The crocuses started blooming on Tuesday. Then it snowed on Wednesday (yesterday). Oh well, I've always wanted to take pictures of crocuses blooming in the snow.
School was cancelled (???). I won't question the wisdom of the School Board as I'm sure they had good intentions. It did afford me the opportunity to make some eggs ala Martha with the able assistance of at least one of my children. My workspace looked a little messier than Martha's but I'm pleased with the end result. Note that I haven't applied a coat of Mod Podge to the outside yet to seal them.
As you might guess we have a little more fabric lying around here than fancy origami paper, so I tried out some of that as well.
The fabric egg looks OK, but I prefer the origami ones. It was harder to get the fabric to lie flat. This particular fabric was hand painted and I think that helped to keep it from fraying during the gluing process.
I made a very cute tote bag last week to give to a 7 year old girl for her birthday. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of it as the camera was already with Team Doran Racing (at the Pinewood Derby) by the time I finished up the tote. (Aside: I'm finally hip and cool enough to have a camera on my phone, but not hip and cool enough to remember I have it.) Anyway, it was so fun and fast that I'll probably be making another one for an upcoming little girl's birthday and I'll be sure to take a picture of that one.
