Summer is winding down. I've already trimmed back some of the plants that are done for the season. We have a ton of Rose Of Sharon trees so when those are done, it'll take me about a week to trim those and the Lilac bushes. My trumpet vine that I bought to attract my precious little hummingbirds will be ready to cut back in a couple of weeks too. It's grown so much, that this year, we're going to have get a larger trellis for it. Not sure how to get the old one out but I'm sure Scott and I will figure that out. I had no idea when I planted it that it would over grow the trellis and drape itself all over my garden!
Our pumpkin crop has not done well this season. We have 2 pumpkins despite the fact that the vines are growing into our neighbors yard. Our neighbors pumpkin patch is growing into our yard but he has tons of pumpkins so I don't think we'll find ourselves "pumpkinless" this Fall!
I've been stitching on a few things too. I did some Chicken Scratch hearts that I will sew into Crazy Quilt blocks. I also finished up this block:
Mom finished up a project too. This pretty Cottage Style Pillow is made from a vintage tablerunner:
