I promised to update you on my badge progress, so here ’tis:
I’ve received the first level badge in Aprons and Intermediate level badges for both Crochet and Embroidery. As soon as I find my camera in the midst of this packing, I’ll be submitting my photos for Tatting (lace making, not tattoos). I’ll have to find five people to teach crochet to if I want to go for Expert, so I’m not sure that’s gonna happen. It will be a month before I can work on any new levels or badges. (Update: you gotta click on Speck’s badges in the comments – they are amazing and she made them for me!)
In further updates, our veggie garden is alive, surprisingly, given the weather this June. Unfortunately, the yellow cucumbers didn’t make it through the cold snap. The tomato plants are growing, if not sprouting tomatoes, and the pepper plants seem to be getting taller. The odd experiment, our four corn stalks in a planter, do seem to be growing taller and thicker, but once we get the planter at the new place and against a wall for support, I think it will do better. We still need to get the pumpkin seeds in – hope that we haven’t missed the window of opportunity.
I’m still working up my recipes for the contests, so nothing to report on that front.
We now return you to your regular scheduled and interesting programming….
