This is beautiful!  I have a weakness for happy rainbows and would love to have something like this rug in my presence at all times.

Oh, this rocks!  I just love it.

This turned out so well.  I just started embroidering, and I hope that I'll be as talented as you with a few months' practice!

This is so funny and well made.  Great job!

This turned out wonderfully!  And now I'm craving Sticky Rice sushi.

Thank you for the kind words!  My parents have lived in this house for about 25 years (longer than I've been alive), so they have had a lot of time to cultivate a beautiful garden and expand it to the very edges of the property line.  I know I'll miss all the space and good soil when I am living on my own!

I think the faceless look is just right for the shells of former human beings that are the Little Sisters.  I love Bioshock, and I love your amigurumi interpretation of these characters.  Are you planning to make any others, like Splicers?

What a neat idea!  I'll have to try this out.  Your potted plants are also lovely.

This is really splendid.  You obviously put a lot of thought into this wonderful project.

For the first time last year, my dad and I decided to do a bit more with a raised garden bed located in the alley behind our house.  We grew tomatoes and cutting flowers for vase arrangements.  It was a tremendous success; though I didn't plant the tomato seeds and flower plants until July, we had tomatoes to eat and flowers to decorate the house until late September. 

This year, we are more ambitious.  We decided to buy vegetables as plants rather than seeds this year, but there is more variety: four kinds of tomatoes ("Better Boy," "Early Girl," "Big Beefsteak," and "Roma"), three kinds of sweet bell peppers (yellow, red, and green), jalapeo peppers, and broccoli.  The flowers we got include snapdragons, zinnias, African daisies, celosia, Gerbera daisies, and an unidentified plant that had a tag that simply read "annual" (helpful!).  We are also growing strawberries for the first time and have added to our usual herb collection, though this is in the backyard (where the main garden is located).

Dad and I spent the whole of today preparing and planting our vegetable and cutting flower garden.  I've added some photos to show our progress.  You may click each photo to view a larger size at the image hosting site.

Strawberries! (We didn't bother to buy a special strawberry pot, opting instead to use some old clay pots that were living by the garden shed.)

I hope you enjoy looking at our little garden bed as much as my family and I do!  We're eager to have flower arrangements to pretty up our home within the next few days, and all spring and summer long.
