The hyssop is in bloom. The hummingbirds enjoy this little bush, and cleaning it up in the fall is a delight. It smells sweet and spicy.

First, even when he's fussing, I still think my toddler is adorable. He was running around before church, and did not want to get in the car, poor thing.
I purchased two more dresses from eShakti earlier in the summer. This is the Chelsea dress and comes in so many prints and colors. I love the green gingham. I have a watermelon colored dress cardigan that would have looked great with this, but it was just too hot. I have a pink headband on, and when I'm at home wearing this dress, I pair it with a pink and green floral apron. It is a lovely combination. You can't see it from the picture, but it has a wide waistband, and in the back is elasticized smocking. It is 100% cotton and so cool to wear. I wore it to church.

I finally finished cutting squares! All of this is flannel from saved burp cloths and receiving blankets, and each piece is meaningful to me. There isn't much of a pattern or color scheme since I had to work with what I had, but I'm satisfied. I have eleven columns stacked and ready for ironing, if necessary, and then I'll commence with stitching!
