After eating, we went to the Bass Pro Shop at the Silverton Casino, to see all the stuffed animals – I hate that – and with the hope of seeing the mermaid in the giant aquarium located between the store and the casino. We lucked out- the mermaid was there. Harry was so thrilled because he loves mermaids - Lex got an awesome picture-
I had never seen her before – I didn’t even know they had a little show with a mermaid. By the time we got home, about four hours later, again I was beat. Am I just getting old? How will I ever get through another day at Disneyland or an even worse thought – DisneyWorld and Epcot? I really need to lose weight so that I can drag my old body around for longer periods of time!
The tote bag I am making for Linda is coming along – she had posted a comment about how she was anxious to see it so I decided I would at least give her a glimpse of the fabrics I am using-
They aren’t ironed here, but the parts I have been working on that have been ironed look really “fabu” together! Linda, I hope you like them – you said bright green and pink- and they are brighter in person than in the photo.
It really is pretty. I have an idea of what to do with it that could be really cool. I have to wash it before I can use it. Everything has to be washed before I can use it because I’m allergic to the finishes and starches used on new fabrics. I usually sneeze like crazy if I am in a fabric store too long- it can be miserable!
The April block is up on my block of the month class. It’s a fan block so there is some curved piecing. I think I am going to put that together this evening. It should go pretty fast and I will still have time to work on Linda’s tote bag. I thought I should get some waxed paper to help with the piecing – that isn’t something we usually have in our house so I had to run to the store real quick. Does anyone still use waxed paper besides quilters?
Off to sew! Happy Easter to everyone!
