A Blissful Summer Weekend

My weekend started with this basket of supplies on Friday night.
I had vintage and antique books to unwrap and supplies to put away.
I like to start with a clean work space.
I woke up Saturday and started in, coffee in hand.
I created bundles for inspiration.
I even pulled out the saved laces from France.
Then I started sewing fabric image rolls.
These never last long in my shop.
I found trims from France that I meant to sell a long time ago..
I ran downstairs to dye more crocheted pieces.
I love how there was a soft breeze to dry them in the sun.
It's been a busy summer and we have had lots of plans, 
friends from out of town, pool busy and loving it.
Somehow, squeezing in time to create seems more special.
I am painting, sewing and creating jewelry from the minute I wake up.
I hope you've enjoyed my newest creations.
I know some of you already own a few of these.
Enjoy these last months of summer
as fall (my favorite season) is right around the corner.
