I'm growing a pineapple!

Haven't told you about my pineapple i don't think have i ? Well i have tried planting the tops before but with no luck, so back in the beginning of the summer i think it was, i thought i would have another go, but this time i dried it out first, then planted it, and look !! The leaves with brown bits on are the old leaves but the new ones are all shooting up the middle. I don't know how far it will go and i think they get very large, but i had to have ago. Anyone else grown one?

One of my favourite times, a quiet cuppa and a look through the latest CL mag!

Heres Alfie, he's needlefelted and ready to go in my shop later along with some new houses, i have been busy. I have been down on hours at work just lately so have been using the time to sew and felt. Although i have a sewing room upstairs i much prefer to sit at the kitchen table and sew, i think i like to be near the kettle and the food!!! I can either listen to music or watch/listen to the tv. I am very happy just to sit and create and the time goes really fast, i can often be still sitting there at 1am in the morning!!!

Middle of the week already, hope you're all having a good one!! x x x

Alfie is such a cutie! I am in love.

I have heard that heard that you can grow the tops of pineapples and have thought about having a go. But was always just a bit skeptical as to whether it would work or not. I might just have a go at some point now. lol.

I didnt know you could do this with Pineapple's!! I have only done this with Carrots (at infant school)! Alfie is adorable. I bet you look really content in you kitchen sewing away. xxxxx

What a cutie.
some man was in our local paper a while ago for growing a pineapple and it had a pineapple on it, I know that sounds silly but it takes a few years before they produce fruit.

Have a good weekend

Hello. The pineapple is great. I have never tried to grow one before. Might give that a go.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.
