Kathy asked me what I was making with the string "fabric", so I thought I'd show. I did start out sewing many strings together. I then cut those into 5 inch wide strips.
I sewed the 5 inch strips together until I got close to the length that would work - in this case around 60 inches.
I have seven of those rows done and now I am sewing black 2 1/2 inch sashing between those strips. Mary Johnson has a much better tutorial here.
And just because I love you, I show you the perfect coffee or tea mug. I bought one of these for Mr. Muddling a while back and he liked it so much I bought one for Miss Ru and one for me. They are thermal, made by Aladdin. I bought ours in WalMart. They hold a full 16 ounces! I don't know about you, but in the morning.....I really want that much coffee!
Outside in the Land of Muddle, Spring has burst into full glorious bloom. The azaleas are just gorgeous! Of course I can also see so much work that needs to be done, but for now, I'm just going to enjoy the beauty.
And no, that is not dust. That is pollen, the downside to the bursting forth of Spring. LOL It's mostly tree pollen and at its height, it looks like a cloud of dust floating in the air. Not a lot of fun for people with allergies, but I'll take it in exchange for the cold weather we had any day!
Right now our windows are open and I am listening to so many birds singing. If I didn't know better I would think we were out in the countryside somewhere instead of a neighborhood in one of the biggest cities in the country! The mockingbirds have been singing almost around the clock. There is something so peaceful in going to sleep at night hearing birdsong.
I do hope it's peaceful and beautiful in your neighborhood! Have a good weekend.
Hugs and kisses,
