I Saw a Sign of Spring

The Dairy Queen is open! I saw it with my own two eyes when I was out running errands this evening. Yay! Spring is getting closer. But of course we have another snow advisory thing going on for tomorrow. Yuck.

I got one of the camo mitts done. It looks more stripey than camo. But I like it so far. This yarn has been nice to work with.

I got bit by the sewing bug yesterday so I went to Joann's and bought some fabric.

I got a little bit of sewing done this evening. I'll show you what I'm making when I get more done. I used to sew all the time, I made all kinds of things, I worked in a fabric store, I did alterations for people, and then somehow it fell by the wayside, life must have gotten in the way. But every now and then I get the itch to sew. So I dusted off the machine and I've been playing seamstress. It was a nice change to do something different in the creativity department.

camo looks good! I have never tried that yarn before.

Our DQ is open all year round. It used to be only open in the spring but they got a renovation about 10 years ago and now it is slow but open in the winter. Last time I was there was December getting Giggles a ice cream cake for her bd party.

I am curious to see what you come up with those fabrics together. I have to get to my table to be able to sew. I used to do it all the time as well. I have to get some order down here because after spring break I am teaching a mom and daughter friend of me and Chicken how to sew on a machine...along with Chicken.

Have a great Tuesday!!
