What I Did This Weekend (and What's Coming Up)

Hello Friends!

Spring finally arrived in Northern California this past weekend and I couldn't be more grateful. I have been longing for sunshine!  It really lifted my spirits!

I did manage to make some Shrinky-Dink rings although my technique could use some fine-tuning. I also made Noodlebug a hooded towel.  Very easy and fun to make. I can't wait to do more!  Of course, I owe you photos of both! 

Besides all of that, we tried to spend lots of time outside this past weekend and even went to the pool. I have such plans for the summer!  Coming up, we have the Petaluma Art and Garden Festival which I always enjoy.  Then, we have the Sonoma-Marin Fair and I have actually entered something!  I entered a hand-knitted teddy bear that I made for Noodlebug.  July will bring the wonderful Fourth of July parade in Sonoma and a firework show in Petaluma.  Then, it will be time for the Sonoma County Fair.  I entered Noodlebug's rag quilt in this show.  The edge is completely uneven on one side but I am still proud of it.

I am looking forward to spending some quality time with my family this Summer. It is time that I made some lifestyle changes and I'm going to work on that. Hope your summer is getting off to a great start!
