spring = bliss.

Although I originally had tons of sewing related plans this weekend, the absolutely gorgeous day called me outdoors! Who can stay inside on a day like this??

My yard will need mowing before the week's up, but the violets and other tiny wildflowers are so pretty!

And the bees are back! I went a couple of summers without seeing a single bee, and it makes me extremely happy to see them buzzing all over my yard! (And then I went back in the house for my flip-flops.)

Lu & Megs, cavorting with the bees:

Megs: "I can flyyyy!!!"

In the spirit of sewing, I did prewash all my new, spring linens and batistes. They looked so pretty fluttering in the wind, a mish-mash of orange, yellow, lavendar, aqua, mint...

Now I'm inside for a bit, and thinking about a tracing marathon! I think we're up to 4 or 5 in our Kyoto/Hotpatterns marathon!


  1. It was a beautiful day here too. We spent all day at a track meet.

  2. Lovely colors on the line :)

  3. Oooh, your fabrics flapping in the breeze are so pretty! I lounged on a deck chair this afternoon and hemmed a skirt and listened to the birds chirp.

  4. oooooo... preeeeetty.

    Hey, we have bees this spring too! I just suggested (ok, yelled) at Russ to not shoo them away from the dripping pipestand in the back. I mean... BEES. Real live BEES. YAY!

    And seriously? My word ver. is.... wait for it...

    "swarn" That is too bee-like, right? "LOOK OUT! It's a SWAARN of real live BEES!!"

  5. I love your yard! Your fabrics do look lovely fluttering on your line. We've had beautiful days here too but now we have a chance for rain all week.
    word ver: wornning!

  6. Beautiful Pictures!
