Lately it feels like Wisconsin had become a temperate rain forest.
Five days of rain to every two days of sunshine, just enough sun to get the lawn mowed...
Our spring started out unseasonably warm. All of the flowers are blooming weeks early this year.
The corn is ahead of schedule too. Hopefully things will dry up a bit soon so the crops stay healthy and hay can be cut. Wishing you all sunny days ahead!

P.S. Dye Candy One of a Kind Hand Dyed Fabrics are on sale now through July 11th. Stop by and take a look.

Independence Day and a Fabric Sale at Dye Candy

Meet my Independence Day Baby. We brought him home from the hospital 21 years ago just in time to see the 4th of July fireworks. That seems like a lifetime ago.

It has been such a joy watching him grow into adulthood. We are proud parents of this young man. Happy 21st birthday son - Rock On!
It has been a while since I have been able to post. The last two months have been a whirlwind of visitors at the Shady Grove and a few weekend trips to visit friends and family. It was good to see everyone but it is really good to be settled in at home for a while.

I'm looking forward to having enough time to blog again. I have been trying to catch up but my Google Reader stopped counting 4 weeks ago when I hit 1000+ unread posts. It was down to 750 unread posts as of last night. I just can't bring myself to hit the delete button and make the posts disappear into cyberspace.

In honor of many days of independence ahead all of my one of a kind hand dyed yardage is on sale in my Dye Candy Fabric Shop. I also wrote a short post the fabrics I use and the dyeing process here.

Wishing you all a wonderful Independence Day!
