To get a break from the quilts--I made a pincushion out of a peanut butter container. I like to put sand in the cushion, it always feels better to me when sticking the pins in. Our family loves fresh lettuce. It is time to start the planting. My favorite way to grow lettuce is in a pot. This allows you to move it for a longer harvest. The pot is inside on the cold days, outside in the sun on the warm days (60's right now for us), and will let me move it to a shady spot as the temperatures rise into the 80's. Lettuce is a crop that gets very bitter when it is in full sun for the summer. This mix has parsley, spinach, beets (for greens only) and curly red lettuce. Nothing is better than a fresh salad straight from the garder. Others are always commenting how good it looks. This pot is about 6 days old. I start with plastic wrap over the top and remove it as the sprouts grow.
Still working on the hand quilting. I am getting ready to mark the borders.
