Safe travels Pat and Randy!
Pat and I did a little sewing one day. We made bags--
Pat chose the pink flowers and I the loud paisley. I used mine the next day when we were shopping. There are six pockets on the outside of the bag. We used this tutorial--
We made our bags 4 inches deeper and longer straps plus a little wider. Its an easy pattern and I see more of these bags being made.
Remember I said I had a full load when I went for grandma duty? I took a picture of the back of the pickup before I left for home. My recliner, bike, and lamp aren't in there. Ken brought the car and I packed that full also.
Oh dear, I didn't pack my own toilet paper, that is some I bought to bring home!
Tuesday was pretty depressing after Pat and Randy left and I moped around. Took a nap. Decided that was enough pity party and went to the sewing cave. What do I do when I need cheering up? I played in the scraps! Another Rainbow Scrappy purple block! Then Ken wandered over and asked if I could please patch his favorite jeans, the ones that fit perfect and are comfortable? I still felt like sewing after that and worked on cornerstones for my Two Lips quilt. It may get done this year.
Lots of online discussion on missing Mojos and the possible reasons WHY Mojo leaves. We think its because Mojo loves "shiny new objects" and us without Mojo have been busy finishing UFOs. (Hey, sounds reasonable to me!) I have some new modern bag fabric and liberated some jelly rolls strips--I held them up doing a "Mojo calling dance", rather like calling hogs. Ken is sure the neighbors were watching. In my quest to locate those jelly rolls I also found--more 30's blocks! 83 Broken Dishes blocks!
I am study a different setting for them, I'll show you on my next post.
New numbers for my stash report, I finished the Brown Pyramids--
and I've bought fabric. Even punched buttons today, something I rarely do.
The weather has warmed up and its time to pack the camper. Ken has been doing farmer type things. The fruit trees has blossoming and grass has greened up. I love the smell of fresh turned earth. Do you have a favorite spring smell?
