my kind of lawn

I’ve been fascinated with cotton lawn as of late. I was kind of into it, but then I think Melissa kind of pushed me over the edge with all her cotton lawn talk. I ended up buying a yard of cotton lawn by Liberty of London on ebay and am contemplating making a skirt or something:

In other news, Peter is working on a deck/stairs thing out the back door. It’ll come in handy, because right now the back door is only accessible to people on stilts:

August is shaping up to be a very busy month. We are expecting many visitors (which means very little sewing will be accomplished, since the sewing machine is in the guest room, and it’d be antisocial to go off and sew, anyway) and there’s just a lot going on, including maybe a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT later in the month.

    I can’t believe you’re teasing us like that! And thinking a nice fabric photo will appease us.

    Big Announcement? Gee, way to put people on pins and needles! =) Could you be another blogger with a book deal?
    Your husband is so talented and handy. Mine is that way too, and I’m so thankful. It’s great to have a man like that around.

    Maybe you can knit instead! That’s much easier to do when you’re just sitting around talking anyway.

    Nice construction work! Lemme know if you need any CAD drawings. :)
    And the Big Announcement… hmmm, I’ll guess either a new baby or a new book deal.

    Big announcement—hmmm…babies, books and marriages come to mind. You’re already married…hmmm…sports car?
    Love that Liberty print, have fun playing with it before the guest train arrives.

    I think the general concensus is baby announcement

  15. charlotte says:

    new baby? does it mean, you already have one?
    new book deal? is there a supereggplant-book on the shelves?
    please tell me.
    could it be a new dog? a job promotion? your own shop???
    can’t wait…
