Walk the line

I'm really digging this blog. I went out and bought Amy Karol's book this weekend, Bend the Rules Sewing. Of course, I have a hard time "bending the rules" when it comes to craft stuff. I can do it at work, but not creatively. It's strange to see this in myself. I rarely deviate from recipes, and even struggled with the lasagna garden. Lars suggested a different combination of layering than what the author did, and I struggled with going with that. In any case, Amy Karol seems like someone I would like to be friends with: she likes aprons, she cooks and makes home ec seem chic. Check it out.

I have a funny schedule this week, but I am not complaining. I am picking my parents up from the airport Wednesday, so I look forward to seeing them. I'm glad the snow melted before they returned home. The grass is getting greener but the temperatures are seasonal. My father will return in a fury of activity, which will last until October.

I guess I am just a rule breaker when it come to crafts. I alway assumed they were loose guidelines anyway. I can't wait to see pictures of the garden.
