Holy crap is what I have to say about that! I am recovering again from pneumonia and tonsillitis and am kind of hopeful that this is it until next winter when I am going to get every preventative shot known to the medical community! It is all those first grade germs Olivia brings home I am sure.....In between my royal patheticness (not sure if this is a word but I like it anyway) we have been selling girl scout cookies, I have been volunteering as an art teacher at her school and I have been sewing off and on. It just has depended on whether I can get out of bed that day. My cherry trees have buds and I know the warm weather is right around the corner....and by the way, Why is Easter so darn early this year????? I thought I had all this time! Wrong! I need to go to the big city (haha) of Oak Harbor and make an Easter Bunny run......As far as what I have been sewing....I made four big pillows for my couch out of dupioni silk and hand dyed batiks and I have been putting together my shophop quilt and embroidering the names of all the towns on the blocks...It is a big quilt and really bright and fun. I tried to stick with primary colors when making the different blocks. There are some mistakes, I am not using a pattern, just making it up as I go, but I think the charm it has will overrule the boo- boo's....that is me, always the optimist. Andrew, as always has been my little helper....He puts pins back in the pincushion and lays on the quilt blocks with cooper....We have been doing a lot of reading. I read and he talks to me the whole time......I just finished "The Kiterunner"...man, what a book! We are talking heartstrings here...I was surprised a lot at the twists and turns and I read so much that I very seldom am....well, the couch is calling so good night for now!
