WIP and Garden Update

After a usually cold and rainy few days here in California, we are finally treated to some beautiful weather. That means GARDENING time...and some time for sewing of course ;).

My oldest, Asher, helped me pick some annuals to put into our new vegetable garden.  Here's a picture of the new flowers next to our little tomato plant.  

The strawberries has embraced the sunshine and turning a delicious red.

The zucchini seedlings has POPPED.  Wow what a difference a couple of weeks make...

And of course some time in the sewing room :).  Binding all cut and sewn for a quilt that is (almost) ready for showing.

I'm also working on a new quilt inspired by retro style florals.  I have a bunch of half squares cut and ready to be pressed.

...only 400 more to go!  Fun times :)

Hi Q! Your plants look great! I'm new to gardening and enjoy it a lot, even though I have a small balcony to create! If you ever have some time, pop in to my blog to see my treasures!
Have a nice day,
Angeliki

So glad to see your garden is growing so well! We've been enjoying the strawberries here, too (if we can beat the rabbits to them)... And yikes - 400 MORE - you have true quilter's dedication. I need some it, if you have any to spare ;)

All the gardens reach a point where they need a little renovation. Renovation is a huge work. It requires a lot of new ideas, time, and knowledge. Most of the people want to rearrange their garden to be more beautiful and more comfortable. Some people want to install a pond or a swimming pool.
