May already 1/2 gone...

Where did it run off to?

I haven't planted ANYTHING at all this year yet. I may not. The quilting bug seems well-entrenched, along with some knitting that I started because I wanted to make something "girly" for Nemo, and there was this cute white and purple and pink yarn at the store. Usually by this time of year I have put out a bunch of "will die soon" annuals and a tomato plant and a pepper or something at least.

I think the mexican bean beetles did me in last year. The bean plants were doing SO well, and then almost overnight they were totally denuded of vegetation. I was teh sad. Not that I am overfond of fresh beans - I actually prefer the ones in a can, sick puppy that I am - but I hate to have my garden produce destroyed by BUGS. Icky nasty disgusting BUGS.

So anyhow, here is a photopiccy of part of little Nemo's quilt that is pieced, laying on my ironing board.
I am having a bit of an issue with getting the pinwheels to line up the way I want them to do - but in the end, it is for a baby, and babies barf and poo and do all kinds of icky messy things on their blankets and such, so I will probably just end up sewing it all together and hoping for the best.
