While Spring is officially here our outside thermometer told me is was 24F. It just makes me shiver writing that number.
The last time I posted I had just shattered my elbow while ice skating with my DgD. A month and a half , 23 stitches, a plate and some screws later I am well on the road to recovery. Physical therapy is a challenge but so very helpful. I was actually able to use my rotary cutter today-yay!. Silly me. I thought one had to hold that darn thing up right and press really hard. Well, if you put a fresh blade in, it can be held at an angle with slight pressure and a steady push. I have got to stop being so cheap and refresh that blade more often.
While on the couch I decided to take Rachel's Color Intensive class. I have never felt comfortable putting my own color combos together so I decided to go to school. She is a wonderful teacher and gave her students lots of helpful advice.
Some of the most helpful, to me, was stash evaluation. My stash is full of hand-me -downs and lots of focus fabrics. I do not have many blenders or solids.My first purchase after her class (it is okay to laugh) was
To go with the bicycle, bicycle (anyone remember Meatloaf) fabric.
Now I have to find a pattern - hummm pinterest here I come.
Take care ya all - the fam is ransacking the kitchen trying to make caramel popcorn (can you say mess?)
