Hi everyone - thanks again for checking out this week's Made by ME linky party. Below are some delicious treats from last week - for your taste bugs and your eyes ;). Read to the end of the post to add your project and see what others have completed this week :).
Welcome to another week of Made by Me Linky party :). Awesome projects last week. I had a blast reading them - I hope you did too! Here are some highlights from last week - read to the end of the post to view projects from this week.
I have been spending a lot of time in front of my sewing machine lately - YEH!!! So I thought I'll show you a view of what I'm staring at most of the day.
Here's a glimpse of some little boy quilts I'm working on. Straight line against the seam quilting. I love quilting this style - it's modern and very effective.
My poor cutting table that is currently occupied by my computer and a bunch of bolts that I have some plans for... ;)
And here's a view of my ironing board currently - It is completely full of stacks like these. Napkin fabric that is all cut and ready to be sewn.
Do you notice a theme here? It seems like all my flat surfaces in my sewing machine is FULL. I think I have maybe a corner of the cutting table that I could probably fit something on. All this makes me fill productive and cluttered at the same time :).
I always chuckle a little when I think of the vegetables in the garden as "harvest". Mainly because harvest, to me, sound like such a plentiful word. And trust me, my harvest is not ;).
This is the second year in this garden - well first if you take into account these are NEW vegetable beds because of some ground intruders from my last bed that needed to be completely redone. I am loving it. Three planter boxes and a whole lot of work later, I have my first tomato harvest - 3 Early Girls and 1 Roma. I also have a few zucchinis and even a handful of green beans.
As you could see from the picture above, 2 of the zucchinis are tiny. I didn't get a chance to pollinate those by hand. If you don't get honey bees in your garden, you would understand :). Articles such as this will go over the importance of having to hand pollinate such plants as zucchinis if you too find yourself with stunted zucchinis.
Also in the garden are a small pepper plant bearing a few little peppers.
I also have a couple of rows of basil growing. I already harvested it once and had enough to make pesto for the whole family :). Nothing like home grown plants!
I'm hoping to get a second round of vegetables in the garden this year. Maybe another round of green beans and is it too late for broccoli???
