Madame Samm over at Sew I Quilt has given us a new drawing and I couldn't wait to try it out. This is my test block but I think it's pretty cute! I used a plain white back for this but I think a tone on tone will be my final choice for the background. I did a little embroidery stitch on my machine around the neckline and a zigzag stitch to make a belt. I think that belt might need a little rhinestone buckle. :) And I can see one with a little lace peeking out of the neckline, or a matching scarf around the neck. I sure wish I had some fabric that looked like these flowers in my yard:
I don't exactly have a green thumb but I do like to grow a few things. Some years my herbs do better than others but these aren't bad:
The Lemon Balm comes up in a surprising place every spring...it likes to travel.
This Dill is just a baby. I planted it about a month ago but I'm afraid it's not getting enough sun to really mature.
Now the Oregano, it can take on a life of it's own when it's happy!
And this thyme is about 3 years old. At first it just sat there like a bump on a log but this last winter it sort of "came into it's own" and started spreading.
Basil has a problem. It's pretty but I'm afraid it wants more sun than it's getting to even have enough to pick.
I even planted a few onions this year and they're doing well. That Rosemary back there, it's my always-grows herb. And I also have 3 garlic plants almost ready to dig. I've never grown garlic so I'm pretty excited about it. What are you growing in your garden this year?
