Hi there!


Welcome to my blog! I love to cook, sew, craft, take photos and garden. And my kitty, of course. Thanks for stopping by to read my musings on these hobbies - hope you'll share some of yours too!

  • I keep having these #handmadeholiday posts because it's really this long holiday season...where I don't always manage to make or give gifts until after Christmas!  Totoro, Harry Potter, Futurama, and Star Wars coffee tumblers going out to help caffeinate the world! #silhouettecameo
  • hmmm....I'd just been looking for a baby pine to try a bonsai experiment and in fact just went to the nursery the other day to look for just this plant!  No luck while shopping, but at my work parking lot I saw this sprout coming up under a big tree.  The landscaping crew hadn't cut it down yet (they trim all of the trees so I know they'd take it out). Guess who is coming home with me?
  • It's January - meaning it's time to think about garden seeds! Would anybody like to participate in a pen pal seed exchange?  I'd like to set up a group - if so, let me know and I will set it up!  You can list what you would like to contribute and anything you'd hope to get.  Does not have to be seed you saved yourself, could be a seed packet you'd like to share.  I'm thinking in home-gardener quantities. 
For instance, we have to trade:
Jimmy Nardello peppers
sweet mini peppers
kabocha squash (from really yummy kabocha)
heirloom tomatoes
glass gem corn

Note:  I'd be interested in setting up a plant start exchange too!  We could get together in a Bay Area park and trade starts. (I love starting plants but we have very limited space.)
  • Catching up with more #handmadeholiday presents - I made two of these Star Wars duvet covers for nephews.  Hm, do I want one for myself? :) #sewing #diy #starwars
