I shared a little yesterday about the grand arrival of Spring in Minnesota. Here are a few more pictures today, watching the melt off. Everyone is excited to be outside. The stroller is no longer snowed in!
I had to laugh at how excited Ben was just to touch the ground.
This is our back yard. We need a boat!
This weekend I missed the “Picture Smocking” class with Cyndy Pond at the Textile Center in Minneapolis. I have done the “back smocking” homework, and I plan to work through the class notes prior to the late-April meeting. I’m looking forward to comparing my work along with those who were in attendance. The great thing about being part of the smocking arts guild local chapter is that you can ask all your questions at a later date, and the support is always there. I hope the rest of the ladies all had a great time.
I suppose the benefit of being at home instead was that my husband made a batch of absolutely beautiful bread, and I didn’t miss it.
Recently, I spotted a few things online that I greatly enjoyed. One is this post by a Saville Row tailor, Davide Taub, who created a bespoke child’s hooded boat cape in a mid-night navy blue cashmere. Wow.
I also had a smile when I saw two things on the Janice Ferguson Sews blog. First, I love this pillow.
And this little dress is entirely sweet. (Both pictures reposted from Janice Ferguson’s blog.)
I can only dream of Minnesota looking like this in March. Good for you, Janice, on skipping out on sewing for a while!
