Mother's Day Gift

Youngest son provided the $$$.  I provided the plans and hubby provided the labor. I now have a new Sewing Table

As you can see it is in the shape of a bay window.  On the left side is my cutting side, middle is for sewing and on the right is for Ironing.  It is set up so I can look out my windows at the birds bathing or feeding.  I'm so happy.

Goober after Goober

All I can say is I'm trying and making colossal fails but I've not given up. Just put it on the back burner.
I'm just sitting on this till I can figure it out.

Been so busy with this and that and life that I've not had much time to sew. Hopefully, I'll have something to post next week.

Late Start

Well, I've been busy. Lol. When am I not. The adventure for this week is getting my garden started. Today, Jake and I started our seeds. I've also been digging and turning the soil for where I plan to put my seedlings when they're ready. Oh, I'm sore and tired and there is still much work to be done.

New EPP Project

Well, now that my hexie diamond top is complete. I decided to prep for my next project. I really do like the idea of stars for my next epp. No plans to finish it this year. Drew up an idea and roughly figure I'll be needing about 180 stars. That's a lot of paper and fabric to be cutting. So, I've spent the days cutting paper diamonds and I've cut out 70 stars from all my scrap fabrics. Some shopping and swapping is in the near future if I plan to keep this scrappy. No star the same.

Finished Quilt Top

Finally all my patches are sewn together. My hexie diamond quilt top is complete. It has its many mistakes, but its ready to be sandwiched and quilted - at a later date. Need to finish up my other quilts on my frames before I can get to this one.

Have to say I learned a lot. Started this almost 13 years ago. Only worked on it when we went camping. Then its been packed away a few years. Sad thing I lost my original hexie papers, so when I went to get more they turned out 1/8 of an inch different. So this quilt is warped, but I've spent so much time on it. I needed to see it through. It definitely has a story to tell.

First of the year

I can't believe this but it's already starting to produce. There is more but not ripe like this one. Just so excited.
 Soon we'll be having tomatoes and onions and hopefully carrots as well.

have the carrots and radishes in the ground along with the lavender and rosemary.  Still have the green beans to plant along with the potatoes. Dad has to finish up the spot for those but all will be in the ground by the end of this week.

In two weeks time I'm going to have to transplant the carrots and radishes into different pots but hey my garden will be flourishing.  Positive thinking!
