i love the days when i work in quiet. today i started out with the doors open and the music cranked. but when sheila came by with a coffee and an english muffin for a mid-morning visit, i turned off the music, enjoyed her visit and then worked in silence the rest of the day. words and ideas, thoughts and memories kept my mind busy all day as i built 2 baby quilts. there was the sound of the lawnmower, as tom cut the grass for the first time this season. and the fresh spicy scent of cut grass, weaving through the air and around the garden full of tulips and daffodils and forget-me-nots kept me company. it was a comforting and busy day.


  1. I love the way you describe your days dear Annette!
    I am wishing you a lovely month of May : )

    the sun is shinning today. It is even a bit warm. I am going out!

  2. That sounds just my kind of day Annette,
    I can imagine the baby quilts look beautiful.

    Here the weather has taken a turn, and its wet and cold. cant wait for mr. sun to appear.
    Happy sewing.

  3. sounds like a good day :)and I love your flowers. that one big fat yellow tulip - so much character!!

  4. I am working in silence more often these days, and enjoying the extra space for my mind to ramble. Your posts are always so sensual--I can smell the cut grass and coffee, see the daffodils and baby quilts.

  5. I would much rather work in silence. It seems my mind drifts on different topics as I go along. The flowers are so pretty colorful! Don't you just love the spring of the year!
