In the garden!!

   I've been busy in the garden!!  I've only been getting some stitching done in the evenings.  I did this cute vintage bird motif.  I'm quite pleased with the colors, I've never been good at putting colors together.  But I
think I'm finally getting it.....So this is napkin 9 or 10 or something like that.  I can only think about, geesh I'm almost out of napkins..then what am I going to stitch?!

I just finished this teacup gal and I love her♥  She exhibits what I feel when I'm
out in my garden digging and planting.  I love her head, like she is
soaking up every last drop of sunshine!

Well lets get to the garden shall we!!  Here we have potatoes on the left.  I planted
red and russets.  On the right are onions, red and white.

Here I planted cucumbers 3 varieties, Armenian, sweet delicious, and lemon cucumbers.
In the back on the left a tomatillo plant and basil on the right!  Yum!

Aren't these tomato cages cute!!  I love adding whimsy in the garden :)
I found these at Lowes.  I love summer tomatoes and can't wait till these
babies take off.

And here are peppers.  Bell peppers & jalapenos.  There is a
black beauty egg plant too.  Celery on the left.

My wisteria is going crazy right now.  Smells so good and the
bees are going nuts over it.

The cherry tree is doing its thing right now too!

The chicks are getting bigger.  We hold them alot and are now taking them on little outings in the back
yard.  They are starting to eat more and are getting some feathers too.
Here they are on the couch taking in some American Idol.  Who new chicks dug t.v.?!
Ha ha!  My daughters doing of course :)

Hoping to plant some squash today.  We are forecast for rain so we'll see.  Have a great week!!


  1. Love the stitching! The teacup girl is so sweet. Is it a Vogart pattern? I am stitching up a dancing apple and banana and they have the same faces.

  2. Hey Becky! You know I'm not sure if she's a Vogart pattern. I got her from here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/hooplove/
