The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 222 - In the garden

Today we were all outside in the garden getting our veggie patch ready and planting our spring crop. Mr 365 crafty is not particularly crafty but he is good in the garden. He prepared the garden beds for us and did some seed planting. Now I have to nurture the seeds.

I took Juliet to a birthday party this morning and I thought I would share her outfit. She has such a unique fashion sense I think she should start her own fashion blog. At the moment she is into layering. She is wearing a long sleeved tshirt, dress she bought in Thailand, skirt I made her from an old sweater, leggings, socks, shoes she bought with her own money and on op shopped ballet top. Accessories are a headband and a bangle collection. Whew!

When I got home Mr 365 crafty was hard at work in the garden enjoying the sunshine.

I found these old wood offcuts in our shed a while ago, left behind by the previous owners, and decided to make some garden signs to label the vegetables that look similar.

Liam and I painted them. We were having a lovely quiet time together, he loves it when he has me all to himself.

Here are the garden beds.

Liam looking rather relaxed having some time with Mum to himself. It's rare to capture him on camera smiling.

Then the other two discovered where we were. They joined in and everyone mixed and played with paint for well over an hour.

Mr D woke up from his nap and watched from the safety of his car. One minute they are babies, the next they are behind the wheel of a car. Who would believe it?

More mess making.....

Labels are ready now.
 Mr 365 crafty makes an appearance. Planting seeds. :-)

Seeds have been planted. We have basil, cucumber, zucchini, capsicum, oregano, spinach, rocket and 2 types of tomato. Very exciting!  While all this activity was going on we saw a beautiful wedge tailed eagle flying in the sky above us. This is a pretty rare sighting and one of my favourite birds to watch in the sky.

After dinner we went for a walk in our front paddock and did a little search for echidnas in the bush out the back.  No luck!

Here is Ms J in about her 10th outfit for the day. :-) What a wonderful day, reminding me once again how beautiful life can be.


  1. Thanks for sharing Sharon. Your journey takes me back and reminds me of my early married life in the country. I love your stories. Juliet reminds me of my daughter Em who also had her own unique dress sense and still does.

  2. You really had such a wonderful day, and I'm glad for you.

    Ms.J. does indeed need her own fashion blog. She's quite the little fashionista, and seems to choose well.

  3. Thankyou ladies. That's lovely Mezzy. I'm sure Juliet will always have her own style. She certainly has her own mind! :-)

    Thanks Joyce :-) Hope you like the skirt she made today.
