So how did the weekend work out? Are you feeling that hour? Well I know you aren't Arizona peeps. Try not to rub our faces in it ok?  It was a great weekend here though! I didn't sew a stitch, but I did cut out the last two rows of the row along, the baskets and the tulips.  Here's proof of tulips!

We had a fun day Saturday. Elizabeth had some  coveted-by-me treasures she was parting with, so Bret and I took the pick-up over to her dad's  and loaded them up.  We had a bit of a Beverly Hillbillies trip home , but I'm pleased to say all the goods are here and safe! Once here, I got out the jaws of life and some Pam Spray and wedged it all into the house.  PERFECTION. 
Among the things I brought back was a bag of goodies from CHRISTMAS. Yes, I'm embarrassed to say my Christmas present was sitting at her dad's house and I FORGOT ABOUT IT.  I'm a lame friend.  No excuseS, even though I have some prepared.  Anyway, how adorable are these?  That glasses case has a hidden magnet and I'm just dying over how nice and firm it is.  I have no idea how it's made but GENIUS.
Surprize from Elizabeth
Of course I love the darling notebook cover and the cute measuring spoons.  There were other treats in the bag that all were color coordinated but these fit so nicely on the little table. It was a very happy package and it was a fun treat out of the blue. I'm lucky to have such a clever friend in Elizabeth!
Best of all it was sunny and nice, very springy. My car decided to taunt me and yesterday when I headed to the market around 4pm it said it was ONE HUNDRED DEGREES! I guess it was my cars way of saying count my blessings for the lovely spring weather. AND I WILL! 
Have a wonderful week my friends! Tell me what you're up to! xo

I had a glorious weekend filled with shopping, cooking and sewing with some PKL. I swear I never intend to choose PK, but as I walk about the store looking for the purrfect fabric for my project PK shouts Choose Me! Choose Me! (It always seems to be just the right color and look, why is that)? (Because you are so smart and clever, that's why). My happy tank is full and now I'm ready to take on the week. Have a good one.

What darling presents! Christmas presents in March...maybe that's the start of something.

That lost hour seems to be more of a problem today than yesterday. Must drink more coffee.

Ps if there is a pattern for the gasses case I'd love to know where to find it!

Any way you could talk Elizabeth into sharing how the glasses case was made? It is adorable! Or if she has a pattern for sale, where can I get one?
Can't wait to see your finished rows. The sewing sure goes faster than the cutting, so you'll be done in no time.

Can't wait to see your Row Along rows. You are one of my favorite designers and I marvel at your sense of color and design. Very inspiring!

Such lovely gifts from your friend. Do you happen to know of an easy way to make notebook covers? That one is adorable. I tried to make one once, but gave up. :( Any help is appreciated.

Happy Sewing!
