It is the best time of the year, Spring. Unfortunately, spring season does not last long, we will have about 2 more weeks of it here and it will be hot. Husband has planted several tomato and jalapeño plants along with cilantro, as we are building a "salsa garden."
Here is a picture of a mega-beast from last fall, our parsley, it is huge!
They are perfect for all year, really, just add a cardigan, it is better than CrewCuts. This one above, I gave to my niece for her second birthday. It was hard to let go.
So, I have been in the mood to cut some bias strips with some of my favorite stripe fabrics. I take a square of fabric and fold it over as pictured and cut 2-inch strips. Sewing the strips together can be a real pain when you want stripes to match. But, after a while, it all works! I got a little crazy and made even more colors than what is pictured. Whenever I need some tape for a project, the most tedious work is already done! It's time to register for Silver Bella! I cannot wait, six months to go!
I finally watched Slumdog Millionaire. I enjoyed that movie so much! One of my professors would ask the class had we seen the movie about social justice, out of 100 students, no one had seen it! This was just before the Academy Awards, I'm sure a few watched it afterwards. I do not like going to the theater to see movies, so, I knew that it was not going to happen. The only movie I saw last year in the theater was "Tropic Thunder," yes, it was worth it.
