sewing, showing and growing

Pretty, and Happy



Two projects almost completed - a cheerful skirt for Easter wear, which is now hemmed; and a quilt that I've started binding. How nicely they match each other, and my sewing machine!


Funny

This looks like a piece of cotton, doesn't it? But no; it's a Kleenex that went through the washer AND the dryer. Now we all know what a mess a Kleenex makes going through the wash - so what's up with this one??

Real



The ideal houseplant - one which is also meant to be eaten by pets. Not to mention that it's the lushest thing ever grown in this house.

  1. Dolly really should share a spot with 'pretty' - but I love the skirt and quilt too!

  2. Love this post, Lisa! You have been working with such pretty colors! Dolly is certainly having a good snack. How unusual for that Kleenex to come through perfectly intact! Many's the time I've really "done a number" on a laundry load with a tissue making the cycle!

    Wishing you a joyous Easter!

  5. Those fabrics are cheerful!
    And I love that photo of Dolly in the window - all that red and white, on the curtains and the pot and the cat!
