Busy, busy, busy

I may not have been doing much sewing the last day or two, but I have been very busy.  First, I moved some stuff around in my container garden. I needed to put down some garden cloth to keep the weeds & bugs at bay.  That meant moving everything. It looks much better now.

I have two Early Girl tomato plants, two Big Boys, and one cherry tomato plant. I have one red bell pepper plant, six pots of Basil, and three of Thyme. I also have Tarragon, Oregano, Marjoram, Thai Basil, Rosemary, Sage, Mint, Chives and Parsley. I put marigolds in the garden because the aphids prefer them to the tomatoes. There are also two window boxes filled with lettuce. There is also a big planter filled with Nasturtiums.

I did some research on airfare to St Louis for Quintessential Quilt 2013 in October. It's still a bit too early to buy tickets, but I did make my hotel reservation.

I've been watching Wimbledon, and what a tournament! Seven former #1 players in the world were all knocked out by the second round!

I did finish the Spools Quilt, and got the backing ready. It is now packed and ready to go to Chris for quilting and magic.

The house is clean, the dishes and laundry are done. The week's menus have been planned and the groceries and errands have been done, the bills are paid and everything is entered into the computer.

NOW I can go have fun in the sewing studio!  w00t!

Isn't Wimbledon amazing! Can't believe there are only 2 top seeds left in the mens.

Your container garden looks great. I planted nasturtiums this year for salads. Not sure if my husband will believe that he can eat them :) Have a great holiday week.
