My new Pincushions

I was in a pincushion swap recently and here are my newest ones. In the front row are my little goodies from Jo in Texas, Liz in California and Angela in Indiana. The 2 little anime' cats in the top row are what I made to swap. Aren't they all so cute?!

The last of my salsa garden

We got way too many tomatoes, these 4 tiny peppers and zero onions. Aren't they pretty?
It was a fun first attempt at gardening.

American Doll patterns

Since I have granddaughters, I'm thinking ahead...maybe too far ahead, but someday, they may like American Girl dolls...or at least the knock-offs. Do any of you have these dolls? Do you make clothes for them? If you're interested, there are free doll clothes patterns at A G Playthings and they are nice. They are by American Girl, but the patterns are retired now. And did I mention that they are FREE? :o) I like the idea of American Girl much more than Barbie and the clothes are easier for me to make. Go check it out.

Is it really the end of summer?

It's getting cold enough that I'm thinking of kickin' on the furnace, the leaves are starting to turn colors and fall off the trees and I'm wearing a sweatshirt. Then, why do I want an ice cream cone so badly?!? LOL In just a little bit, I'm going to take my nephew with me to the store so that we can choose out our favorite ice cream, and maybe even splurge on a box of waffle cones. Can you say "Yum!!!"? Yeah, I thought so. :o)
