I loved all the interesting plants that were growing everywhere we went in San Diego. This pot was in the courtyard of our hotel.
Luckily for me, Mother's Day means it's planting time where I live, so that's what I've been working on this week! Although I would not say I have a green thumb, I do enjoy planting things each year and adding color to my yard!
Tiny to begin with, but they will fill up this big pot before too long!
And while we were at it, we planted some veggies in the new raised bed garden planter.
Hoping these will bring us fresh tomatoes and peppers later in the summer!
Meanwhile, in the sewing room, I've been playing with flowers, too. This pretty orange/coral fabric is part of my Beothuk Star QAL project, and since I didn't need all of it for the HSTs I needed to make, I decided it would make a great headdress and skirt for one of Preeti's International Sister blocks.
My lady has sparkly age spots, lol - just like her maker!
I also liked getting caught up on the parts I needed to make for Carole's Scrap Dance Minuet mystery over at From My Carolina Home.
There are bricks, flying geese, and four patches involved. I'm making the table topper size out of my August Blogger Bundle that Carole curated for Needle and Thread Fabrics last year. There are a couple of pretty florals in this bunch, too. Since I bought half yards, I'll have enough to make one of these for my mom, whose birthday is in August!
Happy Mail arrived the other day in a package from Sandra at mmmquilts who is sponsoring the Beothuk Star QAL. I won a charm pack of this pretty fabric that has yellows, grays, and black.
This will be fun to play with! Thank you, Sandra!
And, finally, it was fun to see the first goose mama and papa with their babies at the golf course yesterday.
Little fuzzy goslings, and very protective parents!
Happy Thursday, friends! Hope you're having a great week!
