If you’re just starting to garden, you might not realize that with a lot of plants, there’s really no reason to buy them. Aloe, succulents and most herbs all grow quickly enough that if you have a friend who has them, they’ll most likely be happy to share. Some of the bigger plants, like lilies, hosta or iris take a little longer to need dividing, but can still be pulled into chunks to give away or to add to new gardens around your home.
So I’ve been trying to keep you guys up to speed as I’ve improved my photography skills with my little point and shoot. Without any doubt, the pictures from recently are much better than the ones I started with last fall, but I’d gotten to a point where I felt like I’d hit a wall.
This week marks the 75th year of Chelsea’s Community Fair. If I’m remembering/hearing the gossip correctly, it’s the longest running fair in Michigan…or the biggest…or something. …I’m not really a “fair person”, can you tell?
New office/sewing space is still kind of a wreck. I’m not making a whole lot of progress because my body has been desperately begging me for sleep, so instead of getting anything done during G’s naps I’ve been taking one myself.
I love making things myself (I’m sure none of you had noticed). Making something by hand means you get to control all aspects of it…the color, the texture, the pattern…but if there’s one thing that I struggle with in making my own things, it’s this: I don’t want them to look like they were made by someone who’d never done this before.
