How things grow while you’re away…

Good gravy! We’re gone for one week and the garden goes nuts!


We can’t even remember what kind of squash that is on the right, but I guess we’ll soon find out, eh?! 

SF was glorious. Another trip where I had too much fun to take many pictures. The cool, foggy weather was just what we needed, for as fate would have it, we missed a crazy hot and sticky week in Wisconsin! Sausalito is a wonderful town, and though I still believe we made the right move to leave when we did, I’ll always love coming back.

I did manage to snap some pics of my old stomping ground, Once Around. I had the extreme fortune to work here for almost 5 years, working my way up to sewing manager. It was by far the best job I’ve ever had. Who doesn’t love getting paid to shop for fabric? Alas, Once Around will be closing its doors on August 1st. Though my dream is to someday open a craft shop as happy as this one, that would be a huge feat…


The girls and I decided to bring home some souvenirs…


Fabric close up! The left pile is all quilting cotton. The right is a mix of canvas, denim, voile, and laminated cotton. 


And now we’re back, and baffled by how much a garden can grow in one week. Marin’s sunflowers are now about 8ft tall.


And the veggies we planted late are really catching up!


Oh, and I think these ladies missed us…
