I've had a lull in my blogging lately. I guess I've had a little bit of writers block as well. A lot has been going on, but I haven't had much to say about it. I've also been searching for a new project, but I haven't been completely inspired by anything yet so I haven't had anything to say about that either. If you have a sewing project idea for me, please pass it my way. Easter vacation is coming soon and I need something to work on.
Anyway, here's what I've been up to these last few weeks, in no particular order. A teacher friend of mine is having a baby boy sometime in April and she is doing the nursery in vintage baseball stuff. I sewed the booties and blankie for her shower gift.
Tonight at dinner, Ryan was drawing on his place mat when suddenly he said, "Hey, I drew my name!" I had to take a picture because I was so proud.
My grandma's condo in Morro Bay suffered some pretty serious water damage due to a water heater that sprung a leak. Anyway, my mom and I went over to meet with some contractors to get some work done on it. Her are some pictures of the sad state of affairs. I hope it can be repaired soon so we can have a weekend getaway.
I think Rita thinks she is a princess and was sleeping on this stack of pillows, trying to feel the "pea" under all of it. She's so cute.
I used up the last of my delicious Dinuba peaches last week on this lovely pie. I'm going to toot my own horn and tell you that it was absolutely delicious. I can't wait to get some more of these lovely pieces of fruit this summer.
I also sewed a Roman shade for the boys' room. I had to fiddle with it a little, but I'm happy with it. It is made out of red burlap with a black out lining. I was really worried about sewing with these materials, but my new machine tackled it with no problems.
Hopefully, I will find some more blogging inspiration in the next few weeks. Jack turns 9 months on Monday so I will try and get a post together for that.
