This past weekend we travelled to Moncton, NB for our niece’s wedding. It was outside at a a garden and The mosquitoes were a bit of a problem. They had a table of bug sprays, lol. It was a lovely ceremony though, and short, after which we moved inside to the tent which was great.
My sons and daughter also came so it was a nice little reunion. We met at the splash pad in the afternoon for a little fun with our grandson, Ollie.
My husbands happy place.
Some of you may remember that I started crossfit (on an extremely basic level) about 3 months ago. Sticking to it hasn’t been hard because the workouts are always different and fun and I’m seeing huge improvements. This morning, I saw my doctor and she adjusted my blood pressure medication because it’s dropped so much since I started.
The only sewing I’ve done recently are these little zipper bags that are made from vinyl lined fabric which I’ll be using on our trip.
That’s a mug rug on the bottom.
They’ll come in handy for little snacks or for keeping track of pill packs and small items.
Today, after my lunch, I took out a piece of randomly painted canvas and added some free hand flowers and the black screen print.
I’m making a couple of very simple luggage tags. This is the front and back view with vinyl on the front. I’m going to do a zigzag stitch around three sides and add heavy elastic.
This is another double stranded crocheted ripple afghan that I just finished. They are so fun I wish I could do more!
Along with all that, I’m trying to keep up with the garden and use what I can. Yesterday, I harvested a few beans, peas, tomatoes and the yellow zucchini. I managed to use most of the zucchini.
I’m hoping a friend can use some while we’re away and not too much gets wasted. My scarlet runner beans are just getting going. I have a little rhubarb I’d like to pick and freeze and I’d like to put in lettuce seeds for the fall. We’ll see if time permits.
