On Saturday morning I sewed this overstuffed burlap garden pillow. I had made the yo-yos and English Paper Pieced hexagon flowers ahead of time. These were my first time sewing EPP hexagons. I've been trying a lot of new things lately as you will see further down. This is also my entry in Quilt Sandwich Fabrics' "Briar Rose Challenge."

Other than that, we seeded a very large vegetable garden plot at our community garden and got finished before a good soaking rain came. I also seeded and planted bulbs for the flower gardens around the house. I have put all the seed packs into a notebook and plan to keep notes on how things are growing and producing so I have a reference for next year.
Happy Victoria Day! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
