I’ve been working every night on the afghan.  I don’t know who I thought I was making the thing for.  It must have been the Jolly Green Giant.  It is so so long, it takes about an hour to stitch one row.  But with working on it every night it is getting wider.  I hope to finish before to long, not only because I’m looking forward to moving on to the next unfinished project, but because when it warms up it will be to hot to work with it.

The Chia herbs are doing great.  I’m still not sure what the sponage like peat mix is, but the baggies on top are making a difference.  Basically all they are doing is making a small green house for each plant.  It’s a great idea for starting any seeds and I may try it on some more in the next week or two.

making_needlework_accessoriesI like doing crafts, especially needle work, almost as much as I like gardening.  They help to keep me busy during the colder months when there isn’t much gardening happening.

My only problem with crafts are that I usually have several going at one time.  While this is great for variety, I don’t feel like I’m getting anything done.

My solution, I’ve decided to have a craft of the month.  For the rest of this month I’ll be working on finishing an afghan I started a year ago. 

Hopefully I’ll finish it and move on to the next project.
