Busy Productive Week

The weather finally cooperated this week, except way too hot, and we got the double crop beans in finally.  All finished for a little while. 

Now if we could just get some rain in this area.  These neat looking clouds last Tuesday evening had some lightning in them but all the rain goes away from us.  We could use a little.....

It's Harvest Time

Started combining  wheat on July 5th, Rick helped out cutting at my Dad's.  He had a helper for a while that day. 
My nephew Anthony was running my Dad's combine, too.

Makes things go a lot faster that way !!

Started cutting wheat here on the 6th in front of the house.
Then on back in the other field after that.

Sure was a picture perfect day !!

View from in at the barn looking out.

You don't get a much prettier sky than this especially in July !!
Got a much needed rain this evening so that will delay things a little bit.  Won't be too  much longer and we will be finished. 

Post Stitch Tote Bag

I recently completed this tote bag.

Can't decide if I like it yet or not.  It's really heavy for one thing....

It's worked in double crochets and post stitches to make the diamond pattern stand out. It's worked in Hilos La Espigna nylon size 24.  I think it need to be worked in a thinner thread.  This just seems too big all over but I still want to do some tweaking of the pattern.  I haven't given up on it yet !! One day I look at it I like it then the next time I don't.  I think I need to do away with the gusset on the bottom and see how that looks but that's a project for another day...
