Sunshine and Flowers

Not much happening here in the crafting world.  I think there’s too much going on elsewhere for me to really get focused in my studio.  It’s kind of driving me nuts.  I head upstairs every night, only to find myself standing in the closet doorway to my fabric, just looking.  Imagining all that I could, should and want to be creating.  Or, I will take out every skein of yarn that I own and lay it out on the floor, sniff it, touch it and then put it back again.  And then I find myself sitting at the computer, browsing the web for more wedding ideas, more information about wedding planning, more more more wedding wedding wedding.  It’s all good.  I have to say. All is going swimmingly in the planning department.  I am on the very tail end of getting a caterer, which has been – by far – the most painful part of this process.  So – that is good news. Then the fun can begin, and I can start making stuff for the wedding!  I did settle on a fabric for the wedding, and it’s not the Liz Scott line as I mentioned prior.  I went with Valori Wells Jenaveve linen line – all greens.  My inspiration came the other morning on my drive to work.  Last week was pretty dreary – but suddenly on Friday, the skies cleared and the sun came out.  Not only did the sun come out, but all the leaves were beginning to pop on all the trees and bushes, it was just a spectacular vision of beautiful new greens.  And I decided to go back to my original idea of greens as my colors.  Not one single green, but many various ones, like you would see on a sunny spring day.  That was a nice conclusion to come to.  Here’s a photo of some of the fabrics:

Loving the various greens to work with.

In other news, spring is here.  Mesa got her first haircut – she looks silly.  She also has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease – (grrrr, how I HATE ticks!!).  She had her first boat ride, her first sniff of flowers, taste of New England grass.  She’s a happy girl.

And, my gardens are going off!  A sure sign that spring is here to stay.  My tulips are painting my gardens with gorgeous colors, and yesterday I planted my beets, radishes, mesclun mix, lettuce, and swiss chard.  Pretty exciting.  So glad that spring is here to stay.  I hope all your gardens are thriving too!

The basics: I love New England (my home), the outdoors, gardening, cooking, sewing, knitting, my kitties, my puppy, my partner in crime Alex and my sons Griffin & Orion, and my family and friends. I occasionally have time to share the things I love here. Enjoy!
