Grow food from scraps!

A short time ago I saw a link that a blogger had written suggesting that we all try and grow food from scraps (containing a seed or stem of some sort) I thought I would try the most basic and simple and went for the tomato. I was sceptical I must admit, this all self sufficiency is all new to me and so I decided to humour myself and give it a go! here’s the link for my original blog with a step by step tutorial of how I got my results and below you can see the progress of the little tykes trying REALLY trying hard to stand tall 🙂 stay posted for the next update as they are transferred to the Vega patch!

Fabric swatches

I LOVE fabric swatches, only thing is I never know what to do with them! I found so many great ideas and then I couldn’t choose! do I do garlands? as my friend suggested… Do I make a fabric book cover? do I make bunting or cushions for my new cook out cabin? The choices are endless! what would you do with these beautiful fabric swatches? send us some pics and I will share with our beautiful creative readers 🙂 I’ll keep you updated when I decide on what I’m gonna do with them.
