around the house

While my sewing machine is on the fritz (I'll be dropping it off Wednesday) I'll share some in progress corners of my home.
Hazel climbing into her big girl chair.

A lovely embroidered alphabet. At $4.99 this was indeed a steal at the Sal's. I have a spot on Hazel's wall.

Among the boxes and randomness. Seeing how much we have makes me grateful but also makes me want to get rid of some things. Clothes, fabric and so many toys Hazel just isn't into.

Still tackling our bedroom. Hung a lantern in the living room. Starting to paint a shelf for H's room. I had grand plans for a garden, but we moved in a bit late and our yard needs so much work it sort of fell to the side. I have a bunch of containers with basil, Swiss chard and the like- that just are growing at a mediocre level.

I am starting to get through some boxes in our bedroom and carve a little corner for sewing. We'll see how it turns out. More soon!

Don't give up on your gardens. This fall dig out your new beds and lasagna mulch them, layers of newspaper and cardboard, as well as leaves.... Then in the spring your new beds will be ready to Grow!

I know how overwhelming it can be to unpack and settle in to a new home especially with a little one! It sounds like you are making good progress! Congrats on your new home!
