Growing things


My basil seedlings have taken off with the promise of pesto for summer. Last year's herbs ended up overgrown and under-utilized, but these were started from scratch and it hardly seems worth the effort if not used to the fullest extent possible. I'll be on the lookout for some new basil-y recipes, for sure.
So the squares march on without a hitch. I enjoy having these little daily projects. Any thoughts of having a theme or color scheme have been tossed aside. It's more fun to stitch whatever comes to mind.
A certain little beach hideaway.

Springtime blooms.

Inspiration of the Day: Wonderful mixed-media jewelry book, "Enchanted Adornments", by Cynthia Thornton. This one is a real gem! Highly recommended.
