Spring colors















It's warming up--finally! And our little apartment was filled with spring colors this weekend--lots of little projects and happenings to share with you. Andrew bought me my first sewing machine last weekend and I spent a good bit of time "figuring it out" and cooing over my new fabric on Saturday. I made cherry scones in our muffin tin because I couldn't be bothered to clean off the baking sheet. And I branched out from the granny square and tried my hand at a little beanie! It's amazing when a project actually looks recognizable in the end, instead of a haphazard ball of knots.

Now it's time to settle in for a full week of mid-terms and study questions--yuck. Spring is a tortuous time of year to be in school, it really is.

XOXO,
Jewels

What a nice full weekend. I love all of your projects and that you fill your time learning new things. What a cute little beanie for a cute little Otter. Can't wait to see your sewing projects.
Just in from a 4 mile walk along the lake-I do think spring is on the horizon.
