Spring has arrived

Spring has officially arrived at our home. My crazy husband planted 1500 tulip bulbs last fall and fought with the deer to keep them growing. I think my husband won! Enjoy the display, I sure do.

Happy Easter

It's been a while, I know. Working full time has put a crimp in my creative spirit, but Spring seems to be here and with it a new sense of inspiration.
I was hoping to participate in the SWAP at Stitcher's Guild, but I never got much past thinking and planning.
I did make this Sewing Workshop pattern. It's the Now shirt. The fabric is a beaded, silk batik that came from the home dec department of JoAnn Fabrics. It was on sale (last fall) for $4.50/yd. I really liked the way this pattern went together. Next time I make it I will lengthen it by at least two inches. I have another vacation from work in two weeks, so hopefully more sewing is ahead...stay tuned!
