I tried something new two days ago. It was one of those projects that was floating around in my head and I wondered if it would really look good, if it would work. I am by no means a quilter, nor do I have any experience, lessons, tools, etc. But I’ve been wanting to try a small quilt-type project. I love simple designs and patterns–circles, squares, a tree by itself, one small bird. This project obviously shows those qualities that I’m drawn to. It was probably the most therapeutic sewing I’ve done in awhile. I was doing what I wanted, my own ideas not based on something I saw someone else do. I was making it for my own pleasure and I really didn’t care what another’s opinion was of the final project because I knew that I LIKED IT. So here it is. It is small, only about the size of a sheet of paper. I showed it to my husband and he said, "I don’t get it." Funny. But okay.
New Project #2:
A few days ago my aunt called wanting to know if we’d be willing to take one of her baby lambs that needs to be bottle fed. Of course, it didn’t take long to decide. "Sunshine" arrived yesterday in all her wooly, wobbly legged-ness. We’ve been keeping her outside during the day in some grass with sun and a large tree for shade. And at night we tuck her into one of the stalls in the barn. She gobbles up bottles from the girls’ hands and wags her tail in pure lamby pleasure. A perfect spring project.
