 it's been so beautiful in my surroundings these past few days due to a light constant drizzle with a bit of rain at night.  i couldn't help but stand in it, take in the fresh air, observe nature's bliss at its cleansing.  being a bit outdoors and bit indoors a bit at a time, picking the last tomatoes, playing with Calico Cat, eating apple dumplings, watching a great oldie (Brief Encounter over which I sob and sob and sob every time), gathering kindling for the fire, lighting an apple cinnamon candle and then sewing way into the night.  this time i made an entirely handstitched small bird art quiltie in pastel colors and all natural fabrics (linen and cotton) and tried to use only natural embellishments, straying a bit with a plastic cab and a metal letter L which i pinched from my perfume bottle.  I love this new trend in quilties-naive and bright and spreading happiness. i keep rolling but fear when mental block will set in since i get very frustrated for weeks when that happens.  so enjoying every minute of creativity i can.


this family of mushrooms just blew me away as i got closer to my geraniums, look at the baby!



how could i not become inspired?




and the day just keeps on giving!

All I've been doing is eating and watching TV, if the weather doesn't change soon, my first trip will be to the mall: I'll need clothes 3 sizes bigger! LOL!!! Keep working and enjoying it!!!
