I think it's finally here - cross your fingers

Yesterday was warm and it was supposed to rain last night.  After church and lunch I went to the loft for a little sewing and then came to the house and got out our seeds. 

We had tilled the beds last fall so after just a little work with a hoe I had rows of radishes, spinach, 2 rows of Mesclun lettuce mix and a row of Black Seeded Simpson lettuce.  There's also a short row on the left end between the perenniels of mustard spinach - like spinach but a little spicier.  We grew some last year and really liked it.
There are also 2 rows of sugar snap peas in a different bed with a little fence to grow on.

At the right end of the bed are some of Grandma Laird's (Audra's) iris.

And it did indeed rain last night.
Hopefully the drought is over here.  The pond is starting to fill.

When I posted the sale on our Farmer's Market kit last week, I forgot to show you pictures of the quilting.

I mean, just look at how Lori's awesome quilting highlights the applique.    Anyway, the kits will be on sale until Wednesday.

This is a picture of the first 2 blocks and the sashing and borders of Spring Break - the BOM kit that started in March.  We're shipping the Sashing, Borders and Binding this week along with the kit for the 2nd block. If you pay with Paypal be looking for an invoice this week.  It will be awhile before you use it but if I don't get it now it will be gone when we need it.  At this stage Moda doesn't reorderso when the fabrics gone, it's gone.  Also a note that the first few blocks are small for the price but the later ones are HUGE so we just even out the cost over the months.

Pep and I looked this morning and even with the rain, our seeds aren't up yet.  I know they mostly say 7 days but it's been 18 hours.  Sheesh  :)

So I will content myself with my beautiful Amaryllis.

And of course, sit and stitch.
Keep quilting ladies.


  1. lol! You're cracking me up with the 18 hours and no sprouts yet! Isn't Spring the greatest?!?!?

    1. That's the way my husband always does it. He's watched too many Wiley Coyote cartoons. :)

  2. I am the same way, I watch them every day to see if they sprout, lol.
    It is way to cold at night to plant here, but finally warming up.


  3. And even laughing at myself, I still go look every morning and every night :)

  4. Jan, Love the pics!

    Just wanted to let you know that today I received both March and April blocks in the same envelope. March invoice dated 21 March and Apr invoice dated 16 Apr. Not sure what day it was mailed but according to the 29 Apr email from Tori my Apr block was sent out sometime around 29 Apr and she was going to send the March block to me but as you can see I don't need it. Looking forward to seeing what the May block looks like.
