I received more corn and froze two dozen ears. This little brush was given to my by my daughter; one she had received as a wedding gift and had no idea what to do with it. I looked it up and I think the original plan was to use the straw as cake testers to make sure a cake was finished baking. I have always used it to scrub the silks off my corn... works perfectly.

On Wednesday I went to Michael's and found a summer wreath for my door. I spent a little time cleaning the doors and entry way, added a couple flags to my wreath, and Happy 4th of July! I used to make my wreaths and still hope to get back to that one day. However, with Michael's 60% off sale, I have learned that I cannot buy all the flowers, ribbon, etc to make a wreath for those prices. Granted I would have had leftover material to make another, but I tend to rarely use up my scrap ribbons.
|I also stopped and bought a fresh geranium and a few perennials|
Remember in a recent post, I said something about making pretties to use? Well here I go, embroidering a pretty dish towel for myself. I stopped by Hobby Lobby on Monday and used my 40% coupon to buy two dish towels. I had not seen this particular towel design there before. It feels loosely woven, but oh so soft, so I used a stabilizer on the back. I'm curious to see how this will wash up and dry in the dryer.
I have plenty of housework that still needs doing, but I tend to ignore my sewing room and my unfinished guest room, that also doubles as hubby's closet for work clothes. I usually run in there and straighten the room when I know that guests are coming. This is definitely a near future project, as I am getting serious about wanting a 'put together' room.

Happy 4th of July to everyone and stay safe!
