest of our garden planted. Yes we got a late start but I think it's gonna be alright.

Rodney found some neat colored carrot seeds and Abbi was excited to plant them...
 

Rodney's ankle is healing, as you can see he still has to wear a strong ankle brace on it, has metal supports on both sides....

William even came out to help plant...


Now we're off to another barbeque/ high school graduation celebration/ paintball party. The kids are going to have a blast!

Hope your weekend went well too!
Hugs!

Hi, I enjoy reading your blog(s)! I planted those exact carrots this year -- it's the first time I've tried growing carrots in about 30 years, because of limited space (1 carrot per seed just doesn't seem like a good return) and it always gets so darn hot here so early (Memphis) -- but the colors lured me in, and they seem to be doing fine. I hope to harvest some in about 2 or 3 weeks (hopefully we won't shoot up into the 90's much before then).

Oh, Yesssss! Those baskets are going to be lovely on display! I can imagine them filled with fibers and fabrics -- so pretty!!!
Spent today doing a bit of gardening. We're far behind because of weather too. It felt so good to be outdoors mucking around! I'll sleep well tonight! Hugs, Terri xoxo
