Remember last week when I met my friend for lunch? The one who is having the baby in May? Here I thought I'd surprise her with that baby outfit, but it was me who was surprised when she handed me a bag with a belated birthday gift and inside I found this darling clutch that she made for me! (And in some of my very favorite fabrics too, I might add). Sooo cute! Thank you Elaine, I love it!
You probably are wondering why I titled this post, "Boring, boring, boring". Well, with our really unusual weather here in Wisconsin, I can't stop my brain from thinking that it's spring and I should be planting instead of sewing which normally I do in May. This whole week we've been having high 70's and 80 weather and just two days ago, I even caught my boys taking an afternoon nap outside. Normally, on March 12th, we'd be shoveling 12 inches of snow! I just stare out the window all day it seems and watch the grass grow and my lilac bush sprout her leaves. I can't help but wonder what will happen if we suddenly go back to our normal March temps!
Let me tell you, those teeny tiny 3.5 inch blocks are no easy task! I think I spent all of 3 days on that first one doing all 12. I was told that sewing the little pieces was easier with a newsprint stabilizer, but little did I know what a pain it would be to take it off:
This pile was from just 8 blocks:
AND......I did make another mug rug just for fun:
So, that's it! The only other thing I have been doing is searching the web to find another Havanese puppy to buy. Think I'm crazy? Who knows? We really think Toby needs a playmate!
