I’ve been awfully scarce this week, and the truth is that I haven’t gotten much sewing done. The garden has needed tending and the house has needed cleaning. Oh, and the children needed a little bit of my attention, too. But we’ve had some beautiful days here, and the kids and I have been spending almost every afternoon outside, playing in the kiddie pool and watering the garden.
Speaking of garden, look what I found yesterday in our back box:
Do you know what that is? It’s corn! Growing in my backyard! Just the sight of these tiny little seedlings — which are actually growing about half an inch each day at this point — fills me with a childish sort of glee. I am absolutely delighted to see them peeking up at me from our twiggy, rocky, dry Texas dirt. Now if I could just get my children to avoid stomping over them until they get a bit stronger.
I may not have been sewing as much as usual, but I have gotten a few things accomplished. I DID get those 1930’s prints for mother’s day (thank you, honey!), and I’m working on a new project that involves — you guessed it — circles! I am a woman obsessed. This new experiment is very different from my last quilt, though, and I am only about 60% sure that it’s going to turn out like I want it to, so I’m not quite ready to share it. Time will tell if it, and the corn, come to fruition!
