Cindy Bee Lady
I opened it up and look who was inside!!!
I knew right away it was from Pammy Sue! Note: before you go to her blog, you might want to take note that she has a bad day now and again, just like all of us, and she doesn't hold back. As she says, it's her real estate she can say what she wants!
So anyway, I took this rooster out of the envelope and she looked all sad and lonely. I asked her what was wrong and she said "Who is this Bee Lady and where are my brothers and sisters?" Well, it took all of five seconds for her to forget about her family, when she heard this low-slung whistle coming from somewhere..... her neck did a 180 and discovered this....
"hubba hubba" she said. And she got over her brothers and sisters in about five seconds. See, it's good sometimes not to take down your Thanksgiving decorations!
Now it looks like we gotta do something to make yours!
And here I thought I was gonna get an invite to a Tupperware party when a local blogger asked my mailing address. Phew!
So, my cousin Vickie and I were chatting on the phone a few days ago, perusing some blogs as we chatted, looking at crafty things to sew. We've been in a crafty sewing mood lately. A couple of months ago, the Scribe http://scribesvibe.blogspot.com/ told us where to find some crocheted hearts, and I made a bunch of them.
And as we were perusing the blog with the hearts http://juliacrossland.blogspot.com/ we discovered beachy stuff. And as we were blog hopping, we found other blogs with beachy stuff and we decided...we're going to make something beachy. Why beachy? BECAUSE WE MISS SUMMER.
Just for fun, and this is for you folks from the south only, can you guess what this is in this picture?
Yeah, it's snow....it's what snow looks like when it's been around since November. You still wanna make a snowman? Ok sorry - don't mean to let my "TIRED OF SNOW" personality come out. I thought I put her away for the rest of the season but she came back out last night, when we got a fresh coat of the white stuff...Not to worry, March 15 is right around the corner and I am ready...
Oh, and you want to know how grouchy people are right now, because EVERYONE Is tired of the snow and cold....I'll tell you. I'm in this parking lot. You can see it's huge, and it's fairly empty, and I stop to take a picture of the snow and this lady is sitting behind me honking her horn!! I'm serious! In an empty parking lot! GO AROUND ME FOR THE LOVE OF PETE! Of course, my cousin and her Irish temper started yelling at her....which is always funny...to me....when she does that....yells at people in other cars when they can't hear...
See, you can kind of see where I'm sitting and the empty parking lot! She is not going to ruin my beachy crafty fun day.
And Let me just SHOUT IT OUT, since I don't think it's any secret anymore that I HAVE A BASEMENT FULL OF STUFF, like yarn, material, beads, etc., all in a big jumbled mess. But what I like about it is when I get in a crafty fun mood, I just go shopping in my basement! So I did. And I pulled out everything beachy I could find.
sheets, shirts that don't fit my Shug (well he did want the blue striped one back and I said no), material from failed sewing projects, shower curtains purchased at garage sales, material purchased at garage sales that I thought later...why did I buy that and what will I ever do with it?
and we got busy...Vickie drew a pattern combining ideas from a couple of different blogs....and I started cutting material...
I didn't take too many pictures of the pillows in progress.
Ta Daaa....These pillows turned out so cute, but when we finished, we looked at each other and said..."what are we going to do with them?"
Who cares? It was a fun day spent crafting with Vickie.
PS - Pammy Sue just reminded me that I forgot to mention, those are BEACH HUTS, not outhouses! I suppose they could be used for either though!!!
