Stitchin', Knittin' & Sproutin'

Fairly productive weekend around here. Below is the progress I've made on House #4 on Carriage House Samplings Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. Next we have one full alien face on Stitch N Bitch's Alien Illusion scarf. This is the front:
Here's the back:
Wicked cool, no? And below you see the sproutin' portion of this post. Last weekend the spousal unit and I planted watermelon seeds in two cups. They sprouted yesterday:

We started four more cups of seeds on Sunday. We also put out a bell pepper plant, two Better Boy tomato plants, some basil, flat leaf Italian parsley, and I planted two lavendar plants last weekend. The parsley was supposed to have been cilantro but I wasn't paying attention and got home only to discover my mistake. Plan to get some Roma tomato plants this week and also want to start some zucchini seeds.

Yay! I found your blog and I love it! You do such beautiful work. My mother did tons of cross stitch but I never had the patience for it. You houses look beautiful. :) I'm going to add you to bloglines right now!

I had to comment right back. You grew up in Memphis and moved to Florida... I did the opposite! Born in Gainesville, grew up in Lakeland, FL. Now I live in Lakeland, TN! How weird is that? Love your WIPs, btw!
