daybook ::18::


for today :: May 5, 2010

outside my window. . .  the jasmine & orange blossoms are still working up a storm. . . it smells wonderful! . . . the sun is up. . . the weatherman says the sun is gonna be working hard this week! We're warming up!

I am thinking. . . of new ways to design/present my patterns. Met with a shop owner yesterday & got some good feedback. . .

from the kitchen. . .  coffee . . . so far. There will be salads this week. . . lots of salads. . . . Always the meal of choice when the weather warms. . . (well - that & gelato!)

I am wearing. . .  grey tee, pink shorts. . . 

I am creating. . . some piecing & applique today!. . .

I am remembering. . .  how much time I save when Dad is here to be my pattern stuffer - & post office/UPS deliverer . . . (Dad is visiting my brother & family in Minneapolis for 2 weeks)

I am reading. . .  A Lineage of Grace (Francine Rivers) . . . (slowly - the stories have so much to take in!)

I am hoping . . .  that Dad & Scott (my brother) have a great time - filled with wonderful memories.

I am hearing. . . Lots of birdie chirping & an owl or two (there are a pair nesting next-door!).

around the house. . . fabric, fabric everywhere. . . & a good deal of floss thrown in too!

I am going. . . to be a quilt top making machine today!

one of my favorite things. . .  our backyard. . . not at all what someone would think of for an Arizona backyard. . . ours is green with lots of flowers . . . (the only cactus is in a pot!) . . . It's my Dad's wonderful stamp on our home.

a few plans for the rest of the week. . . finishing up as many things as I can for Market. . . (& I'm not even doing a booth!)

from my picture journal . . .

 . . . one of the sweet bloomers in the backyard. . .

Hello.

I just came in from weeding the garden and the honeysuckle and jasmine are in full bloom. The scent is just heavenly!

Would you recommend Lineage of Grace?

Have a great time preparing for your market trip.

Your picture is beautiful!
