While I was visiting, my sister took me to a charming winery for lunch.  

The food was delicious and we enjoyed a glass of wine.  We also took a bottle home. 

Some of the new grapevines.


The interesting thing about this winery is that it is surrounded by fields of hops.

Here's a close up of hops growing.  Those wires are about 20 feet high.  It's quite an operation to grow them commercially.

 They look like they could take over the world if they they wanted to.


National Needlepoint Month

It's National Needlepoint Month.  What an appropriate time to post pictures of my class from the American Needlepoint Guild Seminar this year.


My class was Trilogy of Stitches by Kurdy Biggs and here's what I got done in class.  

It was a very exciting moment when all my stitches lined up correctly to form the first circle.  I have tons more stitching to do before this is finished.

 I cannot say enough good things about our instructor.  She was very patient and encouraging while guiding us through all these complicated stitches.  And wow, what a mind to put this design together!  I would definitely take classes from her again.



Knitting Fool

Did I say I was a knitting fool?  I was a fool alright.



That was all the unknitting I had to do because I can't seem to count past four or follow directions.


Lone Starburst

Lone Starburst is back on the design wall.  It's much easier to see where I am when everything is pinned into place.


Oh, it looks like I may have made some sewing progress too.


Pot of Gold

We have had so much rain this year.  35 inches through July according to the Capitol Weather gang here in Washington.

It's about time I saw a rainbow


and it looks like the pot of gold should be right in the middle of our field.
