Our teacher Donna's Hobo quilt
Life has been a busy plain ordinary routine of gardening, knitting, and gardening I once again tried seed starting and I had great success with sunflowers! I am using my chicken coop as a potting shed and it’s a wonderful place for plants to have a start without getting eaten by squirrels and gophers.
This is a really good seed starter
San Diego county gets little rain during the summer and we have been in a drought for a while so it's going to be a really long hot summer.
I sure hope Crest gets selected again next year.
The tree hackers came and chopped down two huge Eucalyptus trees and topped another. Tomorrow the Sunrise power link inspector is coming over to inspect what we did with our fire grant .I have made a little nature path and have been making a little garden that has mostly geraniums. I had bought a chicken water jug which I am using for wildlife.
I have a couple more classes left of my knit class and so this year I will have made two pairs of socks and in the middle of the third pair.
I had little Jack spend the night the first time at my home. He is not two yet but he woke up with such a excited smile and said Nana! My heart just melted.
I visited my daughters family for a couple days to help out and it was hard to leave that little guy and my daughter. So as you can see I have been busy but nothing exciting to write about. I did have a wonderful Mothers Day at the Zoo and was lucky they were having a garden festival. I just wish I had taken my camera. The Zoo was giving out free milkweed plant seeds for Monarch butterflies.
Well yesterday was Hobo quilt class and I felt like I was back in the saddle again. Rug Hooking is next week and that will be my inspiration to get something done.
Boy I had forgotten how much fun going to the Country Loft. As I was leaving I saw Cheri Payne . I hadn’t seen her in a while she looked happy. I think Cheri Payne patterns could be easily used for primitive rug hooking so I bought some linen for hooking and a new Cheri pattern.
But just like they say in a book the magic of ordinary days.
I pulled out more then 20 wheelbarrows full of ice plant
