Stitch Magazine

Yesterday I bought the fall issue of STITCH magazine at JoAnn Fabric.

Usually I wouldn't purchase a $14.99 magazine, but this one has an article by my daughter, Jenny! She designed a Bunny Nap Roll.

The Bunny rolls up for travel or storage and the ears fasten the roll together. The roll has a built-in pillow.

Such a cute pattern....not that I'm biased :)

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!

My flower beds could be described by the title of the 70's movie, THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY.

The GOOD.... the beautiful clematis and lilies now blooming.

(I can visualize neat wall hangings in the following photos.)

The BAD...something has been eating some of my flowers and has taken the tops and future flowers off of these plants.

The UGLY... the bark in flower beds has been infiltrated by Dog Vomit Fungus!  The fungus looks just like its name.  Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any way to get rid of it or stop it.  At least it isn't harmful....just disgustingly ugly.
