I have been remiss ...

I know. But this weather- how can I sit and type when it is so lovely outside? I keep thinking about stopping for a minute to write about what goes on, but then I get distracted by just doing, and another day gets away.
A quick list:
1. We are approaching camper completion and looking forward to a fun summer.
In the first shot, hubby is sitting where the cabinets are now. We have really worked hard on this little old Shasta!
2. I planted lettuce, spinach, and kale in the garden, and my herbs have come back from previous years.
3. We adopted six new chicks.
4. The baby turned 2!
Her hospital photo & the morning of her second birthday. Love. Love. Love.
5. I am sewing bra #2 as part of the Ooh La La Lingerie Sew Along
I added straps. This is my reversible muslin in cotton. It turned out like a vintage bikini top, so I think I will make a few in fun cotton prints for summer. 
Ignore the spot (you know where!) I was trying to wash away marking pen. :) Now I am sewing a fan-dancy one in silk.
6. I got a ukulele, and my amazingly talented musician sister gave me my first lesson from NYC via Skype. Technology can be a p.i.t.a., but it's pretty cool when sisters can plot their ukulele based Heart cover band via video conference. I don't know why my sis wants me though- she is Anne and Nancy all rolled up into one!
 So, that's what goes on around here. Can you tell I delight in the little things? Life is good, and I am thankful!

How is spring in your neck of the woods? Are you a Heart fan? Would you rather have Anne's voice, or Nancy's rockin' acoustic skills?

  1. Your bikini top is adorable too! :D I love the fabric you used for your muslin. Too cute!

    Heart is pretty awesome. I love sister bands. :) Good luck with the uke!


Thanks for stopping at Farmhouse Garden! I love to hear from you...
