I can't believe spring has sprung on us already! Keeping myself busy has really helped me get through the dreaded Tax Season (which, you would think after 32 yrs I would be used to). So here's what has been keeping my attention these days:
First of all, I do believe I have this sourdough bread baking business down to an art. A darn good art, at that! I have a great starter and I bake bread whenever I can. Honestly, I think I have OD'd my neighbors on bread for now.
Next was my Growth Chart project to send for Cade's birthday. I cannot believe it, but that little guy is walking! He took his first steps before he was even 11 months old, little stinker! I could not find a pattern anywhere for making one of these, so I had to make it up as I went along. I looked at lots of images online that were out there, believe me. So, here is what I came up with:
I loved the jungle/safari themed material- so bright and colorful! And since I had quite a bit left over, I decided to make a quilted blanket for him too. I have always said he was a little monkey, the way he would use his feet and toes. So, this is the front/top:
And then I put this on the back:
After finishing these and getting the box off to KY (along with other toys, clothes and books for him) I started planting seeds for the container garden I'm going to have this year. I have yellow squash, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, 3 different kinds of tomatoes, broccoli, romaine lettuce, seed lettuce and morning glories (not for containers). I will be sharing many of these plants with others. Hope everyone has a great, allergy-free (ha ha) spring!
