I can't believe I haven't posted since the end of December. Never mind. Of course I can believe it.
Since then, I have put away all the Christmas stuff, cleaned the house a few times, and had another lasik treatment on my right eye. Went to a couple of dog shows with my hubby and in-laws (we love dog shows, even if we don't show dogs). I've made decorations for the little trees I am now keeping year 'round (a 3' on the porch and an 18" in the house)--little paper clay hearts for them for now, after taking down the wooden snowflakes. I guess eggs, bunnies and spring flowers will be next. This penchant for decorating seasonally might last, and it might not...guess time will tell.
I also went to my hometown in TX for a few days, to hang out with a good buddy I've known since we were 15. I enjoyed running around my hometown, but she and I aren't anywhere near the party peeps we used to be. One night we stayed up 'til 11pm and the next day found us dragging. We are telling ourselves it's because we get up so early now, and we're wiser. Uh-huh.
Recently I've studied wool applique, and decided to work on something other than dolls for a little while. I love the dolls, but it was time to just "play" with needle & thread instead of working. I made a little piece from a pattern which was supposed to be a pin cushion, but I think I'll make it into a sewing kit cover to take on trips. I've also got a million wool pennies cut out for a coffee-table size penny rug. I'm not sure why, but working with wool is viscerally satisfying in a way I didn't expect.
Hope all are well and happy and that Spring is not teasing you too badly.
(I can't wait for my iris to start blooming!)
