First blog post on my iPad......not sure if I like it
It's been a long couple of weeks. I haven't been doing much more than sleeping and getting a few things done. I made a purse that I wasn't happy with, but my Mother in Law liked it so she took it home. It was really inexpensive to make. Thrift shopping rocks. I got 30% off the ticket price!!
I have enough fabric to make another and it's actually cut out and sitting on my sewing table to make another one. I learned how to make an inside zippered pocket thanks to a great tutorial.
I sat yesterday and watched the finals of the Tim Horton's Brier and made a bunch of earrings and a few other pieces too!
A baby just out of the bath tub. Nothing smells sweeter!
Lilacs. Nothing says June like the smell of Lilacs in the air
Any kind of baking. The house smells delicious when anything is baking in the oven
Sheets that have been dried on the clothesline. A good nights sleep is almost guaranteed
Fresh cut grass
Coffee brewing. I don't drink coffee, but love the smell
My grandmother's laundry. I don't know if it's a combination of her water, detergent and fabric softener, but her clean laundry smell is amazing. I have a t shirt of my grandfather's in a zip lock bag.....
Wood burning. A fireplace in the fall or a campfire in the summer
Roses, especially wild roses
Mud...only in the spring. It's the smell that tells me that spring is really here!
