I continued working on the front perennial garden and got it cleaned up as far as I had gone before, yay! Now I really have to get the stuff for the picket fence and get that up. That way I’ll know where I want to place all the different plants as some will be climbing the fence, others need to be where they can really stand out because they are tall, etc. (I have one hibiscus that is probably 8 feet tall. I had no idea it was going to get that big. Right now it sticks out like a sore thumb it is placed so poorly.
I’ve been working on a way to organize my machine embroidery and today I finally figured out, what I think, is going to be a great way and it is free (if you own a Mac). You can read about it in this blog (coming soon). I spent the afternoon getting what embroidery designs I had downloaded all organized. Now I’ll be able to download as many as I want and organize them as I get them. This is sooooooooo exciting for me!
In the evening, I looked through one of the embroidery sites and put all the designs I liked into a Wishlist. In their free designs alone I’ve found over 200 I would like to download. At just three a week it is going to take a long time to get them all.
Later in the evening my husband and I continued reading in the book on biological orchards. It is very interesting, however, there is so much to do correctly I’m feeling daunted. We really want our own fruit trees but I’m not sure we’re up to the upkeep of even a few of them.
Before I headed to bed, I spent about an hour working on the cross-stitch project. It is looking better and better the further I get along in the design. I’ve already used over twenty colors and that is not even half of them! Needless to say, it is going to be very colorful when finished, even though many of the colors are more subdued (which goes nicely with my decor).
