Now to get sewing for the giveaway. However, that will have to wait until crafter's back resolves itself.

I'll be away from the blog, except for a pre-written Sunday inspiration, for the rest of this week and into next. Part of that time, I'll be stitching up some aprons (in a far less frantic way, this time) for a three-hundredth post give away. Be excited, friends!

However, I'm back in the swing of all-night craftiness, and I did finish these pairs of matching "Mommy and Me" Aprons for Stinky's preschool silent auction. What do you think?

I owe spring an apology. I'm glad you're here. I'm grateful for the gradual warmth and the early blooms. I'm grateful for spring break and a planned beach house trip in the upcoming months.
I'm resuming crafting now, after a long hiatus. I have to sew two pairs of mommy-and-me aprons for a preschool auction by Wednesday morning. I don't really want to, and I haven't even really started. The great thing is, I'll have some great scrap fabric left over. Perhaps enough for a 300th post giveaway project.

Today, I'm dreaming of summer. We've had some unusually warm weather. WBH painted, Stinky and I planted the garden. We spent time outside. Then it snowed yesterday. Welcome to western Washington, I know. My mind is stuck in spring, though, and dreaming of summer. I'm dreaming of farmer's markets, beach days, and picking my dad's strawberries. Of two months of WBH being home with us, walks to the spray park, and dirty little boy feet from playing in the yard. Of not being cold, finally.
Dear Spring: I love these peeks of good things to come that you provide, but this year? How about if you take this year off? Let's skip to June.

Once again, it's been a week where my creative energy feels pretty stifled by fatigue and the demands of keeping life moving on the outside, keeping life growing on the inside. The good news is that this week marked the end of modified bedrest, brought good news at an ultrasound (don't worry, there's still just one), and I've felt up to working around the house. I'm cooking again, and if you catch us on the right day, we all might be wearing clean socks.
There have been a lot of changes going on in our house. WBH has been painting the exterior, removing a tree, and adding a raised garden bed. He's been working so hard. We took Stinky to buy seeds this weekend, and he's thrilled to work on it. We'll be sure to post pictures when things are more completed.
In addition, this week I'm going to try to fix the look of this blog. I haven't been happy with it in a while, but making the time to fix it just wasn't that important to me yet. I hope everyones' week is off to a great start!
