1 Million Pillowcases Challenge

Two weeks ago we went on vacation and traveled all the way around Lake Michigan, spending a few days in Wisconsin, a couple days near Mackinaw, Michigan and then visiting my family.  When we visit my family, we almost always work on a project of some sort.  This time, my mom said that she wanted to use some of her fabric so I suggested pillowcases.  We made 22 pillow cases while we were there and they were donated to the 1 Million Pillowcases Challenge.  Nearly 500,000 pillowcases have been donated so far this year and then given to local charities.

Here is a link to the website:

Weeds and Plants

We returned to our garden after being out of town for a few weekends and found it full of weeds again!  We cleared about a third of it and planted some vegetables this weekend.  

These are blue potatoes that our garden neighbor gave to us so we planted a row of them.  

We also planted tomatoes and green and red peppers.

Naomi's Art Smock

Naomi likes art projects so I made her this little art smock.  It is from the book One Yard Wonders.  I hope that she will get a lot of use out of it.
