A customer had given me a cut toad lily the last day the shop was open. I had made a note of it and wanted to see if they had any toad lilies. They did, so maybe I'll just get one, you know for posterity's sake.
I saw a gardening show on TV where they had violas. They are similar to pansies, but are perennials and act a little as a groundcover. They had them, so maybe I'll just get two...OK, I need four. Afterall, I need to space them out to cover the area in mind.
You see how this trip went. A couple hundred dollars later, the trunk was full and I was leaving the greenhouse. Note to self....don't go when you are feeling unappreciated or have flower fever. Heck, the place will give you flower fever, so don't go unless you have just won the lottery.

Saturday, I loaded a quilt on the longarm and decided I would finish another of Prodigal Son's welding caps. Hubs decided he wanted one, so this turned into a 'rest of the day' ordeal. His head is 'substantially' larger than DS, so I had to tweak the pattern. He chose this fish fabric (we are scuba divers). I figured if he didn't like it, we could always use it for a parachute in a plane crash! (Oops, did I say that out loud???)
Here is the hat I was finishing up for Prodigal Son. We finally have the pattern tweaked to the correct size and fit.
So, if you are taking notes here....I have had an entire week where I have not gotten my half hour a morning in the sewing room with all of these sleep issues and other commitments. I may try to sneak in this afternoon, but hubs is already asking me what's for dinner!
