Wall Hanging and Mars Hoax
by Callie on Monday, May 18, 2009
Well, I'm pretty sure this is not how you are supposed to do applique, but this is my first attempt and this is the way I'm doing it. I drew out the flower and then cut out paper shapes, cut out the fabric, turned the edges, basted it down and now the next step is to sew it to the backing. Pretty simple shapes. I just want to add some color to the wall.
Here is some filler.
Another shot of the view on the way to town.
Today I received two forwarded emails. Both about earth and mars being so close in August that they will look almost the same size to the naked eye. I checked out Snopes and they say it is False.
If you would like to read the Snopes report:
Phooey! I was looking forward
to seeing mars look so close.
[Oops! I just read that I do not want to see Mars
that close. Bad things would happen.]
It was in the 90's today
and the chickens took time off.
only 7 eggs today.
Hope you had a great weekend!
