Sew I've Been Gardening...


I know, it's early for corn, but I managed to coax these two ears of corn from the scrap bin... my scrap bin is abundant and fertile! Still in their husks these ears of corn are fresh and sweet and one hundred percent my own scheme... I thunk them up all by myself and then got busy whipping them out for Maria's kitchen. Ever since I made the first batch of fabric food I have been meaning to add to her pantry. Where does the time go? I had to go through months and months of archives to find this post about the toast and berries, lettuce and peas I sowed sewed for her. She really does cook every day and except for two strawberries that the cats whisked away, all of the food is still fresh.


For Mother's Day Maria chose these strawberries for her Tutu, and she also asked me to make peas and carrots for her grandma. I hope it doesn't take me another year to make some toast, more corn and berries and maybe cheese slices for Ruth's play pantry. In my ambitious dreams I am sending a basket of produce to Jordan, and Amira, to Emma, to Lucas and baby Ethan, to Dominic and his cute sister Marissa.
