Spring time means weeding. And more weeding. And even more weeding. We just need to keep at it for another month or so and then the Summer will put an end to thriving weeds. But Spring also means time to get some things into pots and others planted in any spare ground. Yesterday, I persuaded Mr P to go with me to the plant nursery. And look what we found! I’ve been wanting a Banksia for years. Actually, I’d love a few more of the proteas too. For now though, this beauty will be positioned at the front door. Isn’t it glorious!? I love it! After putting a few vegetables and herbs in the cart, I couldn’t resist adding some African daisies. Such simple prettiness.Have you added any of your Wish List plants to your own garden this year?
After getting a month’s worth of rain in just 24 hours last weekend, it was great to have some sunshine this week. Weeds are thriving right along with the succulents. At least the bees are happy.This mysterious caterpillar is enjoying itself too. I have no idea what it is but I almost missed seeing it. It’s the perfect shade of yellow/green for blending in. I’m making lists for myself, trying to stay organized and keep things sane. There is a package of Tula Pink’s Tabby Road on its way to Casa P. I’m looking forward to that with great anticipation. And I have fabric pulled for a tunic out of the Tunic Bible by Sarah Gunn and Julie Starr. And of course, there are quilts waiting to be put on the frame.
Gonna need a lot of coffee this month! Have a great Friday and safe, relaxing weekend!
Things are moving slowly here. What with the approaching holiday and several days spent on home improvements (two new dual pane windows are in, leaving two more for this particular phase), stuff isn’t getting done at the usual pace. But I’m continuing to give myself permission to take it easy and not beat myself up about all the things I haven’t gotten to yet. I’m not always very good at listening to my own advice but Stinka has been a huge help.I did manage to sew up some strips of Kaffe. They’re ready to be sewn together for a lap quilt.I also auditioned some Parson Gray EPP for a throw quilt. I really like how this is coming together.
As you can see, fabric is keeping me company even if I’m not actually getting it much of it sewn together into completed projects. I hope you’re finding ways to enjoy your stash too. Follow a little of Stinka’s advice and take it easy.
I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to post again before Thanksgiving, so here’s my holiday greeting in advance. Happy Thanksgiving! And thank you so much for taking time to visit here. I appreciate you all!
