(When I was a kid, my family had a station wagon and the coveted seats were in the very back. And they faced backwards. You could do all kinds of screwing around back there and Dad couldn't see a thing. It was great!).
So, here's a summary of some of my business: In the last two months I have been:
Working on carving out some of this mess here - -
I planned and hosted a baby shower for my sister. We did a "First Lady" theme since she was expecting the first girl in our family. Princesses are SO overdone, if you ask me.
I also welcomed my new niece, Vee.
I went with The Conductor to the wedding of a good friend of his. Isn't her dress pretty? She wore her late mother's headpiece, too. I'm so jealous of them - they live in a city (Grand Rapids, MI), but they get to have chickens!!!
Isn't her tablescape pretty? The plant in the glass vase next to the name tag was our party favor. It's an air plant which I've never heard of. But they really do live just on air. They don't need water or dirt. Crazy cool!
And, as if I don't have enough on my plate, I had a terrifying encounter with this:
I know....I'm a gardener. I garden barefoot where bugs are. I pick plants that have bugs on them. I've brought produce inside and found bugs on it.
Bugs are a part of life.
BUT NOT WHEN THEY'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR SEWING ROOM FLOOR.
Yea. This thing was just.....there....on the middle of the floor. I have no idea where he came from. It's still wintery here so there were no windows open or anything. I don't bring food in there. Where he came from and where he was going, I have no idea.
Look at him! As big as a bobbin. I am not kidding when I say I spent the next three hours freaking out that he was in there because he's the kind of worm that likes to eat fabric.
I can handle bugs of any kind in any situation - - but not near my fabric stash. Ugh!
Anyway, I did get a few more projects done which I will hopefully post about soon. I'm here, my dear 12 followers! I've just been crazy busy!
