Aaaack! New Coffee Table Has Become Craft Central!

Which is what happens when you don't have a sewing room or studio. And the natural light that floods this particular corner of the house is wonderful. I'll be adding those journals laying on the table to the Etsy shop - reluctantly, I might add, as I really love that yellow and green paper. The green design is flocked, so it feels like velvet. Very lovely, tactile paper for a journal. The small journals are unlined, so they could be used as a sketchbook. Or a journal. Or both, I suppose. It is also time to start peppers and other long-season warm weather crops. I have not had much luck with peppers for some reason. Tomatoes I can do, so I just don't get the lack of pepper love in the garden. Maybe this will be the year? I've got garlic planted - but I got it in kinda late. My friend Joe gave me some (second-hand) advice for great garlic: Plant on the shortest day of the year, Harvest on the longest day. Well, I only missed it by a few weeks, so my garlic should be ready mid-July. And at the end of July, I will no longer be The Flying Mum. *sniff* I've been thinking about this a lot, and as there are at least two other bloggers using "the flying mum," either in moniker or title form - I feel it's time to start afresh. For the time being, I will stay here, but either the name or location (or maybe both) of this blog will be changing... Gotta go make more stuff! :) -B

We use our dining table for crafts. :)

Our seed catalog just arrived yesterday. Katherine and I want to plant WAY more vegetables than our yard can hold.

So, it is the end of an era. Glad to hear you'll still be blogging under one name or another!

Oh, man, those journals are SO PRETTY!

One year my son grew bell peppers just for fun on our windowsill, and we got about seventy gajillion of them. So the next we tried to repeat our luck, and we got, like, three tiny shriveled bell peppers total on ten plants.
