Good afternoon! I wanted to check in earlier than this, but alas, time gets away! I am excited to say that things continue to move along with my art, and I am very happy to be taking part in an upcoming fundraiser/art exhibit!
Just wanted to share that, in case any of you triangle North Carolina girls get the chance to at least go and take a look! I am thinking we (especially my homeschooling buds) all love the efforts made by the Triangle Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic!
That said (oh, enough bragging for one day!), I would like to pass on some very special link love!! Are you ready for this??
My mama has a blog. Yes, and you will love it! I cannot wait to see what she has posted now each day. It is called
Set your bookmarks up and go see her!
Finally, before I stop my break and get back to work, I recently made something frugal and useful. A few years back I found an old cotton slip at the thrift store.
Yeah. I have used it as a night shirt and I have literally worn it until one of the straps is starting to fall apart.
Remember my goal to use up more and spend less, I wondered if I can make one like this. Seems like a simple pattern. Imagine my delight when I found nearly 3 yard of the most billowy, vintage looking floral fabric you have ever seen, and only for 3 dollars. Then imagine my ever greater surprise when I got up to pay for it and found that, due to its length of time in the store, it was only $1.50! It was destiny, me and that fabric. I had a thought and there it was.
So I brought it home and traced around the parts of the old slip, without even cutting the old slip up, I might add.
It turned out even better than I had imagined!
Henny Penny, are you proud of your baby chick?
In final news, I woke up to the sound of birds this morning! But it was different from yesterday. They sounded like they were singing of spring! And it felt like spring outside! Be still my heart. It made me scurry outside in my overalls to work on my little garden area.
