Spring is in the air! Well, yes, the ground is still covered with snow, but, this week we’re expecting temps in the forties and possibly up to 50 by Wednesday! Can I hear a woohoo?
I’m in a pillow making mood today. I cut out a pretty piece of pink fabric that I plan to add some large straight stitches to with some embroidery thread. I haven’t sewn in so long, I feel like it’s my first sewing project ever. I have to get my sea legs back before I advance to anything else. Before I moved here from Long Island, two years ago, I gave away shopping bags full of fabric. I think that now’s the time for some shopping – little bits and pieces of colorful fabric to turn into patchwork pillows and maybe some with ribbon embroidery. Or, perhaps, just to look at and enjoy.
Have thoughts of Spring inspired you to start any new projects? Are you eyeing your stash of brightly colored yarns and fabrics thinking what to start next? Enjoy the beautiful shift we’re experiencing this time of year and whatever projects you’re working on and take a moment to think about what’s bringing you joy in this very moment.
Whatever part of the world you’re reading this from, I hope you’re having a beautiful day.
