Here's the Before - July 2010:
|Those rocks were just laying there...not really stacked at all...|
Here's the After - October 2010.. Yes we built those rock walls ourselves and did all of it in just 3 months... WE were INSANE!!!!!
I am not known for my green thumb, by any means.... but I am getting better. I was so worried when we first did all the landscaping. I thought all the plants were going to die... happy to report they are doing great.. I added a few flowers this weekend to add some color to my planters...Can't wait for warmer weather and my tulips & tiger lilies to bloom. Thanks for letting me babble about my yard..
I did get a bit of sewing done... I worked on these early this morning....my Wonky Blocks for the Wonky Bee. Leah's Fabric choices were sooo YUMMY! I loved it!
The patterns were easy to follow...
I also received information tonight about my Partner in the Modern She Made Swap... I am so excited about this swap..This will be my first online swap and I can't wait to make something for her. I sure hope that I have shared enough about me, but just in case...my goal is to share a bit more about myself over the next few weeks..
Here's my first shares... I am 41 years old...and can't believe it! I feel 27 and refuse to believe I am getting older. I am married to my best friend. We have been together since 2000, but only married since 2009... He took awhile to ask... *giggle* I work full time as a High Voltage Substation Electrician and am around GUYS all day long...so when I get home.. I let my hair down and be a girl, We have three Furry Children that we cherish...2 Crazy Kitties (Arnold & Lexie) and one Bouncy Boxer named Jasmine. They make cameo appearances on the blog, but most often you'll see Arnold sneaking into my quilting pictures...He loves to hang out in my sewing cave with me.
Okay...that's a bit for me tonight.... What are You???? Tell me TWO things about yourself that We don't know yet????
I've linked up with What a Hoot, for the Monday BOM's Away Linky Party..Check it out when you can....
