Projects for summer weekends

I’ve been spending a lot of time outside these past few weekends–the weather was better than predicted!  I weeded my garden beds and planted a bunch of annuals and pepper plants.

I finished up a cross-stitch piece that I’ve been working on for my niece since she was born…over a year ago.  Next time, I’ll choose a simpler one.  But it came out really nicely and I’ll be getting it framed soon to hang in her nursery, which has an elephant theme.
