Sew What? Seeds of my Sky Garden!

Seeds of contentment.. I love having a garden, but 2 large dogs and a small back yard means you have to get creative about gardening.  I have some tomatoes on the vines and the peppers are starting to produce YUMMY! I know I won't be able to wait for them to ripen...have to have a mess of green fried tomatoes!  I have some scrap wood to make a trellis for the green beans and cucumbers to climb (down) on. So far, the dogs have shown no interest in the plants.  I put petunias on top of the tomatoes so that they would show over the top of the fence and look pretty.

whole cloth quilted tablecloth

This was the best I could do taking pictures of the texture of this tablecloth.
I think you can get an idea of what is there from these.  There is nothing but Yards and yards of thread! I have done lots of stippling quilting and felt really comfortable with that, but I've been wanting to do some more creative things with it too.  I tried to practice these feathers on scrap fabric, but they need room to flow, so I found this fabric on sale and decided to just play around with it.  It is the perfect size for my table, so even tho it isn't perfectly quilted, it will be useful.

Gettin' on with my Red Kitchen

I finished the spice/meds cabinet and my curtains yesterday. Yipee! The only thing left is the blocks I want to make to hang on the walls... Here are the cabinet and the curtains along with the table cloth and the valance.  I promised Mom I would post pics on her blog too.  She doesn't like it when I just put a link to my blog because it takes too long to download 2 web pages.
