May 1, 2012 - MAY DAY!!!

Happy May Day everyone...!!  I never really understood this day...dancing around a May Pole.. I'll have to GOOGLE that and see what the deal is!

I'm running late today!  I was awake at 4:30 am and told myself... DO NOT GET UP!!  So I didn't and fell back to sleep and woke up at 7:00!!  That is very unusual for me...so I feel like I have HOURS wasted. 

The Pinterest program decided to be a little stubborn this morning...so I couldn't get much for you.  Just as I would PIN something... or try to move it to my blog...the system would go down!  ARG... very frustrating.

I did find this beautiful "granny square" throw!!!  One of my friends (Susan) was making one the other day and it just put a bug into me... (like I have time to do this).  So.... I've just been collecting patterns and someday it may come to life!

Now... I'm normally not a fan of this type of throw...but I think the colors are beautiful.  I want to use pale colors tooo... to match my new quilt on the bed.  aaaahhhh... someday!!!  Susan... don't you love this?  It looks JUST LIKE YOU!!!


Then... look at this sweet little fellow!!  He's made from wool roving!!  Am I NOT the most adorable bunny????  Heather... can you make this sweet little fellow? (I know you can!)
I love his little nose... the way they've made it a different color... so precious!


Look at these yummy potatoes!!!  OMG... I love potatoes !  Unfortunately they are full of carbs and I'm trying to stay away from them (darn it anyway).  However... I may just have to make these and try a couple of slices.  They simply look too scrumptious to pass up.  Here's the recipe!

2 large potatoes, scrubbed
 3 Tbsp olive oil
 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning

 1 tsp salt
 4 Tbsp Parmesan cheese

 Slice potatoes into very thin slices (1/4 inch). big ziploc bag to coat the potatoes. Toss potatoes with olive oil, Italian seasoning and salt in a ziplock bag to coat.  Place in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake at 450 for 15 -20 minutes, until lightly brown.  Top with Parmesan cheese and bake an additional 5 minutes.
I could go for some of these right now... sprinkled with some green onion and a little dab of sour cream... oh my!!!  (my stomach just growled....)

Hey...check out this rug!!  I LOVE IT!!  Now... this is something else.  Isn't it cool?  I wonder where in the world they got the material for this thing? I went to the site and it's from Etsy.. .a long time ago.  Has anyone ever seen yarn like this (I guess it's some type of yarn)  I wonder what size hook they had to use!!!  WOW!!!!

Okay... I give up posting pictures... the computer is just not cooperating today and I'm about to pound it with a hammer.  So... instead... I'm off to the shower and getting my sewing room ready for a busy day.  My girlfriend, Merryanne, is coming to sew today and then we're having lunch out somewhere.  YUM... 
Have a super day and we'll hope tomorrow will be a better day for posting!
Make some stitches today!
