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!
