Go See Martha's Aprons

Please go visit Martha at Q is for Quilter* and see her vintage-inspired aprons that will be given as favors to guests at her daughter's upcoming bridal shower. I don't know Martha but I wonder if I can get an invitation.  I'll bring a nice gift.

*The aprons are shown in the last few posts starting on April 15th.

Also, Rachel has another embroidery pattern round-up on One Pretty Thing . Thanks, Rachel!

Just In Time For Easter 2012

A few things I should have posted before last weekend:

Runaway Bunny Felt Easter Picture -- I must make this!  [via Craft Gossip's Felting blog]

Marshmallow bunny plushies from Dandelions and Lace -- they look just like Peeps

Do Not Covet Thy Neighbor's Roses

The other day I snapped some pictures of my neighbors' roses because they were full-on blooming and soooo pretty,  I was going to blog about them since I really have no other pictures to share since all I do anymore is go on Facebook and play Pet Society and make fun of stoopid status updates.  Seriously, what is up with people who post that they're at the bank and at McDonald's and at the grocery store?  Do they not realize that no one needs an update on their whereabouts every 17 minutes?  I would so love to go rob them while they're running their errands. Really.  It's so annoying.

I know someone else who counts down to vacation.  As in "142 days until Scranton."   Then, we get "138 days until Scranton.".  OMG, PLEASE SHUT UP.  I know you're excited to take your trip but none besides yourself is marking off the days on the calendar.

And, just so you know, I am not talking about anyone that I know through blogging and is a Facebook friend.  any I don't mind the occasional vacation updates at all and I love looking at your vacation pics but the constant countdown is annoying.

Maybe I just need new friends.

So, anyway, I took some pictures of my next-door neighbors' roses and cannot get them to download or upload or whatever it is.  I keep getting an error message.  The photos are showing up on my camera so I don't know what's going on.  I was thinking of cutting some of those roses under cover of darkness so maybe that's why my camera isn't cooperating.  It doesn't approve of what I'm planning.

Like I would ever have the guts to steal my neighbors' roses.  Please.  However, if they had heirloom tomato plants, that would be another story.

I am bound and determined to make something this weekend (does my bed count?) so I should be back on Monday with something to show you.  Have a Happy Easter!  (Just like that poor chick!)

April TUSAL Report

It's time for a New Moon so I have another picture of my TUSAL jar to share.  But, first, this is what I had to deal with when I sat on my bed to take pictures.

We had to clear out of the house for five days this past week while the new floor was being installed and I forgot to take my TUSAL jar with me so I collected my orts in a Ziploc bag.  I think the embroidery I did while sitting in a motel room was the most I have done all month.

And, there's my jar with the new threads added.

Thanks to Sharon at It's Daffycat for hosting the Totally-Useless-Stitch-a-Long this year!
