Have you ever done this? I went on a garden tour hosted by our local Master Gardener's program this past weekend. We've gone before and the gardens are so inspiring--it's so interesting to see how everyone expresses themselves in their garden. I took my camera to capture the unique elements and great plant combinations of the gardens, but to my chagrin found that I had left the battery at home in the recharger! The houses on the tour were too far from home for me to return home and get the battery. I'll definitely check to be sure I have the battery next time or keep a spare in the case!
We did work in the garden a lot this weekend and when I wasn't gardening I was working on sampler appropriate to this time of year.
I bought this Brenda Gervais pattern about a year ago because of the sampler. I wasn't sure I'd like the muted colors. I've never worked with Weeks Dye Works threads before and at first it seemed like you couldn't tell the difference between the various colors, but they're growing on me and I really like the faded appearance.
