Hello March

To be honest, March is not my favorite month. It's long and nowadays it's spoiled by the pressures of State Testing. Bring on the sewing therapy!

Two weeks ago I helped my friend Nicole go on an IKEA shopping spree to redecorate her apartment. Decorating? IKEA? Nicole's charge card? Count me in!

Anyway, in the market place section they had bundles of sticks. They look fantastic tucked in vases around her apartment. Lucky for me there were extras. So it was that Cliff discovered a sizable bundle of five foot sticks in my car on Sunday.

"I suppose your going to "make something"? Poor Cliff. It's a loosing battle. I like stuff! Especially stuff with potential to be made into other stuff. I was thrilled to get the sticks. I can't just go out into the back yard to get a stick whenever I want you know!

I am hoping those cheery green circles and some sticks will become some sort of spring mobile. I am not sure if I am going to paint the sticks or leave them natural.

Any thoughts?

No, but I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I do love the green and yellow.

I like them natural because then you could easily adapt them to other seasons. Can't wait to see the outcome!
