~ Blooming ~


"A little madness in the Spring
is wholesome even for the King"
~ Emily Dickinson

and that is how I'm feeling today on this bright & sunny Sunday morning ~ 

yes,
we all know it isn't Spring….yet.
but I don't think they do:

our sheep are coming around today like it was a fine day in May….



and our Daffodils' are sprouting!

after hanging the laundry out to dry in this sun,
I will be cutting some of our Forsythia & Redbud branches today…
maybe a few pink & white Dogwood too - to place in a vase on our mantel.

ushering in a little more spring ;)




my needlework is also helping Spring along these days ~
I'm working on my offerings for tomorrow's February 1st update on





tiny leaves & sprouts of silk, cotton & wool




… on humble ticking and other calico cloth ~




colors of nature and imagination bleed from my needle
while I paint with fibers….




fanciful fripperies and simple stitches make for a
Happy Heart




Do what makes YOUR heart happy today my friends ~

Pretty stitches on ticking always makes me smile. 60 degrees at my house in OH but no sun...I'll take it. :-)

It's been unseasonably mild here in Nod the past several days as well, although sorely lacking in the sun department. No spring buds peeking through yet, as we still have a healthy cover of snow...and more on the way....then another plunge into the deep freeze. Love your fripperies! Sunday Blessings ~ Robin
