.3 happy things.

After reading this post from hop skip jump, I am designating Friday as the day to blog 3 things that have made me happy during the week. Something to help me sum up the week and get ready for the weekend...

1. Lemons, lemons, lemons...the lemon tree out the back has FINALLY started to ripen up and we have been able to start picking and enjoying the golden goodness. Lemons would have to be my most favourite flavour ever, so you can just imagine my excitement. When I picked them, I kept taking them over to Jaron and shoving them in his face, "mmm, smell this one honey - isn't that soo good?!!" Heavenly...
2. Sewing. Some weeks the sewing groove hits and this week was one of those. Lots of fun little sewing projects going on to keep me entertained. This nappy bag being one of them, a sample for Picture Patchwork made from Amy Butler's pattern. My nappy bag pattern has had such a work out, I was trying to count up the number of nappy bags I had made from it when I was putting this one together and it must be somewhere around 15! Its a keeper for sure, I don't even have to look at the instructions anymore!
Also in the sewing pipeline, I have come up with another funky pattern design this week. I am loving it...alot. No peeks yet as I am still tweaking it a bit. Lil has been the lucky recipient of a prototype made from this super cute Little Red RidingHood Japanese print fabric I bought from here. Every time I look at it, it makes me smile.
3. Although it is still pretty chilly around here, the sun has been making a bit more of an appearance and the days are getting noticeably longer. There have even been some days this week that I have been able to turn the heater off during the day and still be comfortable. We have even had a few spring time flowers show their cheery faces out in the garden. It thought of warmer weather around the corner isn't enough to make you happy, then I don't know what is!Feel free to join in and share "3 happy things" too!

P.S. Is anyone else soo excited about the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony tonight, I can't wait!!!

Thankyou for playing along! We got no lemons on our tree this year, so it's lovely to see yours. :)
