The Best Summer for a Vegetable Garden

Weeks of hot temperatures and no rain gave the Pacific Northwest the best growing conditions for a vegetable garden. I decided last winter, while having dinner with my 80 year old Uncle, to clear, rake and plant my 1/4 acre empty city lot into a garden. We hauled miles of blackberry vines and tons of gifted rocks and debris away. Without the use of any fertilizers, or even organic compost, and no pesticides...yep, so that leaves water, dirt and sun, we have a harvest beyond expectations. Enjoy this pictures!

I planted 4 fruit trees along one side fence...these are for now until the tree gets a little bigger.

I didn't plant the sunflower. It is simply a lovely volunteer.

Duct Tape Creativity!

I really didn't know what to expect when my DD's BF offered to make me a duct tape bag! I had heard about the prom contest, and had seen a few pics of some unfortunates affixed to walls with this stuff, but when the array of colors was presented to me, I was curious about what would become of those rolls. Ta Da! Isn't this the most amazing piece of duct tape art? The flaps are interchangeable and the design includes pockets...several of them! This is his own design. He has made many and no two are alike. Many thanks, Sam...It's fabulous.

Lopez Island, July 4th

A little late in posting these pictures...but I thought I would do so anyway. It's a good break from LilyandEbony and AllegroFabrics. We had a great time on Lopez Island. The weather was perfect, and has been here in the Northwest for weeks and weeks. No rain at all. It's well deserved after what we all went through last winter!

And the Parade says it all about this wonderful community.

Whitney is living here for the summer while she interns for Sound Watch...and enjoys her time with the Orca Whales.

Petites Marines by LilyandEbony

Under the shadow of Sacre Coeur in Paris lies the lively fabric sellers quarter. When I was visiting there last summer I found this fabulous piece of fabric flapping in the breeze. It is made in France, all cotton, and a little heavier than our regular quilting weight goods. I paired it with a no wrinkle white faux linen for the pants, a cute royal blue nautical stripe for trim and ruffle and yards of bright white rope piping. The peasant blouse is made of summer weight gauze with elastic shirring at the neck and sleeves. Matching hairbows included. Can also be worn without the blouse under. Double anchor buttons at the straps.

This custom set includes the tunic length top, the elastic waist pants, the peasant blouse and the hairbow pair. Custom made by LilyandEbony in sizes 2-6. Sewn in labels.
Each item is handmade. Attention is given to selection of fabrics, colors and design. All seams are serge finished.
We live in a smoke free environment.
