the garden is coming along, have been enjoying lettuce, beets, radishes, and cukes.
the potatoes are not to be this year...darn i was so looking forward to garden spuds :(
otherwise i am very happy with 2013 growing season.

when i need mindless knitting i go to dish clothes.
as you can see my basket is filling up with all different kinds of dish clothes
in a variety of colors , shapes and patterns.
most of the dish clothes will be added to some christmas presents that i send around the country
to relatives.

caitlin trying on her dress that i finished this morning, it fits like a glove .
i am thrilled how it turned out as is caitlin !
buttons are a learning curve for me. I did the buttons on the bodice with my bernina 1020 until it got stuck in reverse...grrr !
the skirt i used my 440Q bernina and i struggled getting it just the way i wanted it. actually i never did, i will be fixing some button holes with some hand stitching.
any advice on how to make perfect button holes would be appreciated.
i need to make another dress for my other girl, erin !

i have been working full time the past several weeks and am unsure how long i will keep this schedule.
i must admit i have enjoyed what i have been doing at the hospital, getting use to our new computer system. 

we have had some hot, hot weather here ! and we have been having some rain too.
today is delightful, raining, low 70's - my kind of weather.
their is a nap on the agenda today for me.....
don't you just love naps on rainy afternoons :)

What a cute dress Eileen. Buttons are always the most "fiddley" item on a project for me. I have a Pfaff and it has an automatic buttonholer thank goodness, but it almost always "acts up". I'm always glad when the buttonholes are in. What a beautiful garden!!!!
