The weather here has been wonderful the last few days and it is all I can do to work in my studio and not run outside and play. I got the veggie beds cleaned and planted with the early veggies. The peas are already up about 1 and 1/2 inches. And ofcourse so are the radishes, lettuces and spinach. I trimmed and tied up the raspberries and we are going to have one of Scott’s spring favorites–rhubarb bars, yummy good. Noel and I have been busy with his running start application/testing/meeting stuff…it is almost over, whew!!! I have just finished up writing an article (with pictures) for Doll Crafter and Costuming magazine (hopefully it will be in the Oct. issue). Was requested by Art Doll Quarterly Editor to send off 2 dolls (yet another post office run–the lady there is now used to my weird shipping requests and questions ;0). Gypsy doll was in the latest issue of ADQ (page 72 if interested). In the picture above you can see 2 jean skirts that I made for my daughter and I. Hers is the blue-ish one and mine is the pink and orange one. Scott donated the fabrics–I am not sure which line they are from but were decorator weight and washed up beautifully. My 100th post is coming-up and I have added new goodies to the pile so stay tuned.
