Odds and Ends

I have been busy in the craftroom. This banner is made from a vintage linen. Aren't the colors pretty?
 This is from a cutter scrap quilt that I got at First Monday Trade Days.
 Some vintage looking embroideries that I stitched and framed in hoops.
 Wouldn't they be cute in a nursery? Just listed all these in my Etsy shop. I hope you'll go on over and check it out.
 Some garden photos. This is the first time I've tried growing anything from seeds. It is morning glory and will twine up the metal trellis.
 This is the jasmine right now and it smells delicious!
 Mt first clematis bloom. So excited. I am really loving gardening this year. I still don't know what I'm doing, and I've made lots of mistakes. The bunnies ate all my annuals in the front yard. Darn. Any suggestions for bunny problems? But I'm having so much fun. What's happening in your garden?
 Getting ready for son's college graduation. Concerts and trips. Exciting and busy times. Hope you all are having  good week!

  2. Your banners and kitty embroidery pieces are just adorable, Leslie. And your flowers and vines are really taking off! Spring has just now sprung up north and it will be a while before I see any perennials bloom. Congratulations to your son and enjoy all the celebrations coming up!

  3. Everything you make is so cute, Leslie - you do such a good job. We're getting ready for our son's high school graduation so we're busy getting ready for that. I know his college graduation will be here before we know it, it all goes so fast. Congrats to your son!

  5. Hi Leslie, Love your pretty banners. The colors are cheerful and bright. Darling stitched work too. Your flowers are doing so well and just look at that vine of morning glories. You have a green thumb and I'd say your garden is off to a great start. The clematis is pretty.
    Enjoy the fun of your son's graduation and the trips. Have a great week ahead.

    1. Thanks, Celeste. I love making things from vintage linens. Hopefully the vines will keep growing-I'm a newbie at all the gardening stuff. Hope you have a great week!

  6. Your banners and your embroidery creations are so pretty, Leslie! All of your vines are doing so well. I planted my morning glories, but I think the hail ruined many of the little sprouts.
    Enjoy your week!
