SEEDS, SEWING, SUNNY FLOWERS and SELF-SUFFICIENCY










st. patty’s has come and gone,  the corn beef and cabbage is now being eaten as left overs. I also made Guinness beef stew that i was not impressed with....oh yeah, the irish are not known for their cooking! it was bland, bland and bland!
but i did get my peas planted and what excitement! i love going out and checking..daily, are they growing, can i see them peeking up through the ground? oh the joys of having a garden, i’m simply shaking with anticipation.
i have decided i am done buying bread and ground some wheat berries and made bread! it is so GOOD.
in the finish list is a zipper bag and two pairs of boxer shorts. both were fun to make and projects i will be making again.
in the “to do list” i cut fabric for two baby boy quilts. two friends, each having a boy, such joy!
i used fabric out of my stash. i must admit how joyful it is to use stash, revisiting old buys, remembering where i was when i bought it- as well as who i was with. old fabric buys and old friends remembered, so fun so relaxing.

that beautiful flower, it was given to me as a bulb at christmas that grew into a beautiful much needed winter flower.
come on spring!

hello my beautiful children!
