After our very successful flag-waving in April, we now invite you to the peace of your garden and whole different colour pallette.

Our theme "Pick It From the Garden in May" is a chance for us to let our imaginations run wild.

For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is spring... flowers are beginning to appear at last. For those of you in the southern hemisphere it is fall and harvest time... so for all of us wherever we live, the garden offers unlimited inspiration for squares.

Do you love doing flowers??? Are you more inspired by fruits and veggies?? Do you like the ‘critters’ in your garden (caterpillars, butterflies, bugs)?.Does May make you think of dancing around a May-pole?? Are you a ‘Plain Jane’ square-maker??

Whatever you are... let the colours of your garden be your inspiration... lavenders, purples, yellows, oranges, reds, pinks... there’s no end to what we can do.

Once again, we are asking that you post photos of your squares, both in the Photo section and here in this discussion, to inspire us all

Mary Lokken has volunteered to set up a Flickr page for us where all the photos can be assembled. The address is

Let’s make May a "blooming good" month... I can’t wait to see what you creative souls come up with.

Here are some of the 103 Plain Jane's and stripes I found waiting for me at church this morning.  They were left by an anonymous donor, so I can't even say thank you. Most of them are in wonderful garden colours so I think they deserve a place in this challenge.

My first garden square: Green beans


It's my square for today, so you can read the pattern here 


Here are some of my May Flowers Squares for the "Pick it from the Garden" Challenge.

I really had fun playing around with making the crocheted flowers. The small white one's were made in baby yarn and boy were they hard to do! The baby yarn was so soft it was hard to get a grip on and hard to sew on to the square without distorting the flower shape. I did enjoy the challenge though.

I also had fun adapting the pattern I used to make a smaller flower so I could do the double layered flower on the purple square, and so I could fit 4 on the cream square.

Looking forward to trying some more "Garden" themed squares shortly.

I call these two "Night Garden" and "Rainbow Garden".  If we had a wee bit more magic in this world, wouldn't Sunflowers become Starflowers at night and wouldn't rainbows become blossoms when they fade?


I took my ladybugs out for some fresh air :)))
