the dollar store had mini clay pots three for a dollar. they're the perfect size for windowsills, and they would also make cute gifts or party favors. i learned the hard way that labels will not stick to clay, even if you wrap them with yarn. eventually the water seeps through and the ink bleeds.
the granny square blanket project is still on hold. i've tried to make a handbag, and that didn't turn out the way i expected either, but i was able to reuse the squares to make flower pot coasters.
these will protect the sill from water and probably get bleached by the sun and dirty in the process. i'm ok with that because i love the color they add to the bedroom now.
i'm also happy to have finished a crochet project, and the best part of it all hasn't even grown yet!
this window faces south and gets plenty of sun. my fingers are crossed that all twelve varieties of flowers flourish. it is my dream to have a lush garden full of blossoms. it's looking pretty bare now.
with the kale you see in the big plot i made a quick salad topped with a pansy from the small box.
my first garden meal of 2012, simple but sweet!=)
