Planted pumpkin and sunflower seeds today

I hope I didn't do them to late in the season but we will see. I didn't want the pumpkins to harvest in August so now they should be ready by the end of September. Speaking of sunflowers by hubby bought me a bouquet of sunflowers yesterday and of course had to pull out the camera and take pictures of my favorite flower. I took these using a spot filter on my camera and of course I had to change one of them

I have a product review for the Singer Pixie

Ok let me start by saying I have 2 great sewing machines but wanted this little compact one for some light projects. I have read some of the reviews but let me just say this. It comes with some thread and bobbins which is ok but throw that thread away and empty it off of the bobbins. The thread is cheap and breaks really easy and will frustrate you. Get yourself a spool of Coat's and Clark fill your bobbin then sew you will find it does so much better. Also keep in mind that this is a craft sewing machine and it is for light projects such as scrap booking, light sewing , small projects etc. Don't buy this with the intention of sewing a new wardrobe or making curtains for your entire house or you will be disappointed.

There were comments about the peddle giving out now hasn't happened to me yet and hope it doesn't but with the flip of a switch it will sew for you and has several stitch patterns. Also if you read the directions it tells you to unplug when not in use.

It is light weight and portable enough to take away from home and get this it will run on batteries too.

From this....... to this

I walked outside to my deck yesterday and I saw a photo moment. There on my plant was a baby I think grass hopper. After about 30 shots with the camera and pictures that didn't do as well as I hoped for I settled with this one and made some interesting changes.

Well my seeds are still in the packets but the ground is ready. Why you ask? Well we have had so much rain lately that I am afraid they will wash away or rot. I hope to get them done this week because I would love to see some sunflowers by July or August and also some big fat pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns.
