Wow! February just disappeared. Between two rounds of colds and other nasty viruses, a visit from Grandma, and school vacation week, the month of February at the Morning Glory Lane household was a little bit of a blur! It’s feels good to start to see the return of routine around here.
I have seen these on several blogs, but I used the tutorial here at Don't Look Now. Super sweet and super easy. A funny story: as I was making these, I had a couple sitting on the desk near my sewing machine. Earlier that week, the oldest daughter had told me she needed to get birthday presents for a couple of her friends. She happened to walk in as I was finishing up some sewing, and I turned to her, held out two pincushions, and said with a straight face, that I had made rings for her friends’ birthday presents. For a moment she looked at me in shock and horror (she’s 15) until she realized I was joking. Now it is a running joke that anytime we need a gift, the girls suggest I make a “puffy ring.”
I’ve also started taking my first quilt class. Over the years, I’ve mostly taught myself, but I’ve always wanted to take a class and learn from others. And I’m loving it! Here’s a little glimpse into what we’re doing…
And my fabrics:
I’ve also started teaching an Intro to Sewing class at another local shop. I am having a lot of fun, and I would love to be able to teach and sew all the time!
Around here, weather-wise, March came in like a lion, so I am hoping that this means the days are only going to get warmer. I did see some buds on a few bushes over the weekend!
With warm, spring wishes,
