For Mothers Day, in the hours I had in between work shifts, (I work overnights and day shifts on the weekend), all I wanted was some uninterrupted craft time, tea and the television hooked back up so I could watch a weeks worth of Coronation Street. Since I'm a true multi-tasker, I took this as my time to sew. Recently I saw a lovely pattern for felt toadstools, and deciding that I HAD to have them, (I mean, who doesn't need felt toadstools?), I got out the felt and in between sips of tea, and British melodrama, enjoyed a morning of stitching!
Here are my toadstools, along with a bunny that I finished on a long car drive last week!
I will post a toadstool tutorial later on this week! They are so fun to make...I foresee a rainbow of toadstools in our near future.
Of course Ruby wanted to get in on the sewing fun...here she is sewing a mouse for herself...
She hasn't shown much interest in sewing, so I was elated that she wanted to make something for herself...oh, and I love the out of whack stitches, makes it totally endearing!!!
And today...oh glorious day. The snow has stopped and the sun is shining bright! That means I can get back outside and plant these lovely perrenials I was gifted with yesterday, (I helped to divide a garden that was "bursting" with perrenials)!!!! Oh JOY!!!!
