Summer finale!

 As the summer draws to a close,
I have some progress to share.
Farm Girl Finery,
designed by Kim Diehl,
is a flimsy,

Last summer I signed up for Primitive Gatherings BOW, Sunflower Gatherings.  As the packages started arriving, it became obvious to me I had bit off more than I could chew.  
Finally, this summer, I have my abbreviated version pieced.

I love anything with pumpkins!
My granddaughter helped me plant a garden this summer 
and some of the only survivors are the pumpkins!

Pesky chipmunks feasted on my carrots, green beans and spinach.
They even ate the jalapeno pepper plant.
I think they snickered at me while I weeded and watered my 'organic' garden.
It was entertaining to watch a row of carrots disappear each night.

We will be heading home soon, so I know this is all the progress I will make on the UFOs and WIPs I brought up with me. Not bad, 3 out of 5 completed.  
Hope you all had a great summer.
Now for fall...
my favorite time of year!
