Just Another Ordinary Day!

Ahhhh, another beautiful day in Paradise although our Paradise is heating up pretty fast! 88 yesterday. That means the 90's are right around the corner!
I was able to go outside and get some wood cut out. 
I was nearing the end of my work when my Sander blew. A big POP and then billowing clouds of smoke came out from underneath the motor along with the sound of mechanical death as the motor ground to a halt. My Porter Cable was supposed to be an investment; something that would last years down the road. I got 2 years out of it.
Well, I'll just set back for a few days and sew.
I'm working on Sunflowers and crows. Also stuffing dolls. I made 2 of them for RAVENWOOD WHIMZIES Doll Challenge. As I stuffed them, I realized one of my legs was a bit bigger than the other. How did I do that? Same pattern but one leg is fat and the other skinny. SIGH....looks like I'll be cutting out another one. Can't wait to clothe them and show you and Wendy. Let's see if my 'great' ideas come to fruition!!
Don't forget about MILDRED
I'm giving her away on Monday, April 29th. I've almost completed the 'other' Mildred and will show you her picture on Monday so the winner can make her choice. You can find the link to my MILDRED Giveaway AND my Facebook Mystery Giveaway on my upper right sidebar. DO look at all of the other great Giveaways while you've got a minute. Some great things by some fantastic Artisans.
Hoping your day is sunny and bright and you're not blowing anything up!
I'll have lots more going on this next week as our OFG Team is gearing up for a Summer Celebration.
As my Mama always says, "Hold your Horses" and STAY TUNED!

Oh I hate that when my sander blows out ~ I seem to go through lots of them ~ always have them on my xmas list!!!
Looks like you've been busy as a bee ~ wonderful creations!!!
Today we're suppose to get warmer temps ~ 60 to 70's through the weekend ~ will be nice since it's been so cold!
Have a wonderful creative weekend!
