52 Projects Sunday - sewing, leak proofing and transplanting - and an anniversary

3 projects will be done by the end of today (I know I am stretching the project rules here). I did finish the "muslin" skirt and altered the pattern draft and am now ready to cut out the real material and see if I can make it fit.

Hubby is working hard on trying to stop water from coming into our basement when we have heavy rain. He has already done some roof repair and is finishing work on the grading and downspout today.

I am going to transplant an azalea that is failing to thrive and put it in a hopefully better location. This is the second try in the current location so it is obviously a no go spot.

We celebrated our 33rd anniversary last night with a play at our favorite theatre followed by dinner out. Enjoyed both greatly.

Have a great week!


  1. Good luck with the skirt pattern.
    Azaleas like ericaceous compost, have you tried digging in used coffee grounds/ pine needles or something similar which will make the ground more to their liking - it worked on my blueberry bushes :)

    Happy anniversary!

    1. Thanks for the suggestion but it is only this bush out of 5 that isn't doing well. I think it is the exact spot where the plumber had to dig down 6 feet to fix a broken water main and the soil on top is totally clay. We moved it to a different part of the yard and have our fingers crossed
