Well, yes, it has been busy. But, I've got to admit that I have had time for more than one nap on my new chaise lounge. It's even more tempting now that I have all my outdoor pot planting done. I've had this "baker's rack" for a couple years, but this is the first it looks close to what I wanted it to. The last couple years it was more of a "catch all" for garden and grill equipment. I like it this way MUCH BETTER!

And I've gotten my little herb spot a little more complete now, too: mint (yet to appear), rosemary, oregano, a bay bush with basil growing beneath it, dill, marjoram, thyme, chives, and fennel. (I've got my parsley surrounding some flowers on the patio out of the afternoon sun so they stay a bit cooler.)

I haven't forgotten the knitting and quilting, though. I'm still working on my granddaughter's sweater--it's almost done. When I just want to do some mindless knitting, though, I work on dishcloths.

And on the quilting front, I haven't done too much, but I did finish my first Irish chain block with Civil War fabric for a block exchange that I'm doing with some dear quilting friends.

And I'm hoping to get back to the blocks and that sweater VERY SOON!

Mary Lynn, I love the baker's rack!! Your garden is coming along so nicely. I've got a couple herbs planted, but we're still a little too cold at night.

Wishing you lots of time on the lounge chair!!
