I've been collecting some fabric. I still can't get sewing tomatoes out of my mind (posted March 1) so instead of dying eggs tomorrow....I'm going to make some tomatoes. I will take some pictures to show you too.
I'm also ripping out recipes from all my cooking magazines. I'm only saving the ones I know I want to cook. The magazines have taken over and I'm getting rid of them. Whew!!!! Now instead of a 5' stack of magazines, I will have a 6" stack of papers. (Maybe someone has a great way to sort and store these?)
Since my mother-in-law is visiting, I'm trying out 4 new recipes on her. She is the perfect taste tester. We are talking and tasting everything as I cook. (We will probably be full before dinner.)
I'm also thinking about hooking a small rug. I found this small pattern and it looks about the right size for an enjoyable weekend. I love hooking....but just haven't taken the time.
Barb and I are getting ready to hit the road. We will be teaching at Stitchville's Spring Fling. We have several projects in the works and are looking forward to spending some time with those of you in Minnesota. I will be showing the project on the blog during this next week. It's at the framers now....there will be a needle box too. Plus other fun extra items...will show all soon. Click on the shop's name for retreat information.
