Wisteria Stars Mini

I pulled out the Wisteria Stars Mini again and made six more blocks.

I still don't have much of a plan, there are sooo many sets of bonus triangles. I find myself looking at them, knowing I don't want that many blocks but at the same time not wanting to waste them. A familiar dilemma to me.

I did draft a layout in EQ, which would makes a small wall hanging approximately 28" x 36", but it didn't really inspire me. So I packed the blocks up and put 'em away for another day.

Spring Harvest 2017

I've been gardening for three years. This was the first time I planted winter crops.

This was one of three similar harvests. It was exciting to gather garlic, red and white beets, leeks and onions. I've put up a lot of the leeks in a ferment and the garlic has cured nicely.

It was beautiful and fragrant and it changed a little each day.

Mother's Day Picnic

Frank was there too, but I always forget to get him in front of the camera.
