Warm weather, all things being relative.....

Good Morning on this beautiful 48 degree day. We have had 2 beautiful days and I am enjoying the snow melting. We still have 5 foot snowbanks.

I have been papercrafting, making rosettes and banners. Oooh what fun, much easier than quilts and quilting. I did take a class for a new quilt which I am anxious to make, not so anxious as to put away the papercrafting, so I will do it when the spirit moves me and keep out my papers and cardstocks for now.

One thing begets another and I am making some of my own embellishments. 3 D embellishments, chickies, hearts,presents and eggs. (Easter,of course)

I did find a great punch this last week, it is Martha Stewarts lacy one, pricey but worth it.
I also bought some of Martha's border papers and stickers, all at Michaels Craft stores.
Papers fascinate me.

My daughter and I are going to set a date to go to Amherst for a couple of day visit with Ashley, she is at Hampshire college for her last year. We will eat out and visit the bead store, as well as the yarn store and dangle through all the stores in Northampton, there are vintage stores which sell the things we all threw out when our closets got to crowded. I always wonder about the people who still had all this 'crap' we wouldn't have worn on a bet. Even though I am not 'in fashion' and hate to shop I would not have kept bell bottoms or acrylic sweaters or corduroy jeans and outdated heels. Bad me, I could sell them in some of the online vintage stores.

Well, enough blathering on for now. Have a nice week everyone.
