Monday Rambles ~ seeds, quilting, frozen raindrops

This winter has been a doozy, I usually don’t get tired of winter, as I like the cold…I just like it cold and sunny, not cold and grey. Yesterday the sun was out most of the day…it played hide-n-seek with some clouds…and when it WAS out, it was warm.

My gardening hands have been twitching to play in the dirt! LOL! But the ground is still pretty frozen, so I played with some starter plant mix, peat pots and seeds. I took out my seed starter box from the shed and planted some onions, leeks, corn, pickling cucs, four different types of heirloom maters, and a mix of salsa peppers & Serranos.

It rained Saturday night and Sunday morning, while feeding the birds, I saw frozen water drops on the clothes line.


I finished my Mystery Quilt…am binding it now. Here’s the back of it…pre sandwich and quilting.

DA CHICKEN IS MINE! MINE I SAY! And she’s quite happy in my fabric hutch…THANK YOU, DONNA!

Hopefully she makes more so I can buy a few to add to the roost. 🙂 You can find Donna over HERE….she’s a crochet fiend. One of these days we’ll get her to quilt. Do you hear me Donna? ONE OF THESE DAYS! 😉

Another one of my books from the Crafters Choice book club came in the mail…Back To Basics ~ Traditional Kitchen Wisdom. I have the Back to Basics book, but this one pulls all of the gardening and kitchen topics into one place.

    You guys are so silly, LOL!! I only have 2 hands. And if I could, I would crochet with two hooks. Hubby asked if I liked crocheting better than beading and macrame. I didn’t at first but do now. I LOVE CROCHETING!!

    Thanks for the mention of my chicken potholder. Love the picture. I think I will make more.

    Yep, I agree, Donna has already mastered the yarn–time for her to dust off her trusty sewing machine and start sewing and quilting. 😉
