Sunshine and carrots

I have found that spring cleaning can actually be quite fun. Today not only did I do all the typical chores (vacuuming, dusting, swiffering), but I sorted through my dresser drawers and closet, pulling out all my dark and heavy winter items for storage. I brought them down to the basement, sorted through the plastic storage tubs and grabbed a few spring-ish things, pleasantly surprized once again that I have a lot of spring/summer clothes. There are always some that I forget about but that I really do like. Because the weather is finally bright and sunny, I went out onto the deck to inspect the weather damage to our patio furniture (not so bad, thankfully), and after being inspired by Alicia's post, I decided to wash the shelves in my refridgerator too.
While doing laundry earlier this week, I came across a bag of tag sale linens that I picked up last May, so I threw a few into the wash and now I've got to find out how to use them. This awesome apron is one of them. The colors are wonderful-- I love finding things that match my kitchen. The fabric is linen though, so even though I ironed the heck out of it, it still looks wrinkley. The carrots are too cute, don't you think?
I emailed someone who posted an offer of free yarn on freecycle , but she hasn't replied yet. I have wanted to make some granny squares, but I don't really own much yarn aside from the second-hand Christmas afghan kit I brought home from Chicago. (I'm pretty sure I'd tire quickly of only green, white & red granny squares.) If she doesn't get back to me today I might have to pass on it. Tomorrow I'm planning to drive up to Boston early and attend church with Maria & Gregory. They tell me their church is big and crowded so they wouldn't notice an extra visitor. I miss big crowded Greek churches with chantors and incense... If it isn't too hard to get to, I think I'll try to convince Costas to spend Pascha up there this year.

try putting a mix of one third white vinegar and two thirds water in a spray bottle and dampening your apron with it. Gets the wrinkles out of just about ANYTHING.

Love the apron! My fridge could use some cleaning too.

If you want yarn, I might be able to help. I need to clean out my massive amount in my craft closet and can send you a big box full. I used to buy tons and after finding quilting I haven't made an afghan in years. I wanted to clean out and organize but had no idea who or what to do with it. Just email me and we'll talk.
