Happy Monday!! I have one more week before I leave on my fabulous Wisconsin retreat with some friends. I'm busy trying to plan my projects. I find deciding what to sew is the hardest part for me. So much fabric, so many choices. So last week, after reading a blog on minis, I decided I just needed to sit down and sew. And I did. I made a small top with 6" blocks. The colors don't look very true in the picture, unfortunately. I love the border fabric, which (if you look closely you will see what I mean) I did not have enough of for all 4 sides!! vbg.
And while we were driving back from Sunriver last weekend, rather than hexagons, I was finishing an old knitting project. I love making something out of wool and then felting it. So forgiving. (since I'm such a lousy knitter I need all the help I can get!!) I found the most adorable buttons at a sewing/craft show last week. Isn't this adorable?? I can't wait to use it. In fact, I have an appt with my ob/gyn today (tomorrow will be worse---dentist appt!!) so I'm going to transfer my purse contents and use it today! Need to figure out a way to make the day exciting, right?? A new handbag! And aqua blue, too!!
Of course I think the colors are fabulous!
And, lest you think I forgot, here's last week's picture of my darling grandson, Ryan, at the park. He loves pushing the stroller into something to crash it! Such a sweet boy. I don't know what I'll do without him for the week of the retreat. UGH!! I don't think my daughter will let him come with me.
