New Towels and More Garden

I just listed these 3 black kitten dish towels...I had a fun time making them and they are now in my Etsy shop.....Sweet Home Stitchery..... The pattern is from Aunt Martha, a vintage inspired pattern..the towels have a green/yellow stripe and have a hanging loop...... I haven't stitched very much but am stitching a special order for a have another special order in the near future....didn't realize it at the time, but the fig tree outside our window cast a shadow which didn't show up until I posted the photo....these are very nice towels...a nice weight and iron like a lint!

Our weather has been warm, in the high 80s and low 90s.......

the tomatoes we grew in pots are doing well and are loaded with green tomatoes.....I took these photos during the solar eclipse.....
Early this morning, we sprayed the ground around the beds for anticipation of  lining the area with grass mats....Alan added solar lights to the beds too.
we're also re thinking our lawn as the water bill continues to rise.....haven't decided what to do yet......talking to our neighbors, evidently everyone's water bills are going up.....our water district has a special right now and will pay for you to remove your lawn for more water friendly landscaping...I'd like to get good artificial turf watering or mowing...we would still keep our small lawn in the front.

That's about all the news today.....tomorrow we have jobs and I will post some new photos of our grandson, Jayden...he can pull himself up now and will be walking soon.....crawls everywhere..... a happy sweet baby and a blessing to all of us.
