Blue chick

I finished working on a blue version of my chicks a couple of weeks ago. The blue really goes well with the yellow beak and feet. I'm going to add it as an offical option for the chicks later, but I wanted to debut it on my blog first. I could decide on which photo to use.

  One of these days I'm going to have to try taking group photos of the chicks in my old Easter Basket. Don't forget about Bats Bizarre's Mother's day sale. Use coupon code MOTHERSDAY for 5% off your entire purchase until 5/9/14.

Internet Connection and General Update

The last few days have not been the best for my internet connection. I broke my laptop stick on Saturday and got the replacement today.
 It was kind of nice. I think I'm going to have to take one day a week off from now on.  It's so windy I'm having to write this post outside. My Laptop keeps trying to blow away. Which is very distracting to say the lest.

  I found two hornworms on two of the tomato plants today. It's officially pest season. But there are bunches of ladybugs out there breeding and eating nasties. Too bad they don't eat hornworms, but I guess you can't have everything.   

My black iris about to bloom. And it looks like it will be a double at least! And the rose is going great guns. I don't know if it was this winter's freezing temperatures or the recent rains, but everything's blooming nicely here.

Man I wish this wind would die down.

Shasta Daisy Barrette

Happy Earth Day!

 I was going to post my Shasta Daisy Hair Barrette for sale a few days ago, but my internet wouldn't go along. Not that it wanted to work today either.  Oh well... 

   I modeled the daisy on my mom's Shasta Daisies. The real ones have more petals, but other than that I think they look close. I'm rather proud of myself, I crocheted the flowers and it only took a couple of tries to get the stiches right. If you recall I'm just now learning to crochet.

I may have mentioned this before, but I really like these types of barrettes. I prefer to use it to keep my hair up, but it makes a pretty (and surprisingly secure) ponytail too.
 I have three different barrettes planed, maybe even one that's the back part in different colors without any embellishments.
   I had trouble securing my hair at first, but after a bit of trial and error I learned to put the end of my hair to the right of the other part and that I have to twist my hair to the left when putting it up. I don't know why but it works that way and only that way for me. Before it would fall out of the barrette  very quickly.
Here is a link to the listing:

Cucumbers And Other Garden News

I planted a row of cucumber seeds where the snow peas were this winter. When they didn't come up my mother and I planted two more rows, one of either side of the trellis. Some came up. And then something ate them. And mom's squash seedlings! There were dig marks were it grabbed one that hadn't sprouted yet. I'm thinking it was a skunk.

  I bought seven seedling from the store. (I will be keeping them in pots on a shelf on the porch.) Not long after that Mom noticed some more seedlings coming up. We covered them with chicken wire. They look like convict cucumbers. Wish us luck the wire works.

  I can't believe I had to cover the plants the night before last. I was afraid I was going to lose them all.

    Oh yeah, I also can't believe there are two tomatoes on one of the plants in the garden. Must be the chicken poop.
Happy Easter!
