Hoping to Grow...........

I like growing things (Plants, vegetables, children! ha ha), but right now I am hoping to ‘grow my blog’ .  So I am posting a link about The small blog meet at Lilly’s quilts.

Small Blog Meet

This seems to be a way of meeting other people who have less than 50 followers of their blog – I currently have just 4, and so have set myself the target of finding 2 more followers by this time next week!
I am going to do as she suggests.... "go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time.  And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs".
While we are on the subject of growing, rather than sewing...  I wanted to tell people about the wonderful St Ann’s allotments in Nottingham.  We went there for an open heritage day, and they were spectacular.  I would never have imagined that behind some of the most deprived parts of our city, there was the most vast space to grow things.  Not only fruit and veg, there were little straw and clay barns to meet others, and we went to an impromptu gig in one of these.  We made popcorn over a bonfire.

We also made ‘seed bombs’ for guerrilla gardening (you put seeds into a mixture of soil and clay, dry them, and then drop them into random places that you feel would benefit from some flowers next season, and  hope that this spreads some happiness).  We have yet to decide where to put ours.

My next blog will be about sewing (promise).... in fact I am working on a peg bag for my friend's birthday. 


  1. I'll have to check out the Small Blog Meet too, who knows where it will lead us.
    I love the idea of the Seed Bombs!

  2. Thanks for your comment, see you at the Small blog meet x
