I had never heard of Google Docs until a couple of days ago when I whined about having problems with Scribd and asked for your help to find a reliable hosting site for my FFF PDF files. So many of you came to my rescue and suggested that I give Google Docs a try. After several attempts at trying to figure out how to upload the file, I finally ‘got it’ and have since replaced the link on my FFF post which you can find HERE.
With your help, I think ‘we’ have found the solution!
You all are the greatest and I am so grateful for your help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
If you happen to try to download the Spring Floral Needle Case using the new link, could you please let me know if you have any problems?
As you can imagine, we’re finding it pretty lonely here without Mac. I think Frankie is feeling lonely as well because since Mac’s passing, he has taken to sleeping in Mac’s bed…something he never did before.
After sorting through, folding and tidying my stash a short while ago, I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t buy any new fabric unless I absolutely needed to.
Well, I absolutely needed to have these!
Not only did I order these fabrics from Busy Thimble, my favorite Maine quilt shop which I wrote about HERE, I also ordered one of my favorite magazines, Primitive Quilts & Projects from Cyndi as well. My other favorite magazine, Quilt Sampler Shop Hop I purchased at the supermarket this morning. Guess what I’ll be taking to bed with me this evening? *wink*
Some time ago during the winter months, Candace from Squash House Quilts sent me some tomato seeds that were developed at Rutgers University.
Traditionally, planting time for tender seedlings and veggies in Canada is no sooner than the third weekend in May. I planted the seeds indoors about two weeks ago and here they are now, happily basking in the sun on the window sill in my dining room.
The tallest one is about 7” high and they are getting stronger every day. Next week one of our friends is coming by with his tiller and not only will he be enlarging our veggie garden area but he is also going to till two new flower beds for me.
So guess what I’ve been doing?
Stalking the nurseries and buying a whole slew of perennials with a few annuals thrown in for color!
We’ve had heavy rain and high winds for the past two days and as a result, the ground is too wet to plant just yet.
The three different varieties of rhubarb that I planted last spring in the herb garden right outside our back door are growing like crazy and I’ll be picking my first batch tomorrow. The chives are about 10” tall and the annual herbs will be planted sometime this week.
Freshly stewed rhubarb on toast for breakfast…not to mention strawberry rhubarb pie…heavenly!
Our local farmer’s market is having it’s annual “rare and unusual” plant sale tomorrow morning so you know where I’ll be!
The rhubarb will have to wait until I get home.
