Summer Bounty

Fresh from the garden.
A great lunch of BLT's and melon.
Life is so good.

                 Another side benefit home made suet for
                 winter feeding the birds. Bacon grease and seed.
                  Pop in the freezer until needed.

Homemade low sodium Tomato Juice.

It take this to get 5 quarts of juice.
Plus a morning of work.
A nap after lunch and no studio time.
In the middle of winter it all seems worth it.
Just not right now.
Only 45 more to go.
That equals 8 days of no studio.
Keep telling self it is going to be good.
Must remember that August is harvest
and not complain.
The weather is simply great now
Something to be thankful for.
Thankful my DH helps with the juice.
Plus the house smells great with
a batch of green pepper soup simmering away.

Time out for a fabric check.

With the garden keeping me out of my studio
I had to take time to reconnect with fabric yesterday.
I played around with these colors
and made a mess but
it felt good. 

Love the color combination but I was rusty
around fabric after 2 weeks away.
Got my SAQA Journal and
got inspired again.
Loved Trisha Hassler's work.
That is so me.
I must finish the tomato's
 fast so I can reconnect.
OR maybe just go and buy
3 cases of Red Gold tomato juice.
I could get back in the studio faster.

Vistors from the sky.

18 geese showed up this morning on the pond.
                     They strutted around the yard nibbling grass.

                           This afternoon I went down to the studio
                           to play with some fabric and looked out the window.
                           Must have gotten hot out there.
                           Some of them found a shade tree to rest under.

The garden has gotten in the way of my creating
I will be glad when we are finished so I can
go back to hanging out in the studio again.
