Monday Makers! #4

Hi there!
Welcome to Monday Makers! #4.

I wasn't well last week so I haven't done any sewing or quilting. I am just hoping that with the weather getting warmer, all this cold and flu will leave me and my family alone for at least six months!
The weather was beautiful yesterday so we did some gardening on the plot we rent at the community garden which is just a kilometre away from our house. We have been renting this plot for almost a year now but only today we had a chance to go and prepare the dirt for planting.
 Spring has sprung!
While we were removing the grass and weed on our plot, my son enjoyed digging up some dirt in a neighbouring plot :)
 Following "the daddy" to the compost!
 Taking a little rest after some hard work :)

Now to Monday Makers!
I am making some simple quilted zipper pouches today. I have had some lovely Michael Miller fabric. Because the fabrics' width is quite narrow I've decided to turn them into zipper pouches. By this way, I will be utilising the stray zippers I have.
 I have already prepared the ends of my first zipper. I love this coral. So bright and cheerful.

Now it is your time to show us what you are making today!
Your project can be anything you start on that Monday as long as it makes you move and be active and creative: a new quilt, a knitting project, scrap booking, cross-stitching, baking-we don't mind yummy recipes!, a gardening project, painting your house!, tidying up the pantry!...This is your Monday and you are the maker of the day!

  1. I hope you have fun making your quilted zipper pouches! The gardening fun looks great; we are just preparing for fall here and pulling up our summer crops and planting the next season. I am looking forward to the chard, kale, an arugula... yum!

  2. You're headed into spring and garden planting - we're heading into fall and garden harvesting, lol. I have 16 nice ripe tomatoes in the kitchen ready to chop up for soup, and tonight we'll harvest what will be close to the last of the cherry tomatoes (which will get chopped and frozen for soup). We only have a very small garden, but the tomatoes did extremely well this year (last year they were pretty much a write-off, sadly). It looks like you have a very able helper in your young'un - he seems to have some mad digging skillz, LOLOL! ;)

    Pretty fabrics for your zipper pouches - the perfect use for stray zippers :D Later today (or perhaps tomorrow, depending on timing) I'll post my finish from Week 3, and my start for Week 4 - I just put a pumpkin cheesecake in the oven and have to go make a big pot of soup for tonight - THEN I can go back downstairs to play :D Mondays are always a great day for me - I get to start something new and fun, and our oldest son comes for supper - YAY MONDAY!

  3. what a helper you got! sweet!

  4. Oh these will be so pretty! Hope you're doing better!

  5. Your Monday Makers linky is a great idea! Good luck with growing produce in your plot this year :)
