Everyone does their taxes on a ironing board, right? I am so glad that’s over with for another year. It was great to take three business related trips this year, but the receipt avalanche was not. After all that number crunching, I rewarded myself with a new pattern. Indie patterns are frequently only available via computer download. I have been resisting this. I don’t want to print out a bunch of sheets of paper and then tape them together to make a pattern. But I did. And I am very happy with the results. This is my version of the Scout Woven T-shirt by Grainline Patterns. Next up, I think I will marry this pattern to this fabric. Wish me luck. The first time I tried to do this, Kato-the-Cat barfed all over the fabric. We lowered the blackout curtain in our bedroom. Just another small sign that spring is on its way. Fletcher, our oldest, turned 16 on the 12th. I asked him to pose for a few photos. This is what I got. For his sixth grade building project, Ozzy decided to build a replica of the Old Hardware Store in downtown McCarthy, Alaska.He got a Paw Print Award for his efforts. Which reminds me. The Hardware Store is where the Wrangell Mountains Center is located. I’m having a little fundraiser at my house for this fine non-profit educational institution on Friday, April 25th. Good music, good food, and good peps all for a good cause. I invite you to join us. Come on, how many times do I have to ask you before you’ll say yes? Thank you all for stopping by. I wish each of you a great week of sunny spring goodness.
