Poppin’ In

Hey Kids.  Just a quickie update.  It’s still really busy around here — I’m hoping it will start to slow down a bit next week.  I’ve barely been home this week, but I’m making the most of the time I am here.

Thimbleanna: Gardening

I was a machine tonight — I think you would have been proud LOL.  I rushed home from work after yoga and in three hours I made two different casseroles, planted 2 flats of begonias, ate dinner with hubby (it was quick), ran to get a haircut, and packed for market.  (Oh yes, boys and girls, it’s quilt market week! )  And the best part is that I did it all in my yoga pants.  I blame them for my increased productivity!

Thimbleanna: Gardening

Sadly, there’s tons of yard work left.  I’m hoping to get to it sometime next week.  Most of the beds look like my happy little oregano plant (it survived the harsh winter!) above — full of leaves and weeds.  Oh well, it will all get done eventually.

And, just for documentation purposes, I thought I’d show you my little garden . Another moment of productivity — weeded (it was full), three tomatoes, three squash and lots of zinnia seeds planted and covered in an hour.  Aren’t gardens fun?  So full of hope and promise.  Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t.  I’m hoping for a no hail spring this year.  Oh, and no yoga pants were involved. There may or may not have been jammy pants at 7 a.m. in the morning though.

I’m looking forward to my little market break. Anything you want to see while I’m gone?

    I’m imagining you speeding around like the Tasmanian Devil (remember Looney Toons?) getting everything done before you leave. Good work TD! No flower planting here just yet. It still freezes sometimes at night. Bah! Have fun at market!!
    Love those boots!

    Oh, I envy you going to market! On the home front, we had a bad snow storm for Mother’s Day! The snow is mostly gone now and I would love to set out some flowers and perhaps a tomato plant or two. Just as soon as I can figure out how to keep the bunnies from eating them for breakfast!

  16. Wow girl, you’re like a well oiled machine! Super woman! As for what I was to see from market…that would be…I want to see it all! Take tons of pictures and have tons of fun!

    My “garden” consists of two large containers on my deck that I grow lettuce in—it’s surprising how many salads I can get out of such a small area. I’m going to plant them Friday. It’s been too cold and rainy here in Iowa. After this long, hard winter, please show us some color from quilt market, and maybe some soft, romantic florals. I remember seeing THE selvedge dress on your blog—I don’t know how you are going to top that!

  19. Love those wellies and aren’t you clever! That’s a lot to get done. And I pretty well live in yoga pants. Don’t do yoga, but sure do like the pants! Have fun at market!

  20. What a woman!!!! Love the gumbies! Have fun at market – new fabrics please and your usual round of the stands…..thank you! x

  21. Gosh! Did you take any pills to increase diligence? LOL – looks like you have enough yard work to do when you get back from the Quilt Market, I hope you’ll have time, garden work is (like patchwork) a great yoga :)

    I’d love to see some before/after pictures of your garden. I just bought 16 sorts of veggies and herbs to plant and I’ve been presowing the seeds inside. The icelandic spring is too cold to plant directly to the beds.

    Have fun in Quilt Market, I really miss you from blogland

    take care

  22. I need to get me some yoga pants! I am happy to hear you are off to market. I got to attend TNNA (yarn market) last weekend in Indy. Such a fun break from real life. have a delightful time.

  23. MARKET????!!!! Have the BEST time ever! Work your fanny off and have fun doing it! ;p

    p.s. don’t forget to instagram some photos while there. ;p

  24. Anna, I’m disappointed in you. You mean you didn’t knit a couple of pairs of socks and piece a baby quilt in your spare time?

  25. no opportunity to be productive outside thursday or friday…its freezing! saturday doesnt look much better…nice timing to escape indoors!

  26. Anna I forgot to tell you how AWESOME your boots are, look just like your Union Jack blocks :) – mine are just boring black, which is very unlike me!

  27. wow i loved reading this post. your photos are beautiful and i am now inspired to get out there and weed!! excited to see what kind of fruit you get from your plants. way to be a star and do everything at once! amazing. :)

  28. “Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t.” LOL. That’s a good attitude. I get a little more mad than that when it doesn’t work out!
