Blankie, Rooms, and a Garden Project

June 27th, 2011


I put together this little baby blanket for a little boy that was born a few months ago. I had some of these fabrics left over from something I made for Ulysses–I cannot seem to remember what. It was fun to put together and fun to use up fabric I had on hand. I tied it, which always looks cute.

We spent all of Saturday working in the yard. Ryans family took Uly in the a.m. and my mom took him nap and overnight. We got so much done! Seriously! It would have taken us at least three weeks to pull this off otherwise. Ryan finished the rest of our fence with some help from his brother and our stepdads. Yay! And I cleaned up all the beds and finally attempted to jigger something for where our grates were stolen. We have so much landscaping! Lots and lots and lots of plants. It is a small yard, but the whole thing is covered with lovely green things and flowers. I seem to only need to do this a couple of times a year, so it is manageable. I will get out there and take some pics soon. And since I had gardening on the brain, I thought it might be fun to try this little project to make a thumb-controlled watering can.

And I have been drooling over these kid rooms. Oh my!

    This quilt is really nice. I like the color combination.
    It’s so rewarding to work in the garden. I try to sneak in a little bit each day but it’s not where it should be. I need a day like yours:)
