A Weekend Re-Cap

In the last few days over the weekend we saw a basketball game...


Attended an ice skating birthday party...

the birthday boy gets advise from his hockey goalie playing Uncle Kyle

and T gets a skating lesson from Uncle Evan who still plays hockey


I made a clutch for a bride...


with gold lining...


My pattern for the clutch can be purchased on Craftsy.
I finished the solid blocks for the Virtual Quilting Bee that Amy is hosting...


and we prepared the soil and planted our tomato plants.
Here's a list of the tomato plants that we are going to grow this year.
1. Giant Belgium Heirloom Pink
2. Missouri Pink Love Apple Heirloom
3. Soldaki Pink Heirloom...because everyone needs a Polish tomato in their garden
4. Martino's Roma Heirloom
5. Big Beef Beefsteak Hybrid
6. Carmelo French Hybrid Red
7. Yellow Perfection Heirloom
8. Emerald Apple Heirloom Yellow/Green
9. Green Zebra Heirloom Yellow/Green
10. Black Krim Heirloom Dark Red/Black
11. Kellogs Breakfast Heirloom Orange {the nursery man said if you grow only one tomato, try this one. This will be a first for us}
12. Black Seaman Heirloom Dark Red/Black
13. Sweet Olive Hybrid Red grape tomato

I'll be keeping the stats for the garden, just like I did last year. We still have lots more to get ready and plant but our local nursery had their tomato extravaganza last weekend so I bought the starter plants when the selection was the best.

Eek my seedlings have just popped their heads out. I wasn't able to find any of the tomatoes on the list you gave me last year. Neither here nor in the uk. So back with the tried and tested

How exciting, a fabulous weekend, love the clutch and the blocks, and yummy tomato plants- i am itching to get started on mine, but i'm being patient and waiting a couple of weeks until we're in the new place. I wonder if number 11 actually tast like Cornflakes?? :o)

I'm beginning to suspect that you might just be wonder woman! Go on, admit it, you're running around in a cape and red underwear aren't you!
