Even though--or perhaps because--winter limits my outdoor activities, I have been pleasantly laboring in a different type of garden. Not among living things, but surrounded by yards of printed fabric. At last, a place where the lilies, dahlias, and flowers more fantastic are always in bloom.
Over the past month, I've made this apples and ladybugs grocery tote for my daughter . . .
then, a flouncy sundress for my niece . . . .
a tissue holder . . .
and laid out strips for the first of many log cabin blocks . . .
As the days eek by, gray and gloomy, I seem to be turning towards increasingly vibrant and color-saturated designs. By March, I'll be incorporating LEDs into my stitching projects! Not the greatest grow-lights, but then, I'm sewing, not sowing.
