This past weekend I was able to get back in the sewing/craft room a little bit. My, oh my, do I miss it when I can’t make something with my hands. It’s a definite stress relief for me.
I saw this raw edge scarf tutorial over at Cluck Cluck Sew last fall and finally had time to do something with it. I made two scarves. I think next time I’ll make them a little longer but am loving them and they are oh, so very easy. Unbelievable.
Another quick project I was able to get to was this blanket. My cousin’s daughter is having a baby and is doing the nursery in a tan and cream safari theme. How cute of an idea is that? They chose not to find out the if it’s a boy or girl ahead of time so I wanted something that would work for either. I think this print will fit in with a safari theme just fine.
Sometimes this guy …
is full of surprises. (He’ll be so happy with me that I posted his picture. NOT! )
These were delivered to work today. Flowers are a real treat as it’s not something he/we do very often. I’m not a wife that expects them for Valentines Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc so they are always a unexpected treat when I do receive them. I really didn’t expect any this year as Friday we took my wedding set to the jewelers for an overhaul.
Aren’t they beautiful? And fun spring colors? Do you think he knows how sick of winter I am and that I needed something perky? You can keep your red roses, give me bright and cheery any day. He’s an alright kind of guy, I think I’ll keep him!
