Ma Soeur Amie

March 30, 2011

Hi there, this is Melissa, the older sister of Sarah and Amanda.  I was asked to contribute, and I am so excited!

I just wanted to take the time to introduce myself and let you know some things I have been working on.   I live with my husband, Andrew, and our three doggies-Pee Wee, Kona, and Ginger!  Of course the are the cutest pups around, I will post pictures at a later date!

I spend my time working for a local non-profit in town because I am social worker.  In my spare time I love to read a good book, sew a new project, work on my garden, try out a new recipe, or redecorate a room in my house!

Currently, I am working on a quilt.  As you can see I have 4 squares done.  I have this hanging on my wall.  It is a Fons and Porter product and allows you to visualize your quilt.  The fabric I am using is a Moda Charm Pack called Le Petite Ecole.  It is absolutely adorable, as are all moda fabrics.  I hope to keep you updated on its progress!

I also wanted to share pictures of my first spring garden.  My husband built the base, and we filled it with compost from our local natural gardener.  I have planted: tomatoes, rosemary, squash, green beans, garlic, onions, potatoes, cucumber, lettuce and strawberries.

If they survive, I look forward to cooking with these items.  I have been cooking 2 new recipes a week, so I hope to share soon!

One more thing:  A quick and easy way to update your patio!  I added lights from Target, big bulbs with lots of light.  Then I bought three hanging baskets with beautiful petunias!  It made a world of difference and added some spring into my back yard!

Talk to you soon!
