Garden Post Update and Coming Attractions

Updated garden photos...not the best picture, but can you see how well the plants are doing?  I've only lost one out of the 22 I bought originally and the cucumbers are growing so fast that I actually think I see new growth every day.

Coming soon....

Plastic canvas butterflies for sale as soon as I figure out how to make them...portion of the proceeds to go to pediatric cancer research.

Stay tuned to see if I am able to transfer my cross stitch skills to canvas!




  1. Chelle,
    This is a nice idea to sell such butterflies.
    And I'm working in pediatric cancer research right now ;-)

  2. As it turns out, the butterflies are REALLY hard! I had no idea! But someone who knows plastic canvas looked at the pattern for me and she said it was a very difficult pattern to start with.

    I went online last night and found the cancer ribbon and it looks like a much simpler pattern. I think if I practice with that one first, maybe I can then figure out how to do the butterflies. I really want to do butterflies to honor Juliana, so I either need to figure out how to do the ones on the pattern you see, or find an easier pattern.

    Thanks for commenting! :o)
