I have a secret!

For those of you who know me in real life, it's not much of a secret.   But I will give you some hints.



I am having a baby!

I will finish up my first trimester next week so hopefully I will start feeling better!  You may or may not (which is more likely) have noticed that I have been somewhat absent from this here blog over the last month or so.  Mainly that's because I have felt so sick over the last 6 weeks that I have not been able to accomplish anything.  Making dinner and watching tv from the couch are about all I feel up to some days.  The nausea has been lessening over the last few weeks so Saturday when I accomplished all my chores and even weeded the garden, I considered it a win!  And since I got that stuff done on Saturday I could spend Sunday morning doing a little sewing. 

My poor machines have been neglected over the last month but I finally put them to good use making some burpcloths in gender neutral colors and 2 cloth diapers for friends and family to test out.  We plan on cloth diapering this little one so I wanted to try my hand at making them.  Now, they weren't the most fun thing I have ever sewn so I won't be quitting my day job to stay home and make them all day long, but they weren't THAT bad! 

Up next, I have some shorts to sew for the girlies.  Last year they only wanted to wear skirts, which we have tons of, and then this year they decide that shorts are the way to go.  Which we have none of.....  Go figure!

Some shots from the garden!

The garden is all planted and the hard work has begun! 


Fuschia plant hanging up

Super tall onions!

Short onion blooms!

Moon and stars watermelon leaves.  I love the spots!  And the watermelon is speckled just like the leaves!

Hosta blooms

Snap dragons

Pink snap dragons and coreopsis.  Both of these and the red snap dragons above over wintered from last year as we had one of the most mild winters in history! 

Some kind of squash.  I planted 3 varieties this year.  It looks like the marker in the back ground says patty pan.....

Squash blossom

One of my 11 tomato plants.  This is the only Dr. Wyche's Yellow that made it!

I also planted 18 pepper plants, 4 okra plants, Orange glo watermelon, canteloupe and 2 cucumber plants, but for some reason I have no pictures of them!
