Hip Hip Hurrah - One year today!


So today IS the day. I've telephoned my sweet son and wished him Happy Birthday. He and his wife were headed off to watch an English Football (soccer) match, telecast to an Irish pub in Washington, D.C.

And. . . . . I have drawn a name of one of my nice readers and it is,




Judith is a friend from Crazy Exchange, so I already have her address in Hoorn. This is quite fun! Judith was the first blogger from the Netherlands that I began reading almost a year ago, so this is fitting. Parcel coming your way, Judith.

Stephanie mentioned in her comment our most peculiar weather and that it has been. Yesterday began grey and rather dreary. I was sitting in my sewing room and not paying attention, but eventually looked out and guess what I saw? Snow! Now really, it is almost April and it is not supposed to snow. But alas.

It's mostly all gone this morning, but the weatherman says we may get more before the day is over. All the while he continues to say that spring is coming and as soon as next week, we might get temperatures into the mid to high 50's. Shall I hold my breath?

And yes, I have done some sewing. The dear favorite, White Chocolate continues to need my attention. Will I ever finish?






Making a crazy exchange item - can't really show you, but here's a hint:






And a WIP which I came across last night:






I have spent a fair amount of time looking for the right fabrics and then designing the borders I need to make for two RR's. Will post photos when I get those together.
Happy Saturday, 29 March. Happy Blogging to you all.
