In the Meantime...

My stash of Simple Abundance hasn't arrived yet; the shop I ordered from it still awaiting its in the meantime, I'm occupying myself with other projects.

I thought I'd start Imagine, the Schnibbles kit I won from Carrie a while back. I've got everything I need, including plenty of backing left over from Catch a Falling Star, and batting from Sassafras.
I've also been spending a lot of time in the garden as the weather warms up (or at least, brightens up, it's quite cold today). Daylight savings makes it easier to be outside later too.

My snow peas finally flowered, and there are little peas all over the plants; they got so tall they are now visible from the street, and anyone walking past can quite easily help themselves...

The gorgeous fruit blossoms have now turned into little apricots.

The broad beans are finally appearing; if I'd known how big the plants were going to get, I wouldn't have planted quite so many!

My dwarf beans have sprouted; they're quite a bit bigger than I expected.

The corn plants have sprouted too...

And my favourite, the lavender that is in bloom all around my yard; the bees are loving it, but they don't appreciate being disturbed!

I love Peace on Earth and Schnibble patterns, what a great combo! Can't wait to see pics of this quilt top done up. Your garden pics are wonderful, the lavender is so pretty.
