deja vu

back when my daughter was a little girl, I used to make most of her clothes

in the 1980s these patterns were available and I used a lot of them to make play clothes, bathing suits and dresses

this one is generically "kid", so I will be using it to make things for Mr Cute!

when my sister was here last weekend, she brought me some lovely orange fleece

Mr. Cute will get a pair of orange sweat pants soon!

my daughter's garden is producing a bumper crop of eggplant

she gave us some to bring home

so the DH and I created this lovely Eggplant Lasagna

and it was wonderful!

if you'd like to try making one of your own, the recipe is  Here

beside that lovely orange fleece, over the weekend my sister brought me peaches
almost 40 pounds of peaches

the agreement was that she would provide the peaches, we would provide the sugar and the labor and my dad would get some fruit for the winter

yesterday morning we put up peaches

we did hold out a few of them to eat fresh, and they are quite tasty

beading on this project is all done

the picture isn't great, but you can kind of see the texture at the top of the piece

now on to the backing and the chain and finishing

 the work continues on the wall hanging

love this pair of shoes!

and the top third of the "Project which cannot be named" is complete

looking good

time to get to work --- laundry is running!
