You need them today - winter seems to have returned, although tomorrow is the first day of spring. I had to unpack my winter coat again! Although yesterday, I saw a gal go into the Dairy Queen in the shortest shorts I've ever seen in my life. Typical Michigander.
Since it's chilly, I pulled out a project that requires the iron.
Nothing like summer colors and a hot iron on a cold winter day. I started re-making my Whirly Twirly Garden. I didn't have any fabrics I liked, so I went shopping at my best friend's sewing studio and found a perfect charm pack. But because you can't wash a charm pack to get the sizing out, it doesn't want to stick as well as it should, so I'm ironing then stitching one piece at a time. And LOVING it.
I added a new page, Useful Links, at the top. if you have any to add feel free to let me know! They're not tutorials to specific projects, but rather different techniques. I've used quite a few of them. I'm sure I'll be adding more as I find them!
It feels good to be working with fabric again, I've been in such a slump the past couple of weeks. Lots of trouble getting to sleep, then sleeping for 12 hours. I'm almost regretting giving mum my exercise bike, as I really need to exercise, but she's doing so well now that I couldn't think of taking it back! I'll just go up and down the stairs as many times as I can.
I hope you're enjoying your weekend, too -
