I woke up this morning after a dreary, drowsy Sunday and checked my Facebook status. Quietly my friend Cynthia Frenette (illustrator, graphic designer extraordinaire and all around DIYer) posted that she likes Hawthorne Threads. Hmm... I click on the link AND WOW! First of all you have to understand that I love paper and fabric like nobody's business. Every time I come across Cosmo Cricket paper, I admit it, I splurge. I can't help myself. I really can't.
"Early bird elements"-Paper
So there I am totally speechless as I oogle over all the patterns and design, then I stopped breathing all together when I realized they have Cosmo Cricket FABRIC!!! Eeek!
The first harvest from our garden: baby red potatoes, crisp carrots and my favourite (especially for colour) candy striped beets. I always like to plant something a little different. A couple of years ago I planted apple cucumbers! I grew so many I took bag after bag to the food bank! There are only so many apple cucumbers, as yummy as they may be, one family can consume.
