Are you having everyone over for Easter Dinner? Do you have everything you want to make it a fancy dinner? There's always room for something else when it comes to making things fancy! Making your kitchen an inviting and comfortable place can be done in so many ways... and many small projects can make a huge difference.
This past week we actually hit a very welcomed eighty degrees... to go back to snow and freezing overnight temperatures. That's OK though...it gave us a taste of what is ahead. I didn't hear one person complain about the warm temperatures... and I saw a lot more smiles that you see when it's cold out. I'm thinking that Welcome Spring flags are called for after this loooooooooooong winter that we are finally emerging from!
You still have time to make something special to fill those Easter baskets! Free patterns and your scrap bin... along with other economical fabric resources, make the perfect combinations to fill the basket or just make something special for a special child in your life... maybe just to help out a parent who you know is having a tough time making ends meet.
This winter seemed to last forever, making Spring cleaning a much needed task. After loving the way the cookbook cover turned out as a birthday gift, I made myself a notebook cover to organize my internet recipe printouts... and have even started the daunting task of organizing all the recipes. As I was sorting through the pile on my printer to take the recipes, I discovered many pattern printouts that also needed a home. As I stuffed recipes into the page protectors, I decided to purchase another large notebook and page protectors to give those free pattern printouts a new home. The page protectors will be prefect for holding all of the pattern pieces even after they are all cut out.
