....here are some yummy fabrics ready to be cut for some spring sewing! don't quite know what to make with them yet-some ideas are starting to form. I'm starting to have a polka dot obsession- this could get serious. Do you have any spring sewing projects started? I found a great tote pattern in Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross - has anybody tried this one? or any projects from this book? I would love to know! - I like hearing honest, real reviews of sewing projects...kind of helps me decide what to pursue.
...here is another photo in the shell series. The sun was just setting when I captured this on film.
and lastly a bucket full of shells and beach glass. I love beach glass so much-the colors and textures. Unfortunately I don't live near any sort of ocean (lots of lakes and rivers) so whenever I visit my sister on the west coast I stock up. Smooth beach rocks are so common there I try to take back as many as I can. To make them black and shiny she rubs them with lavender oil. If you do this and line them up in a simple narrow olive dish you will have a great little display...(plus you have the added bonus of lavender scent). Well if you are into movies don't forget to enjoy the Oscars tomorrow - I know I will be! Happy weekend crafting!
