The kids planted the rice at school April 28 (coincidentally, my older sister’s birthday) and it is growing quite well in flats in the school yard. The seedlings are about 6-8 inches high and we will plant them in the field next week, June 6.
Fine young daughter running to place second…..
fine young son with some friends
finally where would we be without scraps. My good friend BLOOMING (she’s in my blogroll) was kind enough to send me some scraps from her bag making. I applied some newly learned FRENCH SEAM awareness…. (like I had never even heard of them until recently) to some patchwork and look what I got!!!!!!!!!
“your beauty is beyond compare
with flaming locks of auburn hair
with ivory skin and eyes of emeral green
your smile is like a breath of spring
your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene.”
