Living in Maine we're always surprised when the weather turns nice in March. I think this is the first time I can ever remember raking and REALLY being warmed by the sun. How banal, talking about the weather. But it IS truly amazing! Raking...and I have a bandaid to prove it! (Sorry it's so dark. And wrinkly)


Elastigirl for Deborah! I just looked back in her archives for a picture of the BEST Christmas card I ever saw and I can't believe she never blogged about it. I was going to link to it, but guess not. Her family was dressed up as the Incredibles: Jeff was Mr. Incredible, she was Elastigirl, Benjamin was Dash and Claire was Violet. Very creative and clever of our Deborah.

I've taken a break from my Ireland piece to work on some commission pieces that need to be done in a couple of months. An artist friend of mine has 13 seniors in her art classes and as a departing gift she wants to give each one a personalized sketchbook. So, I've been making covers for all of them. So far I have four in different stages of finish. They've been fun, relaxing and each one is like taking a quick gulp of fresh air. I'll have pictures soon. In the meantime, our Art Quilts Maine meeting is today so I'm sure there'll be lots to see here soon!!

Elastigirl, here! It's true I don't think I ever blogged about that Christmas card. It was a riot. The notebook covers sound so wonderful -- ans what an amazing gift. I can't wait to see them. (And hear about AQM.)
