i painted a new sign today. just a quick little sign to catch the eye of passers-by. and all afternoon i sewed colorful little squares together, making a pile of baby quilt tops and 1 big top. on the porch with the dappled light of my shade trees surrounding me. i sewed until the sky was gray and the sun was slipping away. hours and hours of sewing and the beauty of the colors and patterns and juxtaposition of both kept me happy and energized all day. and when i headed back home, the lightning bugs were like flashlights. huge and exaggerated.


  1. Nice! I've become a big believer in the power of signs and your is pretty and cottagy.

  2. I love your sign. It's very eye catching! One of my favorite ways to picture you is sewing on the porch. The thought of that always makes me happy.

  3. Thank you for stopping by on my blog today. I had to laugh when I saw the word 'doomsdayers' ;-)

    To me it seems that your garden is quite beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend ;-)

  4. What discipline you have, sitting all day and sewing squares together for quilt tops! I do admire your persistence and wish I had the energy to do something like that!

    Your sign is adorable!

    Hope your weekend is wonderful! :)

    1. thanks kris......i'm afraid that tom would call it obsessiveness!!!
