…because otherwise I don’t have all that much to show for my week! Last weekend I was busy with my motorcycle license (yep – you read that right). In Ontario, we have graduated licensing and as it’s been almost 5 years since I passed my M2 test, it was time to take my M2 exit test to get my full M license. Now I can continue to drive a Vespa indefinitely :).
And I’m probably the only graduate from last weekend whose first thought was – oh great! Now I can go back to sewing! The home dec project is still underway and I think there are only two words for this project – patience and pins.
I do love that paisley, though, and I’m hoping by this time next week I’ll be able to show you a home dec finish.
And now for the garden!
I love the Square Foot Gardening method and purchased the book last year (the author is Mel Bartholomew). I used to participate in a community garden, which was really nice except that there was a lot of shade on my assigned plot and with having to walk/bike/drive several blocks (I know – it’s a hard life!) I seemed to manage to grow more weeds than anything else. This year, I decided my approach should be to increase my gardening space in my own yard as I don’t seem to have a problem puttering around the yard in the evening, even though I often forgot to take myself over to the plot.
The tomatoes seem happy enough.
And a couple of weeks ago, I came across these head/foot boards on Kijiji (total score!).
After some putting some elbow grease into scraping down with a wire brush, priming with a spray primer and then spray painting a nice fresh lilac, this is what the headboard looks like.
I can’t seem to get a picture that shows how nice the purple really is, but trust me – it’s definitely lilac :). And I think it will provide a nice support for any plants that manage to come up once I solve the problem of The Dog running through the garden! I’ll share the footboard once it’s complete as well – maybe if we get some sunshine this weekend.
And the last thing to show for my week is one more (little) mushroom to join the other two from before :).
Not much to show for the week at all :).
