Our first potatos


Okay, so its nothing to do with sewing or quilting... but yesterday we pulled up our first few baby potatos from the back yard that Grace and I planted a few months ago. We have never grown spuds before, yes I know they are small but hey! We grew them ourselves!

Okay, back to the sewing!
