Tomato plants

I have 9 tomato plants growing in my sunroom. They would not survive outside in our weather for sure. The poor things would need knitted sweaters to keep out the damp chill, and a raincoat to boot!! Now that would be a pretty picture.
Here are some closeups. The first is a large variety tomato.
The next one is the cherry variety. One plant has 28 tomatoes on it so far.
And.................TADA!!!!!! my first harvested tomato. It was so sweet. I am super pumped that my tomatoes are doing so well.

Been real busy

Just finished up some little girl's crocheted beanies for my Etsy site.

Also, started on my pumpkin hats to get them ready for the fall.

Destashing some of my rug wool. Listed a lot of that on Etsy as well. Here is a sneak peak.

Take a look, there just may be something that you like.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far.

Yeah, summer is here

Summer finally arrived to us this weekend in all her glory......... and it's about b____y time too. Spent a wonderful weekend at the cabin. Friday night, three of my sisters arrived to spend the night with me. Mom's birthday was earlier in the week and they had come out to celebrate with her.
She turned 83 on the 21st. We had a birthday cake and other treats at the long
term facility and invited the staff and the other residents to drop by. It was a nice afternoon.  Here are two of my sisters on the left side, mom in the center and me on the right side.

These are my sisters beachcombing. This is the beach where I find most of the seaglass that I use in my jewelry.

And here are my socks drying on a rock. I always manage to get caught by a rogue wave that fills my rubbers with sea water. That's half the fun of it.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far.
