Grow little garden!

My tomatoes are coming along great guns! The plants aren't very big, but there are lots of big green tomatoes! The chillis are going red, the snow peas that died have self seeded and there are tiny seedlings growing in that pot, which now also houses one of the little tomato seedlings that survived the dog pee attack! 
There is a second capsicum plant that is actually growing capsicum, rather than banana peppers, and the chameleon rose has 3 more buds! 


I wasn't overly fond of the dining chairs we bought second hand. They were in good condition, but not very pretty. 
It's taken me almost a year to get to this stage, but I finally took to them with a screw driver and pliers, then a staple gun. I am very happy with the results! 

Removing staples 


After and before... 

Not quite finished here... 

I think they look amazing! 

And the Orange table cloth isn't bad ;)

This morning I've been working on another project that seems to have been going on forever, the Prayer Board. 

I've printed, traced, ironed, cut, re-cut and placed... Next will be a touch of glue and a LOT of handsewing, followed by affixing fabric to board! 

I'm still working on exactly where the words should sit. 

The prayers will be written on cards and put in yellow envelops like the one in the picture above. They will be pegged with pink pegs that are attached to the board by magnet. 
I'm really excited to get this finished! It'll add colour to the room as well as reminding us to pray. 

I've also attached the hooks back onto the wall hanger thing that I painted yellow. I believe now I need to get some green things and a drill so it can be screwed into the wall!

Sneaky plants!

My plants are sneaky! Here's what they were hiding yesterday. 


(This plant came from the same punnet..) 

I spy a carrot! 

And a tiny little tomato!

Table and chairs...

An orange square and a yellow square- table cloths! 

Rectangles for couch cushions! 

6 pink linen squares - cloth serviettes! 

Four "floral" polyester rectangles - cushions for the outdoor setting! 

With a few 1/2 days coming up at work, I can see a lot of projects being finished very soon! 

This morning in my garden..

The basil is flowering

The oregano wants a bigger pot

The baby spinach is doing it's own thing

Little baby capsicum!

Tomatoes are waiting to be planted 

Tomatoes are aurviving dog wee...
