Sewing…

I have been sewing this week. Since I do not have a permanent place to set up my sewing machine, I usually will try to gather all kinds of sewing projects together once I got it out. So I have been sewing, mending things, altering pains, working on small projects. I’ve even introduced one of my friends to the world of sewing machine, and she actually went out and got one the next day, which I find very amusing~ I must have been a very good teacher!! ;-)

One little thing I was working on was to recreate a gear lever cover for my car. Don’t laugh, I have all kinds of accessories in my car, and this is one of them. I’ve bought it like five or six years ago, and it is pretty beat up. So I’ve turned this:

When I showed it to my DH, his comment was: you have way too much time on your hands!!! LOL!!! DH took the car today so I’ll post  a photo of it in my car later. (Photo added: 05-11)

I also have Charlie Brown on my rear view mirror and snoopy on my seatbelt cover~ I know, I’m obsessed!!

The weather has been beautiful here the past couple weeks and I’ve been taking walks on the trail near my home. With the abundant  rain this year, the wildflowers are blooming like crazy!!! Mountains and fields in southern California were usually brown and dry, so it is really nice to see all this greenery for a change. Here are some scenery from the trail I would like to share with you~
