Of course it is Thursday and I will not let this week pass by without an update on my CHS Primitive Stocking for Annemarie's SAL. Just a small amount of progress made. Once I start browsing through the Royal photos I get so inspired by the costumes that the cross-stitch gets pushed aside and I start sketching doll dress versions of the period gowns from the photos.
The rain held off for about an hour yesterday morning shortly after I had posted here. It was just long enough to fulfill one of my plans...to plant my tomatoes. Then the downpours came and there are little ponds all over the garden. I had worried that the tiny plants would be crushed, but all are standing up OK...10 Striped Romas and 6 Pineapple Heirlooms.
