Indoor Blooms



Did you know that you can garden from the comfort of your couch? Or under soft lamplight cuddled up in bed with the window open? Well, you can. I did. Spring has come in so fast, and I ache at not having more time to spend welcoming my little bloomlings. Wait for me Spring! I'm not ready yet!



I've been busy propagating this big showy plumey bloomy though. Night after night, I've pieced, ironed, stitched and performed other clever tricks to make this....uhh....I don't know what it is yet. I know it started out as hey I wanna do something besides a circle, maybe a little flower. It's now about 18x18" and waiting for a home. The last time a project started out as hey I wanna do it ended up to be these.



I'll tell you what I do know, I'm feeling a little selfish. This may get introduced to the makings of a frock of sorts for moi. I've been thinking about it for days. I go to sleep thinking about it, and find myself spacing out during other tasks as I have a mental stumble across another thought for it. It's like a crush. I can't stop daydreaming about the possibilities. Perhaps a panel in a kicky skirt. I'll keep ya posted pals.

  1. I LOVE your daughters' jackets (I sent that pic to my best friend across the states already), so I can't wait to see what you make out of this!!! I love the combination of quilting and crewel... I wish you could sew curtains for me (that's what I'm doing right now... picking fabrics for our new home). I'm inspired by all the pattern and colors!

  3. I think half my projects start out with I think this might be fun lets try it and see where we end up. Usually not where I thought at the beginning but those are the best journeys.

  6. Very creative Anna Maria! :o)
    Love the embroidery around the edges...would love to do that stitch all thick like that.
    Your girls patchwork coats were very cute...I am dreaming up my own pattern for a shrug/kimono type over shirt for my littlest girls.
    I think you should make a lightweight spring coat for yourself and put your beauty piece on the back of it. :o)

  8. I get crushy on projects, too. Mostly it's an art project. This week it was a poem (see blog). You can get a lot planned in your head, so the actual project goes really fast!
