Fabric Saturday

I know you think I can't see a project through. *sigh* The quilt was a bit ambitious. I got busy grading homework and hanging out with Jax and the next thing I knew the class was over. I tried to go in and download the rest of the lessons, but they had already changed the password. Now I have a quilt cut out and I have to figure out how to put it together!

In the meantime, I've decided to do a couple of projects that are a bit smaller in scope and have a deadline. Up first is a stuffed rabbit for Jaxon's Easter basket. The pattern is the Big Footed Bunny from Wee Wonderfuls. So cute!

Mom and I went to the fabric store today and put together this combination:

The body will be the blue gray. It's a thin wale corduroy. The body accents will be the creamy flannel. The bunny's shorts will be the super cool retro cars flannel with green grosgrain suspenders.

I promise to have this done by Easter. Which is only one week away. ACK! Can anyone tell me how to embroider eyes?


Surplus Auction: Winter 2007

This quarter's surplus auction was a big success. We bought 8 chairs and 6 tables for $27.

These tables have metal bases and white melanine tops. I sold one with a brown top to one of my students. I'm going to use the ones in the best shape as a coffee table/side table in our family room.

These children's chairs need a good coat of paint, but I think they will be really cute. They had really great old school chairs in children's size, but they ended up going for $33 each! These were $5. I also got three office chairs for $1 that I thought we could use at work.

But the deal of the century has to be these three mod chairs I picked up for $1. The armchair is a genuine Knoll tulip chair designed by Eero Saarinen. I looked in to selling it on eBay for a tidy profit, but I think I am going to clean it up and keep it. It's just too cool not to. If anyone knows anything about getting scuffs off fiberglass, let me know.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Time to celebrate the wearin' o' the green! And like most holidays, we celebrated with food.

Here is our good Irish dinner: corned beef, cabbage, and boiled potatoes. Yummy!

Here is our good non-Irish dessert: Key Lime Pie. It's green! Super yummy!

And here is our good semi-Irish leprechaun. Super duper yummy!!

Spring begins in three days! Too bad it snowed here today...
