Planting, Ideas

Man the week has flown by. I've been busy working on the yard and Laundry! I  really think my life since having kids as been nothing but doing Laundry. It seems to never get caught up and when it does.... wait  few days and some one dumps an overflowing load in the hamper...... (sigh)

 The up side of doing it this week was I got to hang it outside. I love the smell of  laundry when it's been outside drying... it just has a different smell, And it feels different too!

Flower beds are looking good... I have an Iris with a bud on it! (Actually I found a second this morning) Now if I could remember what color it was in that area?

It's also been a good time, while planting to running things through the head. I have been working on that dress I gave you a sneak peak at a few post back.  It's a coming along pretty good.  I haven't decided if I like straps or not yet... maybe narrower..... But I am liking where it's going.

I've made a few handles for bags. Yes not all the handles are recycled belts, but I do like using them. Most of my handles are made from upholstery fabric seamed together and top stitched where needed.  I have also used some of the webbing  material as handles that you find at the fabric store. It's all a matter of color, or prints and  what seems to going together.

 So I hope you have a greet weekend.....


  1. I agree about letting your laundry hang outside. Nothing like it. Can't wait to buy a house so I can do it again.

  2. Yep.... nothing like hanging laundry outside. Especially sheets and blankets. We sleep so soundly on fresh 'outdoor' sheets. The dress is looking good! Hope you have a great weekend too.

  3. I love outdoor clothes drying! I do it sometimes, but my mom did it all the time when I was a kid...that brings back some good memories.

  4. I think what I'm finding is I want to do more clothing designing at this time of year... for some reason, being out side I am just getting motivated towards that. I can't wait to see how this dress winds up I have another waiting to take to the dummy!
