Its Like Spring Outside

Its been such a great weekend. In Arizona this is the time of year we get to enjoy. Its been in the 70's and it has been perfect. Driving in my car I heard several vintage Elton John songs. Love, love, love Bennie and the Jets. :) I think I need to find a copy of Captain Fantastic somewhere. Great memories of the 70's. I also have been catching up with good friends this weekend. Dont you just love a great meal, hanging out with other creative people? I leave so inspired.
My new studio is working out great and just as I had hoped. Having one large room in the heart of my apartment is so convenient. I am definately getting more done. I wanted to share a couple new projects. I have been making these fabric flowers. They are so easy and alot of fun. I like as many components in my work to be completely handmade as possible. These flowers can be used in so many ways. I am working on a bride doll and I want to make lots of small white ones to embellish her gown. This doll is a work in progress and working out the kinks in the pattern, but its what I love doing the most. I have made a couple more cupcake pillows and since spring has been in the air this week I am starting my Easter pillows. This is my first chocolate Easter Bunny. You never know what I will feel like creating. One morning before work I came up with this pin cushion. I have more things in various stages of done and I will share them later.

I just got home from Trader Joes and found these frozen macaroni and cheese bites. Three different sales clerks told me these were awesome. So thats what I am having for lunch:) I guess I will go and give them a try. Have a great week.
