Took doggie daddy and lil doggie,, to go kayaking on Bass Lake,,,
Ginger was in her cute life vest... which by the way works great,,, especially after she decided to jump into the lake from the kayak! lol!

Playing Hooky Again....

1 comment:
One of the nice things about being retired,,, is you can play Hooky any and every day you want to...
So we did,,,
Since Yosemite National Park is just 45 min up the road we took the dog and headed up there to get out of the 100+ heat...
 we stopped off at Look Out Point... you can see the famous 'BridalVeil Falls in the back ground as well as Half Dome mountain...
 Ginger was happy to be along for the ride....
We stopped off in Wawonna Valley to enjoy the creeks and wildflowers...
All in all, it was a good day to play hooky!

Melting Kat and Hollyhocks...

2 comments:
It is soooo hot today,,, my poor cat is melting... lol!
poor 'mamamoo'... she is slowly melting on the chair,,, we are now in the 100's degree weather.. oh joy!

Last year a friend let me dig up a couple of Hollyhock seedlings,,, one survived the winter and this is what it did,,, mind you, it was only 2ft tall when I transplanted it.

as for the Flamingo,,, it loves it's location.... it scares the quail away... lol!

And More Aprons....

No comments:
I had some down time,, while the new flooring was being installed,,, so I stitched up 3 more aprons..
 unfortunately the true colors are a bit washed out,,,
 this one is more of a teal/purple and rust color... the floral part is a giant pocket, stitched down the middles and a small hankie pocket  is on the one side...
this one is a combination or rose and burgundy,,, again, washed out photo.... I trimmed the little pocket with pink ball fringe...
and as always, yoyos to trim the waist band...
I love using up scraps  of fabric...

2 comments:
Aprons are popping up everywhere in my sewing room..
I was able to get 3 more completed yesterday...
Sewing is great therapy...
 got to use up some fabric scraps from the cobbler aprons that I stitched up...
 I make really long ties and embellish with yoyos....
 I love being able to use up fabric bits...
I used 3 different fabrics to make this full/wide pocketed apron...with a hankie pocket on the large pocket...
I also finished up another cobbler apron and 2 repurposed aprons last week...
 my cobbler apron,,, luv the full pockets...
 I made this sweet hostess apron from a pair of sheer cafe' curtains...
and this fun one use to be a pillow case...
Gotta love repurposing....
