Last weekend when we stopped at the yarn shop to pick up the circular needle that I needed and we had to drive through this neighborhood. Someone had shoveled out the pond and this man was enjoying the afternoon with his dog. I wish you could have been with me going through this neighborhood. It has a feel all it's own. Each house has it's own distinct look. It's almost like being in another world. In the summer it looks like a town out on the prairie somewhere or somewhere from the Twilight Zone. The grass is left to grow to it's natural state. When the snow melts and the grass is grown, I will do a photo tour of this neighborhood for you. This is not your typical neighborhood, it has a complete look of it's own. I can't explain it and maybe I won't even be able to capture the feeling in a photo. I'm going to try but sometimes you have to be there to feel it.
Look what came in the mail yesterday, Thursday...no wonder it's my favorite day of the week.
Doesn't it just make your mouth water looking at it? I ordered this from Fresh-Squeezed Fabrics, Randi from I have to say has this shop. I finally broke down after resisting the temptation since her shop opened up to buy any fabric, plus I had to clean out my sewing room before I could even think about buying any more fabric. So, now that the sewing room is cleaned out and seeing the wonderful fabric that Anna bought I broke down. So, if you want some delicious fabric just head on over and check it out...the fabric is wonderful. I already have plans for it.
Another package arrived yesterday too. I'm so excited I found these over at Cath Kidston clearance sale, and there's not much left anymore, so I'm glad I bought when I did.
They're all washed and put away...the pillowcases will match my white sheets.
Not much going on here...trying to get the knitting project done. I've been sewing some and today I plan to cut some of that beautiful fabric up and I just hate to do it. I'm like that with fabric and yarn, I could look at it all day. But, before I can do that I have to get up to the office and work. Work...sigh...there are a few good things tho about my job.
1. I don't have to leave the house, I just head up the stairs to the office above the garage.
2. I can make my own hours.
3. I'm married to my boss, but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
4. I do get paid so that I can buy the things I need for my habit...like the photos above.
Tonight I'm going on a date with my hubby. Yes that's what I said...a DATE. I don't think we've called going out for dinner a "date" in a very long time.
So, you all have a wonderful Friday and I'll see you next week.
