Now that his new bedroom is big enough for all of his stuff, my new room is all for me, me, me, me, me! I found my new desk on Craigslist and it's a lot bigger than my old one, and finally I'm putting my Eames shell chair to good use, I swear it's the most comfortable desk chair ever! My desk looks out onto a large wraparound deck and the beautiful trees and hills beyond.
This hutch barely squeezed into my new room! There were literally just inches to spare in getting it around the corner! This is one of my favourite pieces of furniture and I would have been heartbroken if it hadn't fit. But it did, and doesn;t it look great?! :)

Next, we have the DQS9 quilt and goodies (camera strapcover & scrappy mug rug) that I made. They went all the way to the East Coast and I am pleased to report that my partner loved her package of goodies. Yay!

I've been saving up all of the extras (and there is a LOT) to try my hand at canning this year. Canning has always been something that I have wanted to try, but did not have anyone to learn from. Yes, I know that I can just get a book but I would much rather learn first hand from someone who knows what they're doing. Lucky for me I recently discovered West Marin Free Skool. A kind local volunteer is graciously holding a class on canning both savory and sweet foods! I'm crossing my fingers that my blackberries will be put to good use!

My veggie garden May 22, 2010
My veggie garden June 12, 2010
When I first planted the garden it looked so little and forlorn, would it ever grow?! I'm not known for my patience and would look out at it every morning looking for any small sign of growth. While watering, I'd inspect every little leaf, pull invading weeds and talk encouragingly at them begging them to stay live and grow, grow, grow!! It looks like all of my begging paid off!
We have just started to harvest peas and courgettes. Our little local newspaper has a competition every year for biggest courgette (aka zucchini), our biggest is about 12inches so far so we have high hopes. The tomatoes are ripening on the vine, little cobs of corn have emerged and the cauliflower has just started to take off. I am so excited by new garden that I may just have to give weekly updates :)

Here are some of the fruits of my labour! I made these squares for a partner in the Freedom Block Bee. We are required to make one block but heck, I made three!
Also DQS9 sign ups are now open so if you haven't signed up already, hop to it because I know that it fills up fast!
In Gratitude for all that our Veterans and their families have given us,

These are my guys and in the distance you can see North Beach which runs along the outer edge of Pt. Reyes Seashore.
After the lighthouse - a quick trip to Drakes Beach. Unfortunately it was much to Windy for us to stay for long.

Needless to say, this was a great process for me and now I am making another!
