This is our last month to stay in the warm weather, then it is back to TN to plant the cold weather crops – onions, beets, spinach, and potatoes. It is still cold nights there in March but the days are nice and some crops prefer the cold weather to grow. We also need to feed the berries and fruit so they will get a good start when spring comes. Joe says they will come up many week ends to help plant, weed and harvest this year and if they can we will enlarge some of the smaller gardens so they too can freeze vegetables for winter and of course we will still can as we have in the past. The only thing that could change this is if we sell the farm but so far I can’t even see where the real-estate dealer has even advertised it so how could we sell it?? Here we are getting ready to leave, so today Dad washed the windows. I have been baking things to leave for Becca and I’ll finish that until the freezer is full. I also need to spring clean the house so we will be ready for Shanti’s visit and the house will be ready to leave for the summer. I am finishing up my sewing also.
This is the last dress I will make here. It isn’t quite finished yet, I have the sleeves to sew in, here they are only pinned in. There are to be buttons in the front for decoration and buttons in the back to close the back and it still needs to be hemmed. I think a bow tie would look nice with it also. Shirley, this dress is made from the denim like material you gave me and the white on white cotton you sent, didn’t it work out just perfect for this pattern? Any other sewing I do now will be for Barbie doll for presents for next year for my great grand daughters. I am still knitting mittens for next year and slipper boots as the ones I gave this year are really being used and will need to be replaced next year. Have a great day!!
