for today :: March 15, 2010
outside my window. . . it's still dark. . . can't tell yet, but today is supposed to be warm & sunny (!)
I am thinking. . . of too many things. . . that's why I'm up at 4 a.m.. . .
from the kitchen. . . I'm holding off starting the coffee, but I'm thinking that will be happening really soon. . . I also think there will be a mocha at least once today come from the kitchen. . . (big surprise, huh?!)
I am wearing. . . jammies & a sweater (I'm also under the blankets on my bed & have a personal little body warmer named 'Bailey' next to me.)
I am creating. . . new designs for my new fabrics . . . & I'm also working on my wool-on-linen applique
I am remembering. . . how fast the time will go between now & Spring Market. . .
I am reading. . . Country Living, & British Country Living (I love both of them!)
I am hoping . . . that we see a little baby hummingbird in the nest today (see below).
I am hearing. . . the antique clock in my studio, & an owl that I have been hearing outside my window for the past few weeks. (I wish I could catch sight of it!)
around the house. . . spring is appearing in the quilts, flowers & accessories. . . I just love bringing out the 'spring-y' stuff!
I am going. . . to deliver some patterns today, & then to pick up some patterns from the printer, & a few other errands - otherwise, it's a studio day.
one of my favorite things. . . embroidery, needlework. Seriously, I could do it all day & not tire of it.
a few plans for the rest of the week. . . hopefully make some real progress with the new designs, & getting outside to enjoy (it's supposed to reach 80 this week!) :o)
from my picture journal. . .
. . . this is what I did yesterday. . . Susan Branch twittered & let us all know about this amazing webcam of a little hummingbird, Phoebe, & her little nest - where there are two tiny little eggs. By nightfall yesterday (Sunday) - one of them was beginning to hatch. . . ! It was mesmerizing to watch & it was the perfect company while I worked on my wool stitchery. If you want to watch today (warning. . . it's addictive!) - you can find little Phoebe - here.
