My First Sampler

Good morning, see I told you that I would be back. Are we speaking yet? The sampler above is My First Sampler..not nearly finished...and very "old school". The picture is a little fuzzy as my hands were shaking when I took the picture, it is sooo cold here this morning. What is up with the weather?? This is truly my first sampler that I have ever done with no pattern to follow, hopefully it will turn out like I want it to, but you all know how things in the head do not always turn out on paper..or in this case fabric.
We actually had a very light frost last night, my poor tomatoes! I did not know that it was
going to do that, hopefully they will be o.k. Yesterday was a very relaxing day, we truly did nothing...really nothing. Thought about it though, just could not make myself do anything. And today it is off to do the errands...which means that I HAVE to pass a few Goodwill Stores...I wonder what may await my visit? And then it is off to the mall, another dreaded bathing suit top must be found along with some shorts, I much prefer skorts!! Maybe I shall find a couple of them instead of shorts!! Then I will return home and retreat to the home shop and try really hard to get some work done. I know that July will be here before I know it and I am by no means ready. Until tomorrow,
Have a great day.
