What is happening today

I had a pile of rugs, table runners and placemats that were waiting near the sewing machine for me to hem. I decided today was the day. I still have a few to go.

After hemming they go into the washing machine and then on a rack to dry. This is the first batch I did this morning.

After a while I ran out of thread so I went to Hobby Lobby. While I was in the area I stopped in at Target. I want to get back into craft shows and so I have been thinking about my booth display. I want to do something different this year. I have this idea that I can hang my rugs on hangers from a garment rack and make them easier for people to see rather than stacking them on a table. This is what I found. It is a commercial grade rack that folds down to four inches. Hope this works for me.

I also finished winding a dish towel warp for the Schacht. It is shades of blue.

Lastly I will leave you with some pictures of flowers from my studio garden.

And now the mystery plant. This is very short. I have never seen this before. Any ideas as to what it is?

You have been busy! How satisfying to see all your work laid out before you.
I don't recognize the flower, sorry.

Beautiful flowers. I don't recognize it either. Isn't it a good feeling to get so much done.

Great idea about the rack...all you need now are some pant that "rug" hangers!

Your new rack is gonna help a lot for your booth and also just displaying rugs in your studio too. Good move!

Love your flower pics... we are wayyy behind you in springtime weather for sure.

I think your flower is a Hypericum (St. Johnswort). Probably H. calycinum which is a ground cover plant.

Thank you, Dawn! I looked it up and the flowers are the same.
