stormy weather

No one likes a mix of snow and rain! Especially in April!!!


My solution? A box from the french bakery.....


Add coffee and the crossword.....


And some pretty spring fabric.....


And you have a happy solution to dreary weather!

next plan....a blanket for my bed

Resolution for (the rest of) April: I will not go to the mall. Or any big box stores. Except to buy food if absolutely neccessary.
What does this mean? Well, my plan to buy a spring duvet cover (mine is dark brown and heavy, not so good in an unairconditioned house for summer) may be foiled. BUT I just might be inspired to make myself a (tied not quilted) blanket not unlike this one from craftopia.

earring is a funny word to type

Last Monday, Meg and I headed to Workshop for a little, well, workshop on making earrings with their most excellent Bridget of Wine on Sundays. Sooo fun! I made about 10 pairs, but something sad happened to my camera (general uncooperativeness- it shuts itself off every time I try to take a picture) so I only have a couple of pictures:This is the paper box I made to put a pair for Katherine in.
And here they are- maybe a bit hard to see, my screen is dark, so I have trouble telling.
