Some sewing, some nature.........

I sewed a little bit yesterday.  I have 8 more pieces to add onto each row to finish the bottom half.

I spent a few hours reading finishing a murder mystery.  Now I need to look for another book to read.  There are plenty of them waiting to be re-shelved.

The asters are just starting to bloom.  They are so much darker than this though.  Sunlight washes out the color.

This little group is in the shade and they look bluer but are still lighter than looking at them with the naked eye.

I'm not sure if these are petunias or if they had a different name.  They were a really deep intense purple all summer and now have started fading.

My friends shared some compost with me and she mentioned they had tomato plants coming up in their flower pots.  Lo and behold I have one too.  It looks like the Roma variety.

A few days ago I got a card from my friend Julie.  She uses her scraps and makes her own note cards.  I don't have any of those fabrics; maybe I should save them for a crazy pieced block...or maybe I'll just save the card and enjoy them that way.  Thanks Julie!
