Guess what?!!? I had my first baby romaine lettuce harvest last week. Anyone know a better way to wash off pesticides besides doing it leaf-by-leaf? I got to use my new salad spinner, too. It was given to me by a freecycler last year. Still in the box and she said she never used it! This is a huge 16" frying pan full of lettuce after I washed it.
A few other pics from my garden:
My planters now look like this:
As opposed to a couple weeks ago:
I spent an entire evening re-organized my DMC floss. I had one of those double-sided cases for hotwheels/matchbox cars (another Freecycle "gift") so I put one color of each floss in it. I don't know who said all the colors fit into one case... I'm here to say that they don't and some of my bobbins weren't even full. So if they were full skeins wound onto bobbins, all the colors definitely wouldn't fit. I went to find another case at Walmart last night and *none* to be found. Darn it all.
Duplicates are still in the larger bobbin cases, but I went from 11 down to about 5. I consolidated some of my stash into one large 124qt bin. The rest is still packed in boxes. I loved looking at all the kits I have accumulated, mostly Lorri Birmingham and Oriental designs. I've updated my multiply Kit album so I know what I have. I also did some wish browsing on ABC Stitch Therapy and updated my wishlist. The ones I liked are way beyond my price range and very beautiful. Maybe someday. *dreamy look*
I started a new project on a neat looking sparkly white fabric:
