It's been a little while since my last post. Things have been busy here with weed pulling and mulching our flower beds. I must say we had let that part of our yard kinda go crazy since I got pregnant with Silas...so it's been about three years since we really did a good job of it. It's also been raining a lot so working out in the yard has been a mad dash between rain drops. We still have about 54 bags of mulch sitting in our driveway out of the 84 we purchased. It's been great fun for Silas though he's enjoyed playing in the mulch....we keep trying to convince him that the sand box the neighbors gave him is much more fun.
I did manage to finish a project for myself too. This morning I put the final touches of walnut stain to my "Country Sampler Sewing Pouch" (kit by Stacy Nash). I love the way it turned out....my camera did a okay job at taking photos but really I think it looks much better in person. I really need a new camera I'm just not happy with the five year old Nikon Coolpix. I've been told that it's most likely worn out....let's face it I've taken thousands of photos with it. The last photo is from my iPhone using the Instagram app. I must say it turned out nicely and I used one of their filters on the photo so maybe I just need to use my iPhone from now on....LOL.
Well I guess that's about it for now...I know not very exciting but just think the next time you visit I'll have some great swap stuff to show you. I can't wait to show you what I made and what I received as well. I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy. :0)
