Sneak Peek and gardening

I am working on a placemat for the placemat swap sponsored by Krommama at House of Krom. Here is a sneak peek of my project:
I am having a lot of fun with this one! I hope my partner loves it. More pictures of placemats are here on flickr.
Our garden has been taking up a lot of my other time. Here's how it's been growing:
First: Potatoes in tires! This is my husbands experiment. I think it is working but I guess we'll find out later! It is fun to watch, though not a pretty garden picture.

And next are green beans. We always have good luck with those!

Now, I am off to work!

3 x 3 swap blocks

I am participating in Twiddletails 3 x 3 swap. We need to make 16 blocks for May and 16 for June, maybe 16 more for July. I made my May blocks from this cute purse fabric. I paired it with a deep orange dot that looks like an animal print with the purses.
I also used a simple aqua blue floral.
The blocks posted on flickr really look cute and I can't wait to get my blocks. I am not sure how I will use mine but I am looking forward to playing with them. This is my first online swap!
