Our tomatoes are really coming in right now and they are beautiful, hardly any splitting. Tracy was probably right about the shade helping them during the heat of the summer. Here are a few pictures using our tomatoes....

I did a facing (I think that's the proper name) for the little gowns instead of bias tape......MUCH BETTER. In fact, I've done a 2nd one and took pictures as I worked. I'll post a little tutorial in a few days.

A few questions have been asked of me over the last few weeks. With the craziness of life, I haven't answered them here on the blog. So...here it goes:
Pattern for the little blue gown set: It is from a hard copy that I got from a Threads of Love person. It's terribly written actually. I have kind of made up my own way of doing it. However, if any of you want it I'll be glad to mail it to you.
Sock hats: It appears that she cut the cuff off the socks and with fine crochet thread (or at least something thicker than regular thread) gathered the cut edge to make the little ball on the top of the hat.
Jellyfish Sting: I'm the one that was stung. That's how I know the windex works!

Navarre Beach, FL is our beach destination of choice. I've been going every summer since 1982, I think. As a child, we spent nearly the entire summer down there. In the fall of 2003, we bought a condo.....just in time for the massive destruction of hurricanes Ivan and Dennis only 9 months apart. Early October is our favorite time down there. Unfortunately, with Hannah in kindergarten this year, we may not make a trip.
Despite the seaweed and jellyfish, we had a great time. Tip for jellyfish stings: WINDEX. It works amazingly.
Anyway....here are a few fun pics of our fun week.

Last Saturday, my sister and niece were in a car wreck barely escaping a head-on collision. Thankfully, my niece suffered only minor injuries that included a bumped head, black eye, and sore hips from the seatbelt. Unfortunately, though, my sister broker her femur and bruised her lungs pretty badly. She got out of the hospital on Thursday and is recovering at my mom and dad's house.

That's my new motto.....Slow and Steady
I finally have a little gown set completed. Two more are in the works.
The neckline gave me fits, as usual. I have something different planned for the other 2 sets.
