we slept with the bedroom windows open last night. we still have the storms on downstairs, but thankfully we leave the screens on all winter in the bedroom...i like to be able to open them, and it's the cat's preferred entrance in the middle of the night. the night air was heavy and hot and moist. like august. in march. and tom got up at 4 am to close it because the birds were too loud for him. i've been hanging laundry on the line for days. quilts. sheets. tea towels. skirts. it's been phenomenal and odd and very lovely. it's giving me a sneak peak at summer and i'm ready! tom is busy with the yard clean-up. and he's loving his basketball and beer after work. i'm ready to start sewing on the back porch at the studio. i've straightened up the chaotic sewing room so i'm not drowning in fabric scraps. it's been a cleansing few days. and on sunday march 25th, we're having our next sale at the studio. come by and pick up some items to add some springlike colour to your home. 55 mowat ave in portsmouth village, from 10 until 4.
i feel like quilts are alive. they reflect all the little joys that make life special. they emanate love and warmth. the quilts i make blend a grandmother's ideals with a fresh youthful flair. there is a nostalgia for seasons past combined with hopefulness for a bright full future. you can find me online at www.chasinglightningbugs.com
