We have had some unseasonably warm weather this winter. We have not been below freezing for a few weeks and it is not forecasted to be too cold again for the next few weeks so I took a gamble and planted my greens. I worked up the garden where I put my herbs last year because it is in the nook of our house and is protected and allows for me to protect the plants if we do get a cold snap.
I planted kale in two rows closest to the house and then planted spinach next to the kale. I mixed three packets of lettuce seed and then just sprinkled it in the middle section.
I have been working on some larger projects lately that are still in progress and I am behind blogging about some smaller ones. This post will act as a preview of some awesome things to come as well as a look back at somethings that I overlooked.
I am working on a smaller lap blanket. You might recognize the “LOVE Blocks” from a couple of posts ago. I made myself a set of the blocks and I am adding some paper pieced heart blocks. I am really happy with how this is turning out and I will update you as I make more progress.
I am using up scraps of fabric from the apron what was not after I messed up the cutting for my friend Sarah. I made her a set of the “Love Blocks” that she is using as a table runner, she loved them. I had a bunch of fabric left over and I really like the color combination and how it is coming together. I love this fabric and I can make myself feel better about my crafting when I do not have to go buy a bunch of supplies for a project.
I used this same fabric to make a gift for some friends at Christmas.
They wanted to learn to knit so put together a kit with some yarn (from my stash), some knitting needles and I made these carrying cases to keep all their goodies in. You can see that the top pockets have a closure. The middle pockets are for knitting needles and other straight longer supplies like a ruler, etc. The bottom pockets can hold circular needles or really anything else. The kit all folds up into an easy to store and carry bundle.
