I planted a few seedlings in the vegie patch yesterday some broccoli, cabbages and spring onions which look dwarfed amongst the silverbeet, rhubarb, tomatoes and raspberries.
But hopefully they will survive and grow well. Along with thousands of other people we are doing our very best to try and grow somethings ourselves and to recycle and re-use as much as possible. I started off some compost yesterday and Rod (hubby) has promised to build me some new raised beds over the next few weeks because he starts holidays on Friday. We also have 6 hens coming to live with us on the weekend so we need to build them some accomodation this week.
I received my partner for Dolly's Vintage Heart Swap and I have had a ball checking out her blog, ebay auctions and web site. Shannon is my partner and she is a very talented artist. I think I have decided what to make and send her and have been shopping for lots of goodies. I am going to start the bag to contain all of the goodies tonight.
Thanks for the kind words about my angel story blocks. I am afraid that I can't take the credit for the fabric choices as I purchased the full kit from Honeysuckle Cottage. I saw the fully made quilt at the Quilted Crow's Christmas gathering and fell in love with it.
