OK, what's going on ?? SPRING OR ?? what???? Even in Northern Manitoba is seriously melting.. apparently they have almost no snow left... that is so unusual not in moons that, that has happened , that isn't good sign for what's ahead, No snow in the bushes means trouble...hot hot hot summer??? Now for other stuff...lol... I am going to try busting my stash, that make take a long long long time..what was I thinking..lol...started a few projects , my dear sister called and said she knew I just could make her something so she took a picture (at her work) and sent it via email..well I knew I had come across these little buggers on the net somewhere and Bingo,,,found the pattern lol..she wanted me to make her the fingers mitts for when she nukes her meal at work, she walks to the caf and walks back to her office and it's hot hot hot...of course one of her co-worker has this cute things and well long story short, I made her a pair and of course myself, but now she would like a few more for at home...lol... Princess we call her...reason for it...but we love her anyways... I also finished working on the Pat Sloan's Spring Fling... can't post pics yet as we have to send out end of next week... shh .. also purchased a book called "FARMER'S WIFE" and started to make a few of the blocks...this is quite interesting story and I am going to pluck away at it here and there, not rushing this one , it's just a challenge and maybe have it finished (top) in a year or so...lol...so off I go to sew more mitts..also had a wonderful evening at the guild, I should take the camera, all the ladies who participated in the bargello workshop brought their placemats and wow, all different colors all made them look awesome..great job ladies.... so for now, Ciao, Adios, Salute, Night, Bonjours mes amis..
