work, work and no play, make me a dull jane!

We have been working on changing the pond and patio.  The first picture shows the ground that had the tanks in it, and when we took them out, left two rather large holes in the ground.  We filled the holes and will be putting new ground fabric down and then put blue stone on top.  We are going to put up gazebo in place of the pond.  We moved the stock tank with my pond plants under the strawberry arbor for now.  We plan on digging a bigger pond in the ground and putting in a pond liner this time.  It takes some planning to do an in ground pond.  We don't know if it will be done this year or not, time goes pretty fast when other things need to be done also.

I have been working on getting scarves woven.  I have around four of them done.  I still have a one more to do, then I will be doing some more shawls.  Then it is rag rugs, then towels, then some more scarves and so on.  I just hope that I can get enough inventory ahead for craft show.  I did get a good idea from a friend.  They suggested that if I don't have enough, I can always take orders also.  We shall see.  I need to quit doing arends during the week and get some work done.

Take care.

A gazebo sounds nice! perhaps you should take photos of everything you have woven and then make a portfolio to take along to craft sales I have seen some people do that with furniture etc...that will give you more to sell from:)
