Just a quick post with no pictures!!  I just couldn't do it ~ after, I wrote this, I had to add some garden photos just to liven things up!! My Seattle kids have been here since July 3 and left on Monday ~ it has been a whirlwind of activity and it's amazing how quiet the house is now!!  Yesterday, I just listened to it! They were on a mission to do as much as possible in 9 days and we were right behind them for most of it!  We did opt out of a trip to Cedar Point on a 98 deg. day ~ how smart are we??!!! 

So I'm getting the house put back in order, laundry done, and back to the daily stuff of office work and gardening.  And I have new patterns to show you ~ patterns from MSHAW and I just got a shipment of patterns from Deanne Fitzpatrick ~ I love the work of both of these pattern designers.  As soon as I get my feet back on the ground, I will list them here on the blog and on my website, too!

I hope you're having a fabulous summer ~ it has been pretty hot in Ohio ~ cooler the last week but I hear the 90's are on the way!!  That 's it for today ~ more to follow!  And by the way, no hooking ~ I haven't hooked since the Kingwood hook-in ~ I need to get back to it! Have a great day wherever you are!

Love your garden pics! It is hard to do a post without photos.....we are such visual creatures! Hope you can get a little relief from the heat. After so long it just zaps us! Am looking forward to seeing those their designs.

There is a downside to living in the same town as Deanne - I am too close to the studio and I have no self control. Can't wait to see which patterns you bought.

I'm sure you had a whirlwind time with the Seattle bunch, but I bet the silence is good. At least that's how I feel when family leaves, but then again I'm not the party animal you are!
The nasturtium is very sweet. Do you eat the flowers?

Alice, my eyes flew open at the mention of Kingwood. I live in Kingwood, TX.

Your garden looks so inviting!
