Taking a minute to enjoy the simple pleasures...

Back in the saddle

With some minutes today, I found a dress I started working on last year. Burda 7517. Darts and pleats are in for back and if feels great. With progress, hopefully soon, I will post pics in good light.

Easter eggs

All in a row, our beautiful eggs. We used onion skins, rubber bands and glitter.

Pillow fight

Miss v needed a new pillowcase for naptime. She picked the fabrics from stash - a nice ticking, yellow repurposed napkin. I added the frog. She likes it all ... except the frog. Oh well. I'm happy to have made her something she'll use and, hopefully, learn to love.

Freely float

'Up in the Sky' by Majalin

  • I just stumbled upon Take your Life Back Using Microsoft Outlook by Sally McGee (via Scoutie Girl). Tips that are helpful and not overwhelming. With my recent conversion to iphone, I am loving anything that will get me more organized and doing.
  • I need to get motivated to take back my sewing area/office. After the craft show hurricane comes through, I need to re-group. I find myself doing everything except want to spend time in there. I hope to dedicate some time to spring cleaning, organizing, and finding ways to making this space more inviting for me.
  • As much as I love springtime, I am feeling frozen. We had a talented landscape architect neighbor draw up some plans. Now, with budget and schedules in hand, it is time to prioritize. I know it will feel better once there is a plan but for now, all our ideas are swirly and a bit overwhelming. I hope our seedlings in raised beds make it....

What a beauty

Capturing this vision before it fades. If I don't snap a photo, I might forget this vision. Spring keeps surprising me. And that is a good thing.

G and uncle Andy ran a race this morn. We're tourists in our own fair Baltimore.

Sense with scents

Everywhere I look, I'm starting to see spring. When hyacinths are cut and brought indoors, they quadruple their size with their fragrance.
