Since returning from our trip, I have cleaned and sorted three closets and one cabinet – things I somehow missed (or avoided) in my late December post-holiday clean-up. I wonder how I managed that??!! It was just enough work to put me back in the mood to sew again. A few cleared out spaces and a new outlook –
This picture is from an old learning to read book that belongs to my sister. (Click to enlarge.) I think the story was about Spring’s arrival. As you can see Robin is making an enthusiastic announcement! That’s how I feel today. At 7am this morning I drew back the curtains and the sky was overcast and not very encouraging. An hour and a half later, the sky was a bright and beautiful blue with fluffy (or so they appeared) white clouds. It was just right for a fresh start with some new ideas for bears, bunnies, fairies and the like.
I ventured into the sun and took a look around our yard overlooking the fact that our lawn most definitely needs mowing. I took this photo . . .
and this photo . . .
and then had lunch at a friend’s house where I took this photo . . .
Now, it’s time to sew. I'm not sure it gets much better than this.
