Happy Spring Break, you guys! The Seattle schools are off this week for spring break, which means my sewing classes are off, too.
So what’s a girl to do with a whole week of spring break all to herself? Should I go to the beach? Should I sun myself and drink tropical drinks by the pool?
Of course not! I live in Seattle where my spring break consists of knitting, drinking coffee and (maybe) a little yard work if the sun comes out.
Yesterday was lovely and sunny, but the day before was crazy! Pouring rain, sun, hail, and crazy wind. That was some of the weirdest weather I’d seen here in years. We even had “sun-showers,” where it was simultaneously pouring and super sunny.

That’s right. Goats. (Especially baby ones.)
(I spent the afternoon yesterday at one of my favorite local breweries, sipping tasty beer and saying high to a whole herd of baby goats from the Puget Sound Goat Rescue! They were tiny (smaller than my dog), and so stinking cute. Seattle is the best! Where else would you get to pet baby goats on a Tuesday afternoon?)
