March 1st

The March 1st picture on my calendar is a garden full of flowers. Only twenty days until the first day of spring! We've had a very little amount of snow this winter with most of it arriving last week so winter will be over before we know it. I tried to get this post done yesterday but I'm still getting to know blogger and was interrupted by a little hockey game that was on TV. Great game Teams USA & Canada!

Sunday around here always means bread day. I do the prep work the evening before so it's a quick mix together, knead done by DH and in the oven to rise in the morning. DH and I work as a well oiled machine since we've been doing this for about twenty years. We always make five loaves as that's how many fit in the oven to rise and then bake at the same time. Five loaves last the week keeping the lunch bucket filled and enough for buttery toast every morning.

A while back a purchased a number of clearance kits from Connecting Threads. The price is right and regardless of if I use their patterns or not it's a nice bundle of co-ordinated fabrics to have on hand. I just finished the above runner for a birthday gift with lots of fabric leftover.

"Oh oh, What is she up to now Marcie?"

"I don't know Jake. What's a blog?"

Jake, Marcie and I wish you a creative start to March.

Dear Jake and Marcie,

You'll be seeing less of you Mom now that she has a blog...but she'll be more productive too. Sometimes my Mom feels guilty and she gives me more treats. If we lived closer, I could teach you my "feel sorry for me" face.

Your friend,

Mac the Westie

Ah, aren't they adorable? Are they always so sweet and quiet?

I have made a few kits from Connecting Threads too. Remember, in March they have great sales on different dates.

I'm just waiting on one...or two...or three..LOL

Welcome to blogland. Poor Jake and Marcie are destined to be left sleeping on a pile of fabric now, plus your sewing output will decrease. How? Because of all the time spent at the computer and not the sewing machine.
