it’s cold

Calling for a frost tonight. Damnit. I covered my tomatoes. I will risk the rest mostly because I can’t find anything else to cover the plants unless I use sheets or something and it is pouring rain and super muddy. It really chaps my hide that there is one blue bag–screws up the whole aesthetic. But I haven’t bought plastic bags in years so it was a scavenger hunt to see what I could find in the garage. I was simultaneously annoyed and impressed that we don’t have any plastic bags under the roof.

The good news is the spinach, peas, radish, potatoes, beets, onions, rhubarb and lettuce are celebrating.

Instead of thinking about the fact that it effing snowed this morning and the current temperature is 39 degrees and I am wearing a scarf, I’d rather think about the babe gifts I made last weekend. More onesies for my procreating friends.

I am obsessed and I think I am getting better at designs and such. But that chicken needs a little outline to her comb and feet. The first one I made was better. I picked the wrong fabric; it shouldn’t have any white spaces. I think I’ll add some red thready outline and it’ll work. I am quite pleased with the ice cream cone, modeled after a really expensive kid shirt I saw in a catalog. It was a bitch but turned out cuter than a bug’s ear.

    Forget this weather! I am over it, the snow on the mountains in Red Lodge looks like it is March.

    On to the onesies…..TOO cute Nici, I love all of them! AND, oh by the way, NOTHING is cuter than Bug’s ear.

    xoxo, Mom

    I laughed when I saw the garden only because it sorta looks like you’re hoping the lawnchairs don’t freeze.

    Those onezies are so adorable. The ice cream cone is absolutely the cutest thing. Another item to add to the menu of the creations for the sewing team of GramT/GrammaJ. We are all going to be rich. XOXO J

    We are having your opposite weather. We just ended a heat wave. Temps were in the high 90’s with terrible humidity. It felt like it was 100+ with the heat index.

    Cute appliques. You sure are truckin’ along over there.

    i personally like the “one blue bag,” as a design element, and i am impressed that you couldn’t find enough plastic bags. it is hard to imagine that you have snow. seriously, it is 90 here.

    i love your onesie designs. i especially like the ice cream. those fabrics are wonderful. they seem old fashioned, like pieces of an old quilt i have.
