Thank you for all the comments lately. I love to hear from those who read my blog. I will definitely let you know what I think of my new books. They've all arrived now, but I've only flipped through the Lotta Jansdotter one so far. The sewing projects in it look very simple, some similar to the ideas in the Denyse Schmidt book and another of my favorites, Last Minute Fabric Gifts. But what really makes Lotta's final products so appealing is her fabric. Is her fabric available for purchase anywhere?
Well, for those of you in colder climates who have been feeling envious of the spring weather we Florida girls have been raving about, let me tell you that it does have its drawbacks. Kobe, the pup, was the first to start suffering from the pollen. He's now on a medication to relieve his skin allergy. I guess by keeping him inside more than usual, I also protected myself from the menacing yellow dust. Our school spent Wednesday outside at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm (more like a zoo). A few sneezes turned into a sinus infection and a day out sick from work. When I went back to school today, a lot of students had symptoms, too.
Also, a blanket of giant love bugs is covering our fence and garage. I guess they're harmless, but walking through piles of them gives me the creepy crawlies. This is funny: according to Wikipedia, legend has it that love bugs were created by accident at my alma mater. I do remember having masses of love bugs on my car after driving back to Gainesville in the spring. Hmmm.
So enough of spring! Bring on the suffocating humidity of summer. At least there's no pollen or love bugs!
