What I’ve been up to..

Rather than do a big, long post, I thought I would do a visual list of what I’ve been up to lately..

1. Balcony Garden. I am learning to grow things.

Sunflowers, lavender, aloe and sage, rosemary, ferns.. and more. It is a baby garden, but you just wait.

2. A Blue Jay named, “Ninja”. We tamed him.

3. New collages. I hope they will be on par with “Storehouse” (which I consider my best one).

4.  I am attempting to make the baby wrap on the cover of this book with an adorable brown and white mushroom fabric. I am not the best sewer, but I am trying. It is for my oldest friend who is having her first baby any time now. We were little hippie chicas together back in the day (the mid-90’s). 😉

As you can see I also got her Nikki McClure’s “Awake to Nap” and wee, little converse socks (something every baby should have).

5. I am reading this book: Dandelion Wine by: Ray Bradbury

6. I want to read this one:  The Mouse Woman Trilogy by: Christie Harris

7. Game of Thrones.  

Poor Jorah Mormont. Friend zoned forever.. maybe.

8. Magic. I’m into it lately..

9. Yo-yos.

10. The Granny Square. Next on my list after 1) gardening (in progress) and 2) embroidery (fits and starts).

    Love the mushroom fabric! Very sweet gift. Your balcony garden and tame bluejay sound like a storybook!
