I love April 1st! Actually, I probably love April 1st better than most other days of the year, except for (of course) my birthday, Christmas, etc. Know why? First, you have to know that I live in Wisconsin...hello!!! Wisconsin is damn cold! Like, Wisconsin is damn cold probably 9 months out of the year. Seriously! So, even though we probably have better weather in October than we do in the whole month of April, in October you REALLY know that there is only BAD stuff coming whereas on April 1st, you realize the best is yet to come. Get it? Ah-huh! I knew you would!! :D
To celebrate, my wonderful hubby bought me these darling guys to decorate our living room. I had seen them at our speciality grocery store and admired them and he decided that they looked too much like us (big bellies and all) for him not to pass up. Besides, I LOVE tulips!! They stand 18 inches tall.
I must admit that I haven't been sewing much. I did complete a lap sized quilt top this week of this one which I dropped off at the quilters this morning. Dummy me forgot to take a picture. Duh! I think I am losing my mind lately!!! I'm backing it with flannel and having it quilted with wool batting for warmth. I'm thinking it'll really be toasty.
I did get a marvelous creation from Ruthie for a swap, but I really need to take better pics before I show you. Her work is so marvelous.....you MUST see every little stitch. Next time!!
I have been obsessed with this dog thing.....so yesterday, I decided that I need to back off and take a rest. There will always be rescue dogs for adoption and it's only been two weeks today that we lost our Emmy, so what's the rush? All I was doing was scouring the internet every spare moment. Crazy! I do tend to get carried away sometimes........I think I will KNOW when the time is right and when the dog is right. Until then, I need to get myself in order. With that in mind, next I will be working on a commission quilt for a marvelous reader in Norway. It's all drawn so now I just have to choose the right fabrics and get to work. Stay tuned!!!
