A lesson in patience...

Last April I bought a little kit to grow tomatoes. Those of you who know me well know that I do NOT have a green thumb and every plant I try to take care of ends up dead. I started my little baby tomatoes from seed on the kitchen windowsill, then moved them to a bigger pot in the dining room to get more sun. From there I planted them outside next to the front porch. I have been tending to them everyday and to my surprise, they stayed alive! Now today, 4 1/2 months after I started growing them, I made my first meal with the tomatoes that I grew! I also grew the basil in the pasta. My husband is always telling me to be patient, and growing a plant from seed definitely helps with that. I didn't give up...and it paid off! :)

New Fabric

I have been working on several new crinkle toys. Take a look around my shop to see them, and keep an eye out...more new patterns are on the way in the next few days! There is even a turkey one coming for Thanksgiving. :)
