Summer has begun!

It's here! It's official! In my bubble anyway..... Summer has arrived!
Look what our family has been doing!

This is our eclectic container garden.

It is growing like a weed,
oh wait that might just be a weed!

I'll add a couple more shots......

And now for a tour.......

Formerly a Hot Tub, now a Home for Tomatoes, celery, carrots,

bunching onions, and swiss chard.....

Our brand New Garden shed!

As soon as we purchase Compost Worms
we will officially be "Worm Ranchers"

We told Jordan she gets to name our new pets!

Yummy! broccoli, onions, carrots, beets, cucumbers, I can't wait!

We have been so busy with this project this spring! I think I have finally gone over the excersize curve. Two weeks ago every muscle I formerly owned in life was SCREAMING BLOODY MURDER.....

Today I can report I feel great and the pains are just minor annoyances, it pays to stay in shape! You would think that I would remember this during the winter when I turn into a bear and hibernate...... next year.... gosh I hope you will all remind me of this brilliant piece of information!

Now on to the important business of Crochet!

Look at this wonderful piece of ART!

This is an afghan made by one of our members for her relatives in Poland. As the story goes she was doing some geneology a few years ago that ended with her and her husband showing up at a small house in the countryside of Poland announcing that they were "family"!

They were welcomed with open arms and she came home with this vision. Rows of crops, bright red poppies, strawberries, flowers, a community church, and her cousins house all made it into her view of her trip to Poland. This will be boxed up and sent to her realtives very soon preceeding her return visit this July. I am sure her family will be astounded with her creativity and love her even more that they did before! Great Job Patty! I am so proud of you!

Speaking of Freeform ( yes the afghan is freeform just an idea that turned into a something, amazing huh? ) Our current project for "Freeform Scrumble Monday" is what we are calling "Purple Haze" we are working in all that is purple! Please come and join us if you can.....

$5 per person for rent.......

This once a month activity is a wonderful chance to share and learn with other crocheters. Generally the way we conduct this activity is that we have everyone begin to crochet, every 15 minutes you hand the piece you are working on to the person next to you for them to work on for 15 minutes, and so on. At the end of the evening you take with you the piece you began and it is simply amazing how beautiful the pieces have become! Mine is going to be a pillow top......... for someone who loves purple!

Our busy little group is still meeting every week on Wednesday as usual, we are also going once a month to the Silverdale Farmers Market, on the FOURTH Tuesday ( April - September), from 11:00 to 4:00 we will have a tent and chairs, so please come and sit for a minute and see what your group has been up to!

Well that is it for now, I hope you enjoy the photos! Carry on fellow hookers *wink*
