Carrying on.......

Not much is happening here today. The snow has finally melted in the back yard but the ground is too wet and mushy to walk on and I saw my first robin yesterday. So things are looking up:) The sun is shining but it's a bit nippy temperature wise.

I got my hair cut this morning. I wear it short...wash and wear. I was shocked at how much hair was on the ground when the stylist had finished. Where did it all come from...eeek. I feel much lighter now.

We have a new piece of deco in the sewing room.....

Inside there is a first aid kit......with thingies for when I do myself an injury.
I sorted some of my stuff yesterday and found some fabric that I bought at least 15 years ago. It was a warehouse sale for a company that was closing down. It was a bargain at 3 yards for $1.00 so naturally I had to get 3 yards. The pattern is called Garden Market.
I was going to make some aprons but obviously I didn't:) The pic doesn't show the colour very well. It's really much nicer and brighter.

I do have something in mind for it.

While I was looking for ideas I found a blog called "A Spoonful of Sugar" which had a tutorial for a fabric I thought it was a great idea and so easy to make......reversible, washable and easy to store away.

As I said, not much happening....:)

Take care.
