In my garden

Update: more photos taken in my garden June 7, 2009

A new sign added to my garden welcoming anyone who visits.

A new bunny added to the garden (there is always room for more).

This little gnome is an old friend in my garden.

And.....I have little tiny green beginnings of tomatoes growing on the tomato plants. I am really looking forward to picking full-size red tomatoes from my garden later this summer.


I'm spending more time in my garden these days than in my sewing room...
but the garden is pretty and relaxing and I enjoy sitting outside on the
front step - that's where I took these photos.

more of little Rosie....

Here's another photo of Rosie.

An updated photo of the kittens taken two days ago.
They are so cute!

Mittens (my friend Paul's cat) just had a litter of kittens and one of these darling little cats is coming home to live with me in a few weeks. I haven't decided which one yet - I'd like to take them all.

These are recent quilt shop purchases of some fat quarters and spools of embroidery thread.
Don't have any immediate plans for these things yet - it's just nice to add them to my stash.

Mother's Day

In memory of my mom who passed away eight years ago.

This photo of her was taken when she was about 18 years old. She'd probably hate that I'm posting it - but it is my favourite photo of her.

Miss you Mom.

These two little rabbits have joined my collection
just because they make me smile.

What I like best about my cats ...

Teddy's freckled nose and whiskers.

Sydney's eyes.

Backyard assembly ... from box to bbq

Now that the warm weather is seemingly here to stay, we decided it was time to get a new bbq.

Chris, with help from Jim and supervision from Sarah, put it together for us on Sunday. We had a great steak dinner afterwards. No pictures of that .... guess we were too busy eating.

Sophie absolutely
adores her Daddy,
so I just had to post
this photo of the two
of them.
