Since I had a baby and all this spring, I cut myself a little slack when it came to the garden. But I did manage to plant all the seeds I had leftover from last year. I did have a little help when it came to preparing my beds (thanks Dad!), which made planting much easier. Here are some pictures from the beginning of May:lettuce, carrots and swiss chard kale, kale and more kale bush beans and pole beans elephant garlic and broccoli butternut squash, pink spaghetti squash, cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, bush beans and raspberries

Stash-buster Quilt for Sage

Since I made a quilt for Wyatt I figured it was only fair that I make one for Sage too. So a few weeks ago I started sorting through my stash to see what I could come up with for my sweet baby girl. I wanted it to be mostly red and pink and surprisingly (or not so) I had plenty of fabric that fit the bill. So I've been sneaking into my sewing room every spare chance I get to cut some squares for the quilt. And today after I had cut squares from all the fabric I wanted to use and the rest of my family was napping, I laid out all the squares and came up with this: The best part is I didn't have to buy a single piece of fabric. I can't wait to start piecing it together!

Lovely Napkins

I cringe as I see that its been over a month since I've posted on my blog! I swear I've been doing stuff, I just haven't had the time to blog about it. So here I am, updating. I found some lovely Anna Maria Horner fabric that I had forgotten about in my stash that I really wanted to do something with. I wanted to see it all the time so I decided the best thing to make would be some new cloth napkins. Well it turns out that they are so lovely that I haven't had the heart to use them, yet!
