Happy Groundhog Day!

So Phil saw his shadow and we’re going to have 6 more weeks of Winter.  Great. I have to be honest if the New England Winter is going to continue like this for 6 more months I’m all for it!  Yesterday was in the 50s and today is in the 40s – not to bad for Winter!  Well I guess the question is will it be 6 weeks of this:  or 6 weeks of this: .  I’m hoping it’s an early spring and we’ll see the flowers real soon!  There’s are star-gazer lilies from my flowerpot last year and I already mis their bright colors.

Girl Scouts was last night and we’re doing something different – we actually split into 2 groups – 1 to do scrapbooking and 1 to do sewing – for 2 weeks and then we’ll switch.  I think this will make our groups more manageable since we’re a troop of 15!  I taught the sewing (surprise – NOT) and I taught the girls how to thread a needle, knotting thread, basic stitches – straight and whip stitch and how to sew on a button.  They did great!  Hopefully there will be some practice between now and next Wednesday, but overall they are going in the right direction.  Inspired by a scout’s foam pocketbook, we’re going to make a red heart purse!  The purse will be made of red felt and the strap will be white lace.  They’re going to decorate the outside of the purse with buttons, lace and fabric to personalize it.  I thought it would be a great Valentine’s item and the sewing techniques would be a great foundation for what’s to come.  So take out your needle and thread out and show off what you come up with for Valentine’s Day!  Something simple.  If you don’t know how to sew – CALL ME!!  I’ve got all the supplies to come over and walk you thru your own Valentine’s Day purse!!!  Can’t wait!  Have a Magical Day!
