garden!




Coming to you live from Chiberia! (Zone 5 Chicago)

We had a real heat wave today it reached 0!!!!  woohooo!  We are counting down the days to our last frost free 
date here with anxious feverish anticipation!

Time to play a little and create the 1st handmade for 2014, the word I chose is "Garden", 
Im a gardener and have high hopes for this years vegetable garden and all the goodness and healthy
living it brings to my family.

This quilt is made from cotton scraps (there is one polyesther in there, can you spot it?).  The 
word is pieces of a wide felty yarn used to knit sweaters that I stitched down by hand with 
cotton crochet yarn. 

Hoping 2014 finds you steeped in inspiration to create! ~ Jessie

How original! I am reminded of the charming wrought iron garden gates in downtown Charleston, SC. Hope planting season is not far away

lovely! I like how the words are easy to read but don't overpower the background. and Garden is a great word for this chily time of year - if you think it's cold in Chicago, come up north to Winnipeg! brrrrr!
