What happened to Winter?

It's 69 degrees here and all I have is winter clothes in my closet so I have no idea what I'm going to wear today. With this crazy weather I wouldn't be surprised if it snowed tomorrow, although they say it will be 51 degrees tomorrow. I sort of want to go to the park to sit and stitch but at the same time I don't.

I haven't made any major updates with my quilting and stitching but yesterday I spent the entire day working on my quilt blocks and made a breakthrough! I managed to get half of them done and now I need to cut the fabric and piece the pieces together for the other half which is something I may do today. I bought a rolling sewing machine case (I'm such a dweeb) so I may go over to Kelly's house to do this. His kitchen counter is the perfect size and height to cut fabric and he's been coming over here the pass few days that I'm pretty sure he'd like to have a day at home today.

I'll show a picture of what I'm stitching just for the hell of it but I haven't gotten far with it. I'm working on the border for the first room that I stitched on Dollhouse and then I can move on to the next room which I haven't decided on which to stitch next. I have a choice of 4 and think I may end up working on one of the attic rooms but who knows.

I bought this really cute book last night to make plush animals. It's called Plush-O-Rama Curious Creatures for Immature Adults hehe. Once I get over my fear of actually sewing something that requires me to cut fabric in a weird shape I'll try one.

Well I'm off to get dressed. Hope the weather is normal for you guys and not crazy like it is here. TTFN!

OK... What's a rolling sewing case? LOL I'm a nerd too, so I may want one! I've been sewing on a machine since I was a teen (hand sewing long before that)... piece of cake. Don't be afraid. :)

Thankyou for leaving me a comment. I think your blog is great!! The kit you asked about - well in the USA you should be able to get it from Elegant Stitch, I got mine in the UK.
