As you can see, I am stitching some blocks for my quilt today. I worked at the store this morning and finally got to the sewing machine this afternoon. We had a front move through and it has turned very windy. I always find very windy days unsettling. I feel restless, and a bit edgy. My adored dogs are right on top of me, so I cannot move from the machine without stepping on one. I love them but sometimes I need some breathing room. Our “cozy cottage” gets a bit too cozy at times.
As you can see, I succumbed to the lure of chocolate. I have to say, Dove dark chocolate bars are pretty fantastic. If you haven’t tried one, you should. In the upper right hand corner of this photo is my Lambchop puppet. (I grew up on Shari Lewis.) A couple of years back I was down in Florida for an extended time. My Dad was recovering from serious surgery and my sister and I ran into a Cracker Barrel restaurant to pick something up and, lo and behold, there was my beloved Lambchop. She was purchased immediately and much to my mother’s chagrin and my sister’s laughter, began to talk to everyone. A lot. This went on for a few days until Lambchop and I got it all out of our system(s). I’m still crazy about her and I’m glad she watches over my sewing area.
A belated Happy First Day of Spring to everyone!
