Things that inspire me (that I want to shamelessly copy)
In the past week I have seen a few things that have got my creative juices flowing.
I just need time to sit down and execute! (hah!)
So, first of all, the MiniBoden spring catalog came.
I have never actually purchased anything from them (sadly)
but I love to flip through it for ideas. So fresh and cute!
These are a couple of tops that look feasible to me for my girls.
I’m going to give them a whirl. Maybe using vintage sheets!
Second, have you seen Katy’s amazing Dresden quilt using Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley?
Oh my. I think it is lovely. With those circles!
And I love how it looks on the black. Smashing.
And so I borrowed my mom’s Dresden Plate ruler Sunday night while we were there for dinner.
I’m thinking a pillow for now. Something that looks kind of Cath Kidston.
And speaking of vintage sheets, check out Amanda’s wonderful room.
We had a little vintage swappy-poo a couple of months ago. I love what she’s done!
I’ve wanted to do some thing like this ever since seeing the Purl’s Liberty prints framed the same way, even collecting hoops when I’d go thrifting, but I’ve been paralyzed trying to decide what fabric to use. Seeing Amanda’s hoops was an “Ah-ha” moment.
And so I’ve started that project too. I promise to share when finished.
And speaking of spring, today my 5-year-old asked me: “Mom, is it Hedgehog Day?”
Me: “Uh, no, it’s Groundhog Day.”
5-year-old: “What is Groundhog Day?”
3-year-old brother pipes up: “It’s when the gwound-hog sticks his head up to see his shadow. And if he sees it, he gets scared and goes back inside. And if he doesn’t see it he goes outside to play with his friends!”
