I think this is a ranunculus? But it doesn't really look like one and the ones I planted were white?

Another sewing machine project. These burp cloths are two-sided, with quilting cotton on one side and super soft flannel on the other. I got 1/4 yard of most quilting fabrics, and picked up a couple fat quarters to round out the selection. I got baby blue and light pink flannel, a yard each. A 1/4 of fabric gave me two burp cloths of each fabric.
Simply cut 18" of each cloth, sew together inside out leaving a hole for turning, trim the edges, flip right side out, and topstitch, making sure to sew closed the turning hole.

The kitchen nursery has sprouted. My husband can't wait to get this off of the countertop! I'm growing the following from seed:
- nasturtium (Target)
- marigold (Target)
- cucumber (Home Depot, all seeds are saved from last year)
- various herbs (Home Depot, Target and Bountiful Gardens)
- poblano peppers (Bountiful Gardens)
- jalepeno peppers (Bountiful Gardens)
- tomatillo (Bountiful Gardens)
- beefsteak tomatoes (American Meadows, free with the purchase of bulbs from last fall)
Greenhouse light and seed starting mat are from Amazon.com. The seeds are living in plastic nursery containers I've saved containers saved and thouroughly washed from yogurt and pudding. I also used Pringles single-serve containers and chopped off plastic water bottles, but those aren't pictured. Now for the bulbs a-blooming in my front bed! I am so very happy with all that planning and work done last fall. There's been a consistent bloom, it's beautiful and smells wonderful! Carnegie HyacinthMore Joan of Arc Crocuses. These are dying quickly though.
