Brighter Days





Yes the sun has been shining and it lifts my spirits and causes me to want to create more!! Our kitties Moo & Ducky are enjoying the warm mid 60's degree weather we're having too.

























Even the daffodils and paperwhites are blooming!













I have been in the studio dyeing lots of ribbons and fabrics and then I hit a snag ........ searching for this card of antique glass buttons that are sewn onto a cardboard in the shape of a fan. I have looked at these intricate little buttons for many months not wanting to cut them away from each other, but I have to do it. I want to use them in some new flower pins. So I went to find it and couldn't. It was in that special place you put things when you want to be able to find them. It took me an hour and a prayer to St. Anthony (the patron St. of lost things) before I had the "aha!" moment and knew where it was. Here is a photo of these beautiful little glass creations.




I'm off now to San Jose to the Quilt & Textile museum to switch out some items I have for sale there but tomorrow I'll be back in my studio happily creating as long as the sun is shining so brightly!

What a great card of glass buttons! I'm very jealous of your sun (that's the shiny orb that's rarely seen in Michigan in the winter, right?) and warm temperature (going down to single digits here tonight, with wind chill down to minus 20 predicted for tomorrow).
