Yes I actually have something other than weeds growing in my garden, since nothing was happening for a very long time! But just like Libby said, "before you know it, everything will be flourishing right before your very eyes". Everything except the carrots and cucumbers - those seeds did not produce a single green sprout! But that made more room for the mutant crazy tomatoes.
I have had a similar struggle with my Kwik Scrappy Star blocks. It was such an interesting process working on this pattern, because the block seams are not straight lines and this caused my traditional quilter brain lots of anxiety. It just wasn't working out in my mind. I wrote on the blog last week that I contacted the pattern designer for reassurance, and she told me I was doing everything right and to keep on going. So I did. This is how the seam edges look, and then you match them to another seam and sew them together. I had to even up the edges to a straight line since I couldn't cope otherwise!! I was anxious, working slowly, re-reading the instructions frequently, and not liking the project, until the first block came together and looked great. And then I loved it!
There are 6 gold star blocks and 6 black star blocks in this layout. I am almost ready to sew the top together!
See...if I am just patient, and do the right thing, everything comes together - with gardens and quilts!
I am hoping that another project I am working on will come together too - come visit my blog on the weekend to see how my new fabric boxes are working out - or not!
