What a difference a week makes! Last Thursday's post involved snow, but today it's looking like this here in Colorado.
I liked doing some planting this week, finally! I garden on a very small scale, and this is my 3 foot x 4 foot raised bed with a couple of pots for the tomatoes.
In the raised bed, I planted green beans, cucumbers, and pumpkins.
The green beans finally poked their heads up today!
This beautiful Western Tanager has been celebrating Spring in our yard this week, too! I think we're just a rest stop on his way up into the mountains for the summer, but we've sure enjoyed seeing him.
I've been enjoying this book this week, recommended by Wendy of Pieceful Thoughts. So many interesting parts to this historical account of two young women who wanted some different experiences from what was typical for women in the 1920s.
We watched this sweet movie on Netflix the other night. It's an older one from 2009, but I had never seen it before. It's a lovely story about a very loyal dog, based on a true story from Japan.
One thing I always enjoy doing is trying something new in my sewing room. This week I've been planning to make the exclamation mark blocks for the May row of the Full Stop sampler for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Yesterday, I drew out the pattern for paper-piecing the top section, and got one block made.
A row of these will be fun with the other blocks!
Lots more to make...
Hope you're having a great week!
