Hi farm sisters, Today I put up some tomatoes, They are growing good in our garden. We have avery small garden but the Lord Blesses us so much. I have shared some with some friends and family, too. We planted peppers also and they didn't do so well and the green beans didn't either. I don't know what we did wrong. We do not spray any thing and so far the bugs haven't taken over. We have had some ants but as soon as it rained, they were gone. I guess they just needed the moisture. Any way I froze the tomatoes for winter soup. I also had some bananas that were turning dark so I made a Banana cake for later.

Oh I mentioned we had started a new church, and some of the ladies wanted to know how it was going. Its going great, We had Our first Bible study Wednesday nignt.It was good to study the word of God. Our new Pastor won't be back from an earlier obligation until the 15 of August. That will be our first service. I can hardly wait. Let you know more later. Love all you Farmsisters. Farm Sister #1020 Juanita (Needy)

I am making a gift for a Farmgirl Friend. Bought the materials I needed tonight and can't
wait to start on it. My problem is that I always have many projects going at once. So, I
also just finished my Mail-Art and A pkg for my Secret Sis. So, two down and a zillion to
go but...it is my Mental Health Therapy and it works so well!

Hugs & Blessings,
Peggy

Marion in the Netherlands, I forgot to say how cool it is to have you participate! My husband and I got to visit Amsterdam in 1985 and loved it. I certainly would like to return and see more of your beautiful country. I will also check out your blog. Dianne in the Hudson Valley, NY

Peggy, you must be feeling better. Good to see you here.

Sharon, the tea towels are lovely. I'm back embroidering after a long break. I enjoy it a great deal. I'm doing roosters.

I am thinking of doing the Rose Garden Scarf in Mary Jane's stitching room book. It will be a challenge -- first to find the specialized yarn and then to read the pattern. But fall and football season are coming. I get a lot of handwork done while watching football with my husband. Suzanne

Hi Suzanne ~ I have some cute old transfers of roosters. Just may join you in an embroidery challenge. I'll show you mine, if you show me yours! When will you work on the sunbonnet project? You sound like a typical crafter with so many irons in the fire. What do people do when they don't craft, I wonder????????

Sharon, I have a special doll to finish and a wall hanging for my son. But I'm thinking the bonnet would be cute for my granddaughter, so I'll have to figure that out soon. Yes, I love my crafts. They keep me sane. I work all week with people and enjoy the creativity and sanity of crafting.

I'll try to figure out how to get a picture of the rooster to you when I finish. My have to do email, as I havne't figured out how to post one here. Suzanne

Hi, I finished a doll's body today in between watering gardens. It's so much fun to see the dolls start to come into being. Suzanne

Thanks Dianne :)Used to live not too far from Amsterdam, now live about 200 KM from it so don't visit it anymore. I sometimes miss strolling through the shops but then I think of ALL the hustle and bustle and am glad again :)

I just finished the cleaning so now have time to "play" again lol. Finished a swiffer cover ;) Will make another one. It turned out cute IMO lol.

Peggy, glad you are up and about -- keep getting better.

I have started doll's clothing. Am also knitting a dishcloth. I don't think I'm a very good knitter, but so far I've not dropped a stitch or added one (I'm great at adding stitches). People laughed very hard at the mittens I made in home ec, oh so many, many years ago, that I think I convinced myself I couldn't even do simple knitting -- you all convinced me otherwise. Thank you so much.

Suzanne...you would laugh out loud if you knew how many times I rip out even simple projects like wash clothes
(being the perfectionist that I am) but that is how we learn. Trial and error! And I have had lots of them!
Bravo on not dropping or adding stitches! Well, done Farmgirl!

Hugs,
Peggy

OK, What am I working on...hmmm, well let's see, I have a collection of sewing machine...22, which includes 2 sergers, and 2/3rd's of the machines are vintage machines...
I drug home yet another one a couple of weeks ago,,,it's still out in the garage...hiding...can't let the hubby see it, I told him I was on a 12-step program to get my off my sewing machine addiction...lol!
As for sewing,,,the only thing I have sewen in the past month is a goofy looking horse head to make a stick horse for my trailer and a hand full of yoyos....
Come on Winter...then I will be house bound with no excuses for not sewing! lol! or will I????? heeheehee!

Grace...my embroidery work is quite the opposite and so is my Plastic Canvas work. They look like
some toddler did it when you look on the back. The front might look pretty but the back is horrid!
I think God is always trying to cure me of my perfectionism but I was raised by a Perfectionist Mom
and Unfortunately I raised my kids the same way...and it is cruel to do that. It is a disease that
needs a 12 step-program all it's own.

Love and Hugs,
~peggy

I was taught to worry about the back of embroidery, something about an aunt's work that was equally beautiful on either side.

I have much more fun when I don't worry about it. And I think my front embroidery looks better when I don't worry so much. Suzanne

Suzanne...I admire embroidery that looks as beautiful on either side. I have tried and do well for awhile
and then...it's like I become a rebel and think...who really cares...it's the back for crying out loud! Like
I said...I think it is God trying to keep me humble! LOL

hahaha, I too use to be really ridgid when it cam eto making sure the back side of my cross stitch nearly mirrored the front....then my brain snapped & said "knock it of goofball" and ya know what...I did...hahaha!
Now I am not as fussy with the back side if it is not visable. Thank Goodness....lol!
I have gotten less ridgid in my years and have a better scence of humor about myself!
Ah Life is good!

Grace...you've got the right idea girl! Life is too short to take it and ourselves
too seriously. I'd rather laugh, love and live any day of the week.
