RUG UPDATE AND GARDEN

 I've been on my knees every chance I got in between rain drops last week and this week we had beautiful sunshine and I finally finished digging the weeds in my vegetable garden and planted the whole thing with daylilies.
I've planted  rows on rows and planted them very close together between rows just so I wouldn't loose them. I plan to give some away next year and they will be much easier to dig up since they will not be big.


Not a very good picture but you can see the little stubs in the distance.  If I remember correctly, I have about 22 rows of lilies and around 10 lilies each row. I'm glad that job is done.

 As of now I no longer have a vegetable garden and will have to plant my veggies at the farm if I want some.



This is where I'm at on my rug. I have a loaf of homemade bread with a big bag of Robin Hood flour  but somehow I don't think that it fits there very well and  when I was putting my memories down I thought of home made bread but I should have drew my mom making bread. She made big batches of bread every day when I was young and I learned young to make bread.

Do you think that I should draw this scene with mom making bread. I could pull all those loops out and put another scene there. I'm not sure what to do. Help...


My misplaced bread and Robin Hood flour.  My dad bought Robin Hood flour by the 100 pound bag. An outdoor well with crank and bucket and some chickens and a rooster in our yard.



Monday was laundry day on the washboard and tub. There was always baby cloths on the line. We played Ally Hoop over the roof top with a rubber ball and I love to pick apples.


Me looking at the clouds and seeing all kind of amazing shapes, my one room school complete with sheep that would stray in the yard once in a while.


More scenes from my childhood.



My husband was going to the lighting store and bought me this energy efficient light  that shows the true colors of my wool when I hook at night. It takes 75 % less energy than the tri-light  bulb at the right. It works nicely for me.
Have a great weekend and stay safe and warm. I enjoy reading  your comments.   JB
