I know to those in the Midwest and the east summer has been hideous, but here it's been cold up until this week. And it's FINALLY warm, and I am loving the weather....it's allowed me to get in some gardening ....
My roses are in bloom!
The grapes are FULL of bunches (these are concord's....I tried to kill this vine and didn't succeed, so now I need to figure out what to do with tons and tons of concord grapes.....I'm thinking jelly!)
And this little renegade morning glory is creeping over the fence from the neighbors house. I have half a mind to pull the vine, but I love love love these beautiful blooms....
And I've even gotten some sewing done....I made this basket for my cousin who is due any day now!
I haven't been sewing much. I have been enjoying time with the wild toddler and the field trips that summer allows....we've been to the park, to Disneyland (she was a bit overwhelmed, but she's still young!) to the river (she LOVES it!!) and all over....I have been very very lucky with Chemo and I haven't had any of the nasty side effects they predicted I'd have (I haven't had any real side effects) and I still have a full head of hair (it's falling out...by the handful, but I had SO MUCH HAIR to start with that I still have a TON and I'm going on my 3rd round of chemo!) so I feel blessed and like I should take advantage of the time I am given. :) Unfortunately that means not much sewing and not much blogging. However, I am going to get comfy with my machine during nap time....I have four pair of black pants that need to be mended!! I also want to make little dresses for the punk!
