MEME: The Second

(A sideline note first)

I taught a sewing class last night! A friend of mine had asked if I would teach her to make my latest ‘hobo’ bag, and she offered to line up a few other ladies for a ‘girl’s night’. Sure, sounds great to me! I thought. And it was.

And now I have learned three things:

1. Our project should have been a two night project. It took us over 7 hours. I didn’t get home till 1:30AM. (And you should see my hungover eyes this morning!)

2. I am not a perfectionist when it comes to sewing (I already knew this, but now I know for SURE).

3. Things I might think are easy, aren’t.

And now for my Tuesday MEME. If you are following along, we are playing Make-it-a-MEME week long celebration. (Otherwise known as Make-fun-of-MEMEs week).You can snag my button from the post below. (I promise the tute for the 'TextArea' box is on it's little way...)

MEME: the second.

What I like to call Picture Prose. I was going to do this post anyway, so I’m cheating and calling it a MEME. Which is dumb and doesn’t make sense. Just follow along anyway, (that’s what a MEME is afterall). You can pick up my button from the post below.

You know it’s summer when:

(In Utah we skip spring altogether. We go straight from MayDay snow, to 90+ degrees, and fighting with the sprinkler system). So if a MEME is a virus, then this one is SpringFever.

Is this award winning or what? I followed every single step of thePioneerWoman's photo enhancement here. Well, almost. This is my flowering CrabApple tree. Gorgeous in the spring, and smells wonderful. (But cleaning up the large crabapples, gives me the crabiness in the fall.)

A BUZZ CUT! 'Nuff said.

Does anyone know what this is? I nearly dug it out last year, I think I'm glad I didn't?

Finally not too worried about frost. Tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow peppers, basil, cilantro, and some lettuce I started a few weeks ago....YUM. Patience....

My first Iris of the season. Already there are 20 or 30 open! Irises are my mother's favorite flowers. Makes me think of her, and almost in time for Mother's Day?

Jamie's Tag is next...

Now I'm off to get the youngest to preschool, catch up on groceries (we've been reduced to eating peanut butter straight out of the jar), and catch up on some of your blogs...

but don't you see? That's the joke, I'm not getting much done at all. The breakfast dishes are still sitting in the sink. But dang I look good. I just got a haircut!

Oh my heck! I was featured. And it didn't hurt or anything!
