Nathan found this little guy sunning himself on our driveway this evening.

Just a "common" Gopher Snake. Isn't he cute?

He is about 3 feet long.

We took him to a nature preserve area not to far from our home.
Oh the joys of living in the country......skunks, possums, and now snakes!
Hope he has a happy life in the wild.

Lookie what I did....

Some actual sewing!
One of my teacher friends is having a birthday this weekend and she loves Mary Engelbreit. I found this M.E. fabric on Etsy and knew I had to make something for her with it. This bag is similar to the Teacher Tote that I made last year.

The lining is made from some Robert Kaufman fabric that I had in my stash. And I fussy cut the pockets to feature the "Bloom" and "Heart" mottos.
I delivered the bag yesterday. She opened it in the teacher's lunch room, which was fairly full. I got a lot of compliments on the bag. Such a nice feeling!

Something new

Tonight my Mom mentioned that she'd looked at my blog and there hadn't been anything new for a while.

So, here you go Mom, something new....

My new "do"!
