Mickey #who-can-keep-count-anymore made its appearance and farewell last night. Its not even cold weather yet and the fun is already picking up. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the bees that were stalking us seemed to disappear after the Cherry Blossom in the backyard lost its flowers (you were right Bezzie).
We had planted some corn in the back along with the pot veggies and as of yesterday morning, the corn was growing really nicely. As of this morning, some little animal (can anyone say squirrel) picked off all the corn and knocked over the corn plants. I hope the little sucker blows himself up in a power line. Um, yeah, not a fan of wildlife. Do squirrels even count as wildlife? :X
In crafty fun, Laura mentioned to me that there was another place in the city that had sewing lessons called Make Workshop. It was a funny coincidence because I'd just bought this book by Diana Rupp, the Make Workshop owner (with a hefty coupon that let me buy it for super cheap!).
The book comes with 10 beginner patterns plus a whole load of information with detailed pictures. I read this book from cover to cover the other day. I think I learned a lot and I'm sure I'm going to be using this as a reference guide. I'm wondering if I should put it under my pillow and pray for osmosis, like I did with my high school textbooks.
I've been practicing loading a bobbin and threading the machine. It doesn't seem quite as daunting after you've done it a few times. I can't wait for my second lesson!
I've got a really cool (in my humble opinion) FO to show, but didn't get to take a picture before I lost good light. I'll try to get it up tomorrow. I know I won't have time tonight because its the first night of Girl Scout's.
