It feels like autumn at my house today. (& word verification & curves class)

That's a good thing, because I love autumn and winter. And it's a good thing because it IS autumn! It's March! I was just saying to someone today that I can't believe that it's not January. (My daughter told me to quit living in the past!) It was a grey rainy day here, my favourite kind of day!

Have you been bothered by the new word verification thing? Chookyblue wrote an interesting blog post today on how she is dealing with the change. You can read it here if you like. I have deleted the word verification on my comments now and will see how it goes! (I was going cross-eyed trying to work out what they were!)

My newly sewn bunting
At the beginning of February I started an on-line class with Rachel of Stitched in Color. I haven't mentioned it here on the blog before because I also moved at the beginning of February and the class was put on the back-burner. Well, I am finally getting into the class! This finish is one of my curves class week one projects! I decided to join in with the curves class camp which includes chat sessions once a week and the opportunity to have access to the class materials for a couple of months, so I still have time to complete the class! I have really enjoyed the chat sessions and have learnt something new each week in the session! My newly sewn bunting is for one of my granddaughters and is made from some offcuts from a blouse I made her ages ago. I love that fabric! (American Jane)

I still have the buttons to sew on the eight blouses made over the past week. Perhaps I will do that tomorrow. Buttons and baking are what I have planned for tomorrow. We'll see what happens.....

Mines gone to. I'm glad I wasn't the only one going cross eyed. Funnily enough I didn't have much trouble working it out on the ipad last night while I was surfing wonder if it had something to do with the angle that it was on (the screen was on my lap and I was looking directly down?)

I tried to take the word verification thingy off my blog but even with Chooky's instructions it wouldn't work :( *sigh*

your bunting looks great!

I have really been enjoying working on the curves class projects. I didn't do the camp, so I'm interested in hearing about the chat sessions, so I can think about opting for that when I do another class, sometime...
