July 8th, 2008
It’s a tiny garden (actually just a ledge with about 10 planters), but it’s growing. I’ve had about 15 strawberries off of four plants that started blooming a couple weeks ago. If I had space, I would have a whole host of vegetables, herbs, and berries. My neighbor has raspberries, blackberries, grapes, cherries, apples, and peaches, which make such a lovely yard I can hardly stand it. For now, I have my ledge.
The Fourth of July weekend was so nice and relaxing. We spent it with friends, worked on projects, and a took a short jaunt to the mountains to take in the glacier springs, pine forests, and warm sun. It was a perfect weekend. I made a whole lot of progress on my quilt; it’s almost all pieced together. Sew Simple magazine has asked me to write a few articles for their upcoming issues, which I’m just ecstatic about. I made the project for the magazine (don’t worry, I’ll tell you when it’s closer to the press date) and got the tutorial all written out. I still need to test my own writing and make a test of the pattern, so I don’t throw anyone for a loop.
