We decided to change over to more energy efficient light bulbs -- the whole house all at once! It will be interesting to see if it affects our bill, but it feels more responsible anyway.I'm getting accostomed to the fact that the bulbs take a few minutes to warm up to full strength. And I'm turning on lights less frequently anyway. I mean really, do I need to turn the light on in the bathroom? I know where everything is and I don't intend to be there long.
I got the skirt itch again. Every spring I think I need to make myself a skirt. I was in love with a skirt in Threads magazine about three years ago. This year I actually bought fabric. I'm going to whip up a little reversible wrap number. We'll see how it turns out.
Maybe if it's warm enough, I'll wear bring it on my trip to Maine. Yes, I'm going to visit the Frayed Edges (here and here) this weekend. So fun! I can hardly wait. I'm also going to get a chance to have lunch with Joanne.
I started the hand embroidery on the large landscape. I'm also planning to do some free motion quilting and I think it can be challenging to combine the two. So I'm working carefully and referring to Kristin and Melly's work -- they have most excellent examples of handwork combined with machine work.
