Hyssop in Bloom

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.

Another eShakti Dress

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.

Blueberry Pie

It takes me all day to bake a pie.  It always has.  They are worth the time and effort, though.

In My Kitchen at Suppertime

Making supper with a toddler around has never been easy for me.  Maybe it's a breeze for some, but not for me.  A cup of chamomile tea always helps to steady my nerves.

Quilt in Progress

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!
