I've been enjoying crab apple tree blooms in my kitchen this week. They really are pretty, although they're not going to last very long. The pink confetti has already started to drop onto my table... *sniff*
Fidget wanted some in a little vase, just for her. How could I resist?
I promise, from here on out, no more talk or photos of crab apple blossoms! Pinky swear. Thanks for indulging me, though. You're so sweet. xo
So.... I wrapped up another block for Tracy's March Twelve Square quilt last week. Tracy wanted 'mostly gray with pops of color and texture.' I am sodigging her choices here, and all of the blocks that have been submitted thus far. It's so fresh and modern... I cannot wait to see how she puts these all together. It will be so beautiful.

She's killing me with the new yellow blocks she's been working on. Seriously. This one? Love.
I got some sewing done this weekend -- the 'Servant Girl' tunic from Sugar City... It pains me to say I don't love the results. It's about 85% done and I think it's the fabric that just isn't working for me. Or maybe the darts that seem random and haphazard. Or the bias tape around the neckline that is not behaving.... I just left it at my machine on Saturday and haven't yet returned!
But that's ok. I've been eyeing the elastic thread I bought last summer and think I might give that a try.... stay tuned.
Oh! And the painters might be done today! It's looking so different around here. (Especially with every window covered in plastic sheeting -- it's killing me to not open the windows and enjoy the super weather we are having this week.) This morning I panicked a little and thought the house looked too blue, but I think at this point I'm just getting paranoid and hypersensitive to things. That didn't keep me from emailing hubs at work and sharing my fear. He's not, as you might expect, worried at all.
What, you say I'm pregnant? And that might have something to do with all this indecision? Quite possibly. I'm almost certain that is the case. At any rate, things are happening around here. I'm just trying to keep up.
