Thanks for all the love for the spider! If you think your Christmas tree needs one, I highly encourage you to give it a try. Good directions. Very straightforward.
I got myself into the craft room earlier yesterday. I planned to sew something...and I know how sewing projects can turn into marathons when I get behind the pedal. In fact, the tutorial says the project will take about 45 minutes and it took me almost two hours. But don't be put off. I'm sure it will take most people much closer to 45 minutes. After all, I had to deal with a bobbin disaster right from the start.
Maggie--who has a birthday coming up--loves tea, lemon ginger to be specific and restaurants often don't carry it. In fact, they can't always find it in the grocery stores up there. So I am sending her an emergency stash and a carrier.
It's only been five days and the craft room looks like Michaels, AC Moore, and Joanne's exploded in there. I'm going to spend all of April cleaning up this mess, aren't I?
