Happy Friday!!! This week was a busy one and they all seem to fly by. Spring? It will be here and I will be twice as happy because I had to wait on it. The birds have been busy for weeks building nests. I hope they do not have any eggs in those nests yet. We have 24 degrees this morning and it is snowing. I worked on Josephina this week when I could and she is sitting there this morning waiting for her white dress to be finished so she can play with her paints. I did catch her spilling some paint on her pinafore yesterday so she is sitting in time out now. After she is grungy she will be ready for Ebay. Her dress is almost finished so she should not have to wait long. I love to make the larger bears. They can sit just about anywhere. I hope everyone has a great day and will enjoy the weekend!
Happy Friday! It has been cold this week and I am looking forward to warmer weather and SPRING. I worked on Magdalena and will be taking her to The Boston Road Collection. She was a fun puppy to make. She reminds me of my grand puppy Walter who is a Boston Terrier. He is so sweet. I still have painting to do and when I am sewing I think I should be painting, cleaning out the basement or garage, and there are still boxes to open. I can't imagine it but the other house did have two more rooms than this one does. Now they are here with no place to put them. I could make more shelves and cupboards to hold them. I don't want to make my boys think I have too much junk so I will hold back and limit my "junk" as they call it. My mother is like my boys and has minimal decor. She throws everything away! My father was from Kentucky and oh did he love to keep everything! He would always hide it in the attic of the garage from my mother as he whispered, "You never know when you might need this little ditty." He did have his "little ditty bag" he called it and had pictures of my boys and other things that made him feel good when he looked through it. Off limits to my mother as she thought it was his inhaler he had in there. So when she tells me I have too much "junk" I always tell her to think how I feel when I have two people fighting inside. One telling me to get rid of everything and the other saying I might need that some day. Fred just smiles and tells me I work hard to keep the house looking good. He is the smartest man I know! He learned that strategy almost 23 years ago. Have a great weekend!
Good Monday Morning! I hope everyone is having great spring weather! It has been beautiful here with warm temperatures. I am ready for SPRING! We had a busy weekend. Fred's birthday was Friday and we celebrated the day together. He turned the big 60 and sure doesn't look his age. He is a great husband! I finished the bunny Adeline and listed her on Ebay yesterday. She is the second Easter Bunny I have made this year. Have a sweet week!
We woke up to snow this morning and it is beautiful, peaceful and calm. March is a month of a mixed bag of weather. The report is showing rain tomorrow. I would rather see the snow but I am anxious for spring to see if there are any spring flowers planted in this yard. Birds singing and sun shining in the weeks to come will be so welcome and gives us a new refreshing of life and it's miracles. Our back yard looks so peaceful and calm this morning blanketed in the fresh snow. This is the scene from the window by my sewing machine. There are six deer who frequent the lake sometimes stopping in our yard before running into the woods. I hope everyone is having a great week. Think Spring!!!
