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!
