|The garden is finally coming along after an extremely wet spring. This is the second year for the asparagus, so no picking until next season, although it was very tempting. We did pick a bunch of rhubarb and had enough to share with Mom and Dad too.|
|We also celebrated a milestone birthday in our family the beginning of the month. My Mom turned 70 this year, and the whole family celebrated with her at a quaint little restaurant near Cowan Lake. We also celebrated my nephew Christian's 16th Birthday this month. Hard to believe that he's already 16, and will be a sophomore at the Dayton Regional STEM School this fall. He spent until the 8th grade being homeschooled, and his younger brother Cavanaugh and sister Annika are still homeschooled by my sister-in-law Loa.|
|Zinnias are just beginning to bloom, but I love them for cutting and they remind me of my Gram!|
|Last week when it was so hot, even the dogs were not very motivated to move from the front porch!|
|I've also been wanting to do a black and tan rug using denim, and finally got around to it with the same mixed warp as in the previous photos. You'll also notice that on this rug I also used a temple. That's the wooden tool that spans the rug and keeps the outside edges stretched. Hilary at Crazy as a Loom uses a temple, and I had a couple but really never gave it a try. Well now I am won over, and will keep using the temple, especially on the denim rugs! Thanks Miss Hilary!!!!|
Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville Pennsylvannia. We made the trip in for my cousin's wedding, and took the opportunity to make a little sidetrip.
|We even cleaned up for Kurt and Lyndsay's wedding!!!! What a great time of celebration with them. Will share photos of the happy couple in an upcoming post!|
Well, that gets things caught up a bit. Hope everyone is having a productive and enjoyable summer!!!!
