Spring Takes Flight

potholder

Heidi sent me this beautiful potholder because it reminded her of my new bird canvas. This bit of cheer by mail did wonders for me after a long rainy weekend of feeling blah. Thanks so much Heidi!

I was especially encouraged Monday when no less than half my parents showed up for parent conferences! This year I have the "high" class and with such dedicated parents it's no wonder. Plus, out of the blue, I got translation services and didn't have to do all the translation myself. I do speak enough Spanish to get by, but just barely. I really have to work at it and concentrate very hard.

The upside for me out of the Crayon Box is that I am much more rested. So, I have a few things lined up for this week.
vera napkin
This napkin was one of the things I picked up at the last Sunday $1 sale at Jet Rag. I had been looking for some linens for Barb's Purse Challenge. The print of this is really happy and while I wish I had a full set, one is perfect for some sort of project. I am thinking of either the accordion fold wallet from Simple Gifts to Stitch or the No Cash wallet from Bend the Rules Sewing.

Cute pot holder!

I always pick up stray Vera napkins, too. I can't wait to see you transform it. :)
