It's been awhile

It's been awhile since my last post, but I have been keeping busy. I am back to work every Friday at Kindred Spirits, and I just found out that the owner, the manager, and one of the housekeepers are all pregnant! That means I am knitting and sewing baby things. Hopefully one of the babies will be a girl. I am going to make a little hat and maybe booties to go with this sweater. After this outfit is done I will make one for a boy, and by then I will know the sex of at least 2 of the babies, so I will know what else to knit.

I finished a couple of little cross stitch projects. These are going to be made into Christmas tree ornaments.

On the sewing/quilting front I have started a long term hexagon project

These flying geese blocks are my May blocks for Block Lotto. These would make a great border for a quilt.

This quilt has been on our bed for several years now, and I just realized that I didn't have a picture of it.
We have started planting our vegetable garden. So far we have planted onions, spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, beets, peas, turnips, carrots, parsnips, and radishes. I have peppers and tomatoes started in the house, and they are coming along nicely

Our azalea bush is in blossom, isn't it pretty?
