Connor had such spring fever yesterday he just had to play outside and enjoy the sunshine...... How did I know that you say? Well the very quiet but high pitched whine he had while fidgeting at the back door was a little hint..... As you can see by the bright picture we are having a clear weather week even though it remains in the 40's..... brrrrr.... frost on the cars in the mornings cold.
I was able to go up to the garage and pull out a few must haves for my next project. I am working on a fabric collage inspired of course by Rebecca Sower. In her Inspiration section of her Blog sidebar you can see her fabric sampler like work. I have decided to use the old crochet edged table runner I got a few weekends ago at the vintage store for the base and to add little handworked pieces to it. I am playing around with several ideas on how to hang afterward too. So my box of fibers & threads gave me a little shot of happiness as I opened it last night. I have more than I remember and am pleased with the colors I pulled out to work with.
Now my bead collection didn't quite pass the same test. No oooohs No aaaaws when I opened this box. I really didn't have seed or bugle beads in my collection therefor I had little to add to my working stash. I did have fun going through my button collection, pulling all the ones that I hope to use on my work this weekend.......
I will show you some progress on Sunday for sure!
