g'bye winter!

last night paul made apple crumble to celebrate the end of winter. it was absolutely delicious and made the house smell like heaven.
we ate it while we watched grey's anatomy. i can't even tell you how much i love this show!! LOVE IT! all of the characters are so complex and interesting. (my cousin tipped me off that there's even a grey's anatomy blog!)

in other news, i spent my entire march break (last week) stuck inside making stuff for the spring one of a kind show. it's coming up march 29th to sun. apr. 2nd. i'm just a tiny bit stressed....not too bad. i feel ok during the day when i'm working on it but when i go to bed at night i toss + turn thinking of stuff i still need to do, supplies i still need to buy, new designs i should work on for the next show. i can't turn my brain off even though i'm sleepy.
anyhow, here's a peek at a little bit of what i've been doing.
(waiting to become earrings)

(soon to be charm bracelets)

i've got necklaces & hairpins too but didn't bother taking a photo.

hope everyone had a great weekend...

LittleMissMeshell said...

Hello again hun! Cheers for your nice comments on my blog :)
With the bedsheet drop-stitch scarf I just tied the pieces together but you could most definitely sew them if you had the patience! (as the knots created by tieing are quite big!)

Stacey said...
