Summer Fun!

I've been creating things like crazy lately. So much I made a mosaic to show it all. Most of it had been made for my Etsy store. with the exception of my new green sheep  hook for my spinning wheel. I geeked out too making all the HP stuff. but I love it!
Here's the links to the photos if you're interested.
1. green sheep, 2. sheepy hook, 3. dragon stitch markers, 4. yellow and black, 5. my fave colors, 6. ravenclaw, 7. stitch markers, 8. slytherin, 9. bronze and blue, 10. gryffindor, 11. hogwarts, 12. top of yarnlet bag, 13. needle/hook roll, 14. pretty toile, 15. tall flowers, 16. small yarnlet
 Today I went to Home Depot and got some stuff to make myself a  comb and hackle! I'm so excited to do that. Now I've just got to find someone with a drill press so I can drill the holes. Then I'll be processing fiber like a champ. Now all I've got to do is make a diz.
that's not all my Garden has exploded!
See this is the right half.  My zucchini, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, beans, peas, a few tomato plants and, I was hoping, some peppers but I don't think they're going to do well this year.
This is the first year I planted carrots and radishes. the radishes are doing well and I'm not sure when I'm supposed to harvest the carrots, they don't look ready yet. we'll have to wait and see. 
and the Left half that's my lettuce, onions some garlic (i hope) and more tomatoes and cucumbers.
What you don't see is the watermelon and pumpkin and corn. they're up further past the main halves. I also have a pot of mint (just started) and a pepper out by the porch. But I can't remember if it's a hot pepper or regular bell.  I was hoping to can some salsa this year. I may need to stop at the store and get a jalapeno plant. inside i have some lemon balm in water trying to get roots, and dill, basil from last year and hopefully some cilantro.
with all the rain we've had the garden has been doing well and gone a little crazy. I've gotten some radishes and a few zucchini and onions so far. the cukes are almost ready. I'm hoping the tomatoes come in this year. they never did last year.
so we're surrounded by green things right now. Not that we mind at all!
ok well I've got laundry to do. (if only that was fun)

I've been busy!

I've been keeping up with my HPKCHC group on ravelry and my job is to do the CRR (common room recaps) for those who are away. so I'm usually found on the Gryffindor House Cuppers blog doing the CRR's. But I figure I should update my blog more often.. so I wanted to stop in and say HEY! 
I have been taking a photos though for my project365 group on ravelry. So I wanted to share what I've been doing... Here's the photos from the last 36 days. At the beginning of June we went to WI to visit with my family and we stayed for a week and a half. While we were there, my Sister and I  had a Ravelry meet up in Milwaukee with 2 other ravelers it was a lot of fun. When we got home it got really hot and the girls have been playing in the pool a lot, trying to stay cool. My garden is going well and I'm glad for that. I'm starting to get my first few veggies. which is always exciting! Life is a little crazy, my DH has started school and I'm getting ready for home school next year.
Here's the links to all the photos if you want to know more about what I did the past month or so. I've got all the photos with little blurbs about what they are.. go check them out!
