Completion

Ah, the satisfaction of completing a few things! What a great feeling!
I love the Spring time, the warm weather, and the flowers (but not the allergies that go with them!) Spring is rejuvenating, and brings lots of project ideas to mind. I've been practicing self control with beginning new things, and instead have been trying to wrap some projects up.
In the last two weeks, I've been quite busy. I've been working on my quilt. I can't wait for it to be done, just to keep it from hanging over my head any longer. I'm tired of it being around 'to-do'. I'm tired of breaking sewing machine needles on it too. That's another story.
I finished up a commissioned afghan for a baby girl. It's a pattern I've never done before, and think it turned out nicely.

I also finished up cropping the aquarium trip. It's now in an album awaiting the arrival of other 2007 happenings.

I also began, and completed a project in one weekend! YammaDaddy and I doubled the size of my veggie garden, and lined it with stone. We have 10 plants - 3 tomatoes, 3 okra, 2 squash, cucumber and cantaloupe. We'll see how they do when the summer heat hits.

I've also planted a hibiscus, a calla lily, and 36 petunias. Hope they all live! Here it the hibiscus. I love the colors! I'll post a pic of the calla lily when I can get a good one. The shots I took don't do them justice!

The baby blanket is quite lovely. Good luck with the hibiscus. Japanese beetles killed the one I had.
