Is it spring yet?


Posted on March 28th, by Amy in Uncategorized. 1 Comment

This is the question I keep getting from my girls. They love riding bikes and running around outside – and being stuck inside again is hard.

We have had a busy week and I can’t believe it has been a week since I posted last – oops! We were able to play in the fresh air a couple of afternoons, but the snow is still on the sidewalks in places and not child friendly yet. But we are expecting more snow tonight and it is cold outside today – 20’s.

This is good reason to sew! Ella has been learning a bit here and there, and tonight we will be working from a pattern to make a simple purse with some good friends. And hopefully Ella and I will be able to make a dress for her as well – tomorrow. I will post pictures when we have them completed.

I have been quilting a bit too. My borders have gone on, so now I just need to clean the kitchen floor to be able to baste, then quilt. I am planning to follow instructions that I found on crazy mom quilts blog. I have tried variations of this in the past – on the table, so I am going to go all the way this time and hopefully be happy with the results. I will let you know how it goes.

Have a good weekend!

I almost forgot that I listed some new bracelets this week in my etsy shop – great items for spring!

    So neat that you and your girl are sewing together! My mom made most of my clothes when I was small-but I never learned how to sew. I hope spring isn’t far away for you!
