1. New plants
I can't help but admire the gorgeous colours of the waterlily flowers in the top photo. I snapped this photo at The Collector's Plant Fair, a wonderful show where over 70 specialist nurseries gathered to sell their plants. I purchased only a few specimens but could definitely have brought many more!
2. Seeing my writing online
Did you miss my Quilters Companion article about Sue Reid's quilt studio? You can now read it online for free! I love seeing how other quilters arrange their creative spaces and how they make their work.
3. Hand stitching
I had an opportunity over the Easter long weekend to make progress with the applique on my BOM. Oh, how I am enjoying hand stitching these colourful blooms! Here's the pile of circles prepared for applique. Slowly sewing is so meditative.
Do you have things that make you happy this week? Snippets of joy are all around us; we just have to look out for them.
