Stitchery and a Garden Update


I've been working on some fall stitcheries..this one I just finished last night..all the stitching and beading is done....just have to cut it out and stitch the backing on it....its already padded..I tea and black walnut dyed the fabric..the neighbors probably thought I was a little nuts with large swatches of light brown fabric drying on the clothesline....I dyed quite a bit so would have alot to work with...the photo isn't the true colors..(.I'm having  trouble getting detail and focus with my little camera too....have to find the booklet on it and see if I can adjust the settings)...Rhonda at Primitive Stitches did have this one candle mat pattern with autumn leaves..I am also making a wall hanging and some tags for the fall....
.......
We were supposed to go to San Diego today to do a 3 unit escrow re key but last night the realtor called and said there was a problem in escrow so no work this morning.....that happens sometimes....the good news is there are 6 more jobs lined up starting on Friday.....and the above job will open up when the escrow gets worked out....this escrow job is for a new realtor which is also good news..we are praying we can get a few more accounts....work is slow for everyone..both realtors and contractors....yesterday, a locksmith called us wanting to know if we had any work..he had gotten laid off after working for the same locksmith company for 10 years, unfortunately we had to tell him no.....right now we are only working for about 3 or 4  realtors and could use a few more clients....most locksmiths won't drive long distances so we have the advantage..

Its getting warmer here but dry...never as humid as much of the company.....we've been eating yellow wax beans from the garden about every night...I am going to freeze some too....
The garden is doing well..the corn is taller than me now..and I am 5'6...the tomatoes are almost as tall.....wonderful what can grow in a urban back yard......we've been getting a few tomatoes..the flood will come a little later as we've had such a cool spring......
