Something Blue!

Last weekend my beautiful friend got married!  It was an absolutely gorgeous wedding.
I had the honor of being a bridesmaid, and while we were waiting before the ceremony, the Bride asked me if I'd sew the wedding date in blue into the lining of her dress!  This was her "something blue"  I thought that was such a neat idea, and it was so special that she trusted me enough to do this.

Garden is in!

It's been raining here, but we still managed to build and plant the garden!
I've read the you can use newspaper as weed mats, so gave it a try.  I just lined the bottom of the garden with it and added top soil, then garden soil.  Hopefully it works!  We'll see :)  I probably should have put more layers of it down... I just used what we had.

Finished getting it ready in the dark.  The dogs had a lot of fun running through it... eek! Just what I feared.

I planted the garden this morning, and we added a little fence... hoping to keep the dogs out.  We have mostly tomatoes, jalapenos, and bell peppers planted (Hubby was thinking salsa).  It's a bit over crowded right now, but I'll hopefully be transplanting some of the plants next week.  I didn't have room to plant the seeds we picked out... still brain storming on that :)

I'm finally back from school, after a roughly 29 hour adventure.  Today I'm catching up on housework and LOTS of laundry.  Slowly unpacking... all that fun stuff.
I can't wait to get started back at sewing, but I have a couple things to take care of first.  Such as starting a garden!  We've tried gardening before with not much luck, and it's later in the season than I would have ideally started. So, we're doing a small raised garden bed, and only starting a couple things from seed.
I'm pretty excited to get everything set up (hopefully tonight!) and hopefully my ever so helpful dogs won't find this garden to be a play zone.  We're putting up a knee high fencing around it, but they'll need some training to stay out!

If this year of gardening is a success, we'll probably add another area next year, but that's getting ahead of myself :)

Summer & Twitter!

I'm almost done with my semester!  I've been so deprived of sewing and all things crafty while away.  (while, I suppose I'm being crafty in different ways... you have to be when everything for school had to fit into 2 suitcases & a carry on)

I'll be back in 2 1/2 weeks, and posting lots of projects this summer!  I just signed up for Twitter, yes, I am behind the times, so if you want updates on new postings, follow me at @SeWhatHappening  Yup, had to ditch a couple of letters to make the name fit (so it isn't a typo, I combined the two "w"s and got rid of the "s" )

Projects I'm planning on right away are more t-shirt reconstructions!  Also, I'll probably post about the baby projects and quiet books.  Fun stuff :)

Now, I just have to get through my 8 remaining finals first....
