What's Next?

If you don't know about my New Year's Resolution, click here to learn more.

I'm not sure yet what May's resolution should be. Here are some ideas I have had:

Playing guitar
Practicing Spanish
Cleaning the house (with projects like washing windows and screens, scrubbing floors, washing curtains, etc.)
Writing a note of gratitude to a different person each day
Coming up with a new card for Spectrum of Amber each day
Stamping cards
Catching up on old emails for 15 minutes a day (I have some from 2006 I haven't responded to!)
Sewing more (there are still projects to be done that I didn't finish in April!)

What do you think? What's your vote?

Good Sewing Weekend

Zac is out of town this weekend, so I'm trying to pack in as much girl stuff as possible! I had a great time volunteering with some girlfriends yesterday, and then closing out the day with an entire evening stamping with a friend.

Today the rainy weather outside is a perfect excuse to stay inside and sew. I already watched the movie "Ever After" and now I'm on to "Pride and Prejudice." It's a good day.

Well, off to sew some more and finish the movie. You might just get to see a picture of my project today. :)

Quick Sewing Update

To be completely honest, I haven't sewn as much as I had hoped to. It's a little sad. I have a lot of excuses, but I won't waste time here writing them all down. :)

I did make some good progress tonight, which felt good. In total, I have fixed 2 pair of pants, 1 shirt, and 2 shorts. Casualties include one pricked finger and one broken needle!

I forgot how good spring smells! I walked out of the school building today and was hit with a warm, fragrant breeze. It almost smelled like lilacs, but I think I was being too wishful. It was some sort of blossoming plant, that much I'm sure of!

I rolled down my car windows as I drove home and paused long enough at a stoplight to take in a rich, fresh-cut grass smell. Yum! Thank you to whoever that was mowing their lawn!

Spring keeps getting better and better!

Drum Roll, Please....

April is SEWING month. This month I commit to sewing at least 15 minutes each day. I hope to mend some clothes that need a little lovin', make curtains for the bedroom and kitchen, and maybe - well, I don't know if I should even put this down here - maybe recover the living room sofas. We'll see how far 15 minutes a day goes!
