Summer Days

The summer is quickly getting away from me and some things are falling to the wayside. Things like blogging, and weeding, and deadheading. But I have fit in a little stitching the last couple of weeks as I have fallen far behind on the Joyful World SAL.

Right now, I have kitted up, April, May, and July and am currently working on May and July on alternating days.

July in the Joyful World SAL

June is actually finished, but I haven't taken a good picture of it yet so that will be included in a future post. The August pattern has been printed but not kitted until I finish one of the above projects.

The months are rolling by and I'd better get working!

The summer has been rather mild after a very hot spell in the spring that started the growing season early. Currently, the summer phlox are blooming nicely, the lavender is bountiful, and some of the roses are getting a second flush of blooms.

The Generous Gardener
I've been walking, sometimes twice a day, to get my steps in. That does cut into my time, but I know I need to do it and I feel better when I do. We had a great 4th of July and Sunday we had our annual company picnic which I think will be the subject of another future post. Looks like I'm getting my subject matter lined out - now to follow up!

Your flowers are so pretty. I am headed to the lavender Festival in Sequim tomorrow. Earlier, they were afraid the lavender would be all done by the festival time. We will just have to see. Very nice stitching. I love the way Joyful World is coming out.

Glad to read a post by you Von. I am still loving the Joyful World SAL also.
I too walk almost daily. It eats up my time a bit, but is worth it!

Always lovely to hear from you, see your stitching and your flowers. Thanks.

So wonderful, your summer phlox. We are also having a mild and cool summer, not that terrible heat that we were having last year. And all the rain made the plants in the garden grow like mad. So everything still looks a bit wild.
Great that you could get some stitching in on your Joyful World pieces.
