Craft Weekend and April Fool's Day....uh oh!

It is 10:50 a.m. and I have made my bed, washed up and gotten dressed, the girls are all up and about their business and I ran the dishwasher which I forgot to turn on last night.  I had a nice breakfast of 2 English muffins with butter and honey and a dish of fresh strawberries and my vitamins.  The kitchen is all cleaned up, the rest of the groceries are put away, hand washed a few dishes and cleaned the sink and dishpan.  I got the mail and I am ready to CRAFT!!!!!
 Okay, it is now  12:37 and I have ironed a lot of fat quarters and scraps of fabric and have begun cutting pieces.......I need a break...the ironing and the bending over the cutting mat is taking a toll! LOL! 
Now it is 4:20 p.m. and I have cut out almost all of the pieces and I have sewn some together...little tiny pieces.......so cute....this is fun but very time consuming and a back killer!  I'm glad the sewing is starting.....that shouldn't be as painful! LOL!  It is so gratifying though to create!  The 'cat girls' go to bed at 3:00 p.m. (basement) so I don't need to be so fearful of the iron cord and Miss Peeps climbing all over everything when I am measuring and/or cutting.  I had a little snack after they went to bed and now I am piecing things together............
Well, I think that's about all the sewing I'll be doing for today.  Now it's time for jammies
 some supper and to bed with some handwork and t.v. watching.  I did get outside for a bit today because it was just too beautiful........here's a view...........not sure what this white blooming tree is  does anyone know?  It's in my back 40...........
The red buds and dogwoods are starting to bloom................
I hope you had a beautiful Spring day where you are!
Happy Trails!

  1. Looks springy there!! You need a higher cutting table one you can sit at! Maybe that would help with the back strain :(

  4. Hi Sam :)) Those photos are so gorgeous though I have no clue what that tree is, it reminds me of the apple and cherry blossom trees my parents had in their backyard that made me sneeze oh so much! I have a few more buds on my basil, but nothing close to spring yet! :) I'm so glad you had a wonderful craft day, I'm craving English muffins now!

    1. I didn't make these but they;re still darn good! I use them for egg sandwiches too for breakfast. I hope it's a fruit tree! That would be wonderful!
