A great friend of ours has a gorgeous garden that he allows us to come raid every now and again.  Minus the mosquitoes, I'm in heaven!  Hubby and I went and did some picking last week and came home with beans, corn, beans, cucumbers and more beans. 
Saturday morning I was up early and busy with beans.

Some people put pies on their windowsills.  I put beans!  :)

Stay tuned for this weekend's garden project.

I came home from work tonight to homemade baked sub sandwiches, pups fed and dishes done. 

How lucky of a lady am I?!! 

I love being married to that man!!

   I received these adorable flannel blocks a while back from Loft Creations.  After 3 foot surgeries and a wedding, I am back in business on my NEW sewing machine (more on that later) and this is the first of many Project Linus blankets to be donated made from the blocks.
   I have shared the blocks with my mom and grandma to also make donation blankets for Project Linus.

The Project Linus Mission

Project Linus is comprised of hundreds of local chapters and thousands of volunteers across the United States. Each volunteer and local chapter all work together to help us achieve our mission which is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers."
Together we have distributed over three million blankets to children in need since our inception in 1995.

Thank you to Loft Creations for your fun idea and donation! 

Have a great day!
