Odds & Sods

Sew Modern Bee - August Blocks

This month I was asked to make these pinwheel blocks for one of my bees. I love the colours in them, and I hope her son (the intended recipient) enjoys his quilt!

In other news, my garden is going crazy!  This summer marks our first year, in our first house.  One thing I was intent on having was a vegetable garden.  Well, it seems I went a little nuts (If you agree that 18 tomato plants is a little much!) and my garden is bursting at the seams.  We even have a renegade pumpkin vine that is taking over the nearby lilac bush.

This picture was taken last week, and since then, the pumpkin vine has reached the top of the bush/tree and is reaching for something else to grab onto.  For now, we are just curious to see how far it gets, but as soon as it starts moving in on my laundry line we might have to figure something else out.

Also last week, I harvested some carrots.  I picked up carrot seeds from The Cottage Gardener in the spring and am thrilled with the variety of colours that I got from the aptly named "Coloured Carrot Mix."  Who knew carrots came in anything other than orange!
