Hi All… I thought I would drop by again ๐Ÿ™‚

I dont have much to show. Hopefully that will change in the coming months.

I saw this design on Instagram . The designer hasn’t posted a link to the pattern but since I am not selling what I made I hope she doesn’t mind I made one for myself. Its c2c (corner 2 corner) .

I bought this Dragon Purse pattern a month ago. I thought it was cool although I am not much ofย  a dragon fan . It uses a stitch I dont use much but love . The Crocodile stitch.

I ran out of yarn BUT I am not frogging this one. When I go to walmart at the end of the week I will get more Mainstays basic yarn. I do want to start another one so I will use a whole skein for number 2.

I love love love this stitch.ย 

And since its spring I am growing stuff! I started this lettuce (romaine) last week and look at the cute little sprouts! I need to put them in soil soon.

Jon mentioned getting me a mini greenhouse so I can grow more veggies. I’m on the fence about that. I’m a bit nervous that everything will die or an animal gets inside and destroys everything. We’ll see. Do you grow your own veggies? Tell me all bout it ๐Ÿ™‚

Gardening:Always a work in progress

I have inherited my mother’s “green thumb”. Well sorta. Since she passed 5 years ago my want to garden has increased.
We rent so I cant have a huge garden like I want. We have a tiny patch along our walkway. It gets minimal sun. The landlord planted 3 lily plants (which I love) years ago. My MIL hates them. They stay because I take care of the garden ๐Ÿ™‚

This was from a few years ago.

These were just taken this past Tuesday….. I have so much to do ! ๐Ÿ™‚
This is one of the lilies with snow from monday
How it looks at about 1pm. too much shade.
My poor Hydrangea ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ย Last year it didn’t bloom at all. I hope it does this year. Its a pretty blue.
As I was weeding my garden last weekend ( before the snow) I noticed I need more soil. I want to do something with those trellis things, even if I have to crochet something,( morning glories perhaps).
The garden definitely needs a new design layout.
I hope my MIL doesn’t buy any tacky garden decorations this year. In the top picture you can see a few ducks on sticks. So corny. lol . I want to place a few bird feeders in the garden this year. I don’t like birds but they remind me of my mom who loved them .
