Warm sunny spring days are starting to seem
like only fairy tales around here. How is one
supposed to be motivated to do anything when
one is freezing cold?!? And it's snowing!?
I had a bit of a busy week but I was able to
make at least a little progress on the to-do's:
Load on long arm & pick panto.
There's a good chance I can get all
the blocks made this week.
Not much done.
I'm struggling to get into this one. I'm not too
excited about how it's looking--yet.
It looks better than this picture shows at least and
my experience tells me it should get better as it
grows. Also, the piecing is a bit of a tug of war.
I'm using starch but I'm not sure it's helping.
Probably not going to happen this week either.
I was right. Nothing here.
It's early but...this week I'm going for all the rest
except for peppers, eggplant and tomatoes.
Timed perfectly to come up after this [lousy] freeze.
Wish I could say the same for the blooms on the
fruit trees. Another year without fruit. Ugh.
Well, besides the strawberries. They'll be fine.
(Financial portfolios aren't the only thing to diversify!)
I trimmed off all the asparagus worth picking and put
a light layer of straw over the potatoes and cabbage.
I think anything else that's up should be fine.
It's going the right direction--yay!
Not sure why these always end up blurry no matter
what I do but the end result there is a +10.10. If I
can keep from buying for a few more weeks, this
should finally be in the negative!
And next week's to-do's:
Start quilting; think of a name.
Going to try this again: get all blocks made.
Open to whatever.
(Still want to try some outdoor sewing with these!)
If the 10-day forecast looks good after this [dumb] freeze,
I'm putting in peppers, tomatoes and eggplant. And all
the herbs. I miss fresh basil the most over the winter so
I can't wait. I always think rosemary is my favorite but
basil and thyme are right in there; sage is the taste of fall...
