just like the droggy wild woods outside being awakened by the fresh spring rains, my creativity has been awakened by my thoughts and inspiration of what I want to start to embroider on.........or the other things I want to get my hands busy in putting together. Are you feeling the same?

I am not one to only super clean for "spring cleaning" . I keep a clean house always and try to keep clutter......."uncluttered". But I do love to go through my endless stash of things to start embroidering on and I love to re read and go through my collection of books to get inspiration to start a new project. I had decided a while back that I would not purchase anymore fabric, embroidery floss , or yarn, until I have used up what I have. For one reason.........I think I have more supplies than the local craft store......honestly!
Because of the weather being pretty outside, I turned once again to my cement making and decided to make a few garden pieces.
I had noticed somewhere on the net, lovely cement spheres sitting in a landscape, and wanted to make some of my own.
I am thrilled at how mine came out. I used cement dye for the colorful ones.
Now I am at a loss at exactly where I want to place them.
I am sure I will move these around to different places, until each piece feels like the perfect fit.
I also have stolen one of my husband's pink shirts............it is the most perfect shade of pink. I had talked him into purchasing it, because I thought it would look wonderful on him, but, he is not a lover of pink as myself, and he did not like the way it felt.................so I was happy to claim it. It is a bit over-sized..........but that is what I am wanting.
I am planning to wear it over a blouse, much like a light weight jacket.
I decided to tint just a bit of the design and embroider with different hues of pink embroidery floss. I will have more to show when I am finished.
I finished my " Home" embroidery. I added lantana, hollyhock, chickens in the yard,
a sweet bluebird in the tree, and to top it off........hearts coming out of the chimney.
My children recognized it as our home right off.
I have now only to stretch and frame it.
I hope the fresh rain and air of spring has put spark of creative inspiration in you.
I look forward to hearing about the journey or process of your creative thoughts.....and seeing the many wonderful results and projects that you get your hands busy in creating.
