Looks like a good day to sit by the window and sew.
I love to watch a storm blow in. Dramatic, beautiful, little bit scary, making you realize just how big the sky is up there. My favorite kind of day.
The huge raindrops make a pretty pattern on the sidewalk. Later I’ll send the kids out to puddle-stomp and make muddy footprints all over the porch.
I finally sewed this appliqued panel into a pillow this week! I never had a plan for the arrangement of these shapes, I just sort of piled them on there. I love how it turned out. Everything I did here, I want to do again on a bigger scale- the orange peel shapes, the random curvy hand quilting, the neutral colors with just a bit of bright color. I’m glad I at least have something small that I’ve finished, though!
In other news, are you on Instagram? I finally upgraded my phone so I could join, and I’m finding it really hard to get back to blogging now that I’m on IG! It is just so easy and informal. Love it.
