Purse Making and Garden Pics!

Here are a few more creations that I've been working on.
I LOVE anything John Deere so when I saw this fabric I knew I had to have it. Not so sure that I really like the other green fabric that I paired with it but I guess it will do.
The other purse is all about sunflowers. One of my favorite flowers paired with one of my favorite colors ~brown. (Weird I know but hey brown goes with everything and has so many shades that are great for decorating.)

Other happenings:
This past Friday & Saturday was our annual yard sale. As usual we had way too much stuff. It's amazing how much *stuff* you can accumulate in a years worth of time. The weather was wonderful and we all did good with our sales.
Now it's time to catch up on housework, garden work and more.
Here are a few pics from the garden this morning.
Everything is doing really well so far. 
The zucchini is blooming & growing...
and I see baby crookneck squash galore.
I found the first tiny tomatoes
as well as blooming pepper plants.

I can't wait for it all to grow. I'm totally out of homemade spaghetti sauce & it kills me to have to pay the price of store bought, not to mention that homemade tastes so much better.
I am also looking forward to making some hot pepper mustard out of those peppers.
