These Tuesdays sneak up on me sometimes
so this is a quick, barely-edited post this morn.
Sunny and mild! Cold and freezing! Sunny and hot!
Now we're in the 80's and the windows are
staying open at night. Crazy times, crazy times.
The good news is that I have seen very little damage
from the freeze so I'm hopeful our fruit trees will
still produce this year. Only time will tell.
Speaking of time, let's kick off the list of to-do's
with my hourglass quilt:
Start quilting; think of a name.
did get it named. I think it looks like "attic" colors...
whatever those are. Antique-like, I guess.
So, "Time In the Attic" works for me.
Naming isn't rocket science!
Lattice QuiltGet all blocks made.Some done.
I am making progress at least. A little pinning is
helping out with the tug of war. Yes, I am pinning.
Still want to try some outdoor sewing with these.
Sunday would have worked for my outdoor sewing
but I don't do much, if any, sewing on the weekends.
A non-windy nice day is rare here in KS but it
does happen so I'll keep waiting.
GardeningPut in peppers, tomatoes and eggplant. And all herbs.
I also caved and, after seeing some of my recipes,I picked up more cabbage (Nappa/Chinese) to grow.
What's a few more? Still haven't caught that moth
but there has only been one sighting.
Anyhoo, so the garden is all planted--yay!--until late
June/early July when the pumpkins gourds go in.
In other news...
It's been a long time since I added to my pantograph
collection so I decided to treat myself. I'll update
my tab with the names of these later today.
Not much else to tell so I'll move on into
next week's plans.
Finish blocks? Hard to say.
Just depends on how much outdoor work
I decide to do.
Outdoor sewing if weather cooperates.
Finish straightening fences. Start on mulch process.
Hubs and I have been straightening up the 2-ft fence
around each bed (to keep out bunnies and chickens)
and replacing most of the plastic stakes with more
permanent metal ones. Also, now that everything is
planted, I'm going to start putting organic weed barriers
(newspaper, cardboard, etc) down and topping them
with mulch. I don't mind a little weeding here and
there but a big garden like mine is just too much.
This is an investment of time and work that
really pays off the rest of the season.
Have a great week and happy quilting!
