I can never tell from year to year if things are really happening at a different time, or if it just feels that way to me because I tend to keep track of time in such a non-calendar referencing kind of way. I think things like "last year when the dandelions bloomed, I already had pea plants on the trellis." Not actually that useful for actually marking time when we have a year like this one, and weather patterns are extreme in all directions. We had the snowiest winter on record, followed now by the wettest spring. I live in an underwater wonderland, people. Anyway, dandelion season has finally arrived, which makes me very hopeful that I can get away with putting tomatoes in the ground sooner rather than later. I might have to defy the Memorial Day frost-free date. Just by a few days. I like to live on the edge.
In other news, wouldn't the accordion box book project from Alphabet Glue be perfect for making some of these? And, don't you really need to make the world's smallest postcards? I'm pretty sure that I do.
Oh, and Craft Hope is starting another project. Security blankets for families affected by the flooding and tornados in the southern U.S. The deadline is a bit tight, because the need is pressing, but it is a lovely effort.
Speaking of efforts to help out down south, Angel and Jenny, the gals behind Stumble and Stitches, are organizing a huge raffle with proceeds going to the Salvation Army disaster relief. You can check out the details here.
