Spring in my backyard
Purple ruffled basil.
This is the Earth Box my dad sent to us. This thing is amazing! I think we already have over a dozen tomatoes on the vine. Good thing as I thought I would have to take out a loan the last time I went produce shopping.
Is anyone else feeling the pinch from your grocery bill? How about the gasoline bill? I have a fairly economical car.....$50 bucks to fill up now, people. FIFTY. Oh sure, I hear people say "Well, we've had it good so far. Just look how much Europe is paying." Hello? They actually use their gas taxes for repairing highways and bridges (Minnesota-remember?) and other things besides just lining politicians pockets. Maybe even heath care.....I am not positive...but don't get me started. I just can't believe we are sitting back and taking this crap from Exxon and the other big oil companies. Yes they pay high taxes. So do we. Add up your sales tax and property tax and income tax sometime and see if you don't reach the same amount. I'm just sayin'.
But this is a knitting and sewing blog, isn't it? :0) How about my finally finished foot stool?
This is mostly Kaffe Fassett fabric, but I have some Amy Butler and other great stuff in here. It is a great way to use up some leftover fabric. Paper pieced and easily done. :0)
