Much Too Nice to Stay Inside!
I think that the leather will be more practical than crochet for handles and such.
Tessie is trying to commander the body of the purse for a sleeping bag... Not going to happen!
I did a couple of trays of starter plants for new succulents. Don't ask the names. I can't remember and they long ago lost the tags that they came with.
All I know is... If you stick them in dirt with a little rooting hormone powder, they will sprout!
The Baked Bean Sedum in this pot just naturally spreads by putting out roots on it's stems. I don't have to do anything at all, but cut them off and shove them in some dirt.
I learned that part from Walter's dad. He had the stuff growing all over his yard.
Again, I don't remember the name of this one, but if the larger leaves fall off or are cut and lay in the dirt, they will form the cute little plants that you see on the cut end of the two leaves to the left.
This is why I like succulents. Easy to grow and very hard to kill!
I will probably take a couple more leaves off of the big piece and shove the remainder into a pot. That also will grow a new plant.
Now that it is warming up outside, I am coming indoors to start mini work and/or crocheting the purse again. I am thinking minis first and then as a reward, crochet. That way I will get more of the cottage finished.
I am getting the urge to start something new! I have still not figured out how to get the photos of the house onto my Pinterest site. I have tried several times to no avail. I am now wondering if the one time that I tried and gave up and erased everything did something to block it. Oh well... I tried.
See you tomorrow.
