So. Here we are again, a week later. It's Thursday, right? Whatever...
I do know we are in a new month. March seems like it lasted for an entire year.
The birthday boy, Levi, from a week ago. Everyone else seems totally engaged in this photo op, right?
Our friend, Amy, makes beautiful bouquets and has been offering them twice a week, for pickup at the farm where she grows them. On Saturday afternoon we were feeling the need to just get out of the house, because...
So we drove to the farm and picked up two bouquets. One for us...
With that being said, here is our weekly roundup of memes, with a couple of other things thrown in for good measure.
Last Saturday, Charlotte and I took an online class from the Neon Tea Party (highly recommended) on how to make pompons and tassels. Ideally, we would have been sitting side by side as we took the class. But we were in different locations, although we were able to text throughout the class.
Speaking of notes, Mark and I both received some mail this week. What a treat!
Remember the last two weeks where I have given you ideas for a wine tour and vacation plans? This is the plan for the coming month.
I saw this on my friend Elizabeth's Instagram feed, from a movie theater in Minneapolis. One of my favorite movie quotes ever, from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. You will only be familiar with it if you have watched the movie through all the credits at the end.
I used a collage app to see what a quilt would look like. I think I'd like to make a real quilt with this block.
Karen posted my Kaleidoskop quilt in the lower left.
Elizabeth from @bittercandydesign posted Animal Planet, always a favorite.
Diana also included Animal Planet in her massive collage.
There is currently a sew-along running, for anyone interested in making the Sew Together Bag. I have made nearly ten of them in the past, but decided it might be a fun break from trying to figure out what to do next. So I ambitiously cut out the fabric for four of them. This one will be for me.
However, then the CDC decided that we all should be wearing face masks when we go out, so I have set the bag making aside to focus on making masks, just for the family at this point. And turns out I have plenty of elastic to make enough for everyone in the family.
I considered using this fabric for the masks, but decided it would be put to better use as the backing for a 2020 quilt. #donottouchyour face
If you are still here, wow. Thanks for hanging in.This morning, I drank my coffee from this mug and said a prayer for everyone in NYC.
I'll end with these two thoughts.
Stay safe. Stay in place.
