Hello, this is my new Spring fern. It lives on my mantle and I have taken an oath to be sure that it gets the proper amount of water and light so that it will live to a ripe old age of at least 4 months.
I found it yesterday when Joan and I were out celebrating the arrival of spring. We also saw some amazing inspiration for a new stitching project at the same place (J'adore in Brookside). Get a load of this....
Is that not the coolest pillow you have ever seen in your life? Joan and I looked at it, looked at each other, and said... we can MAKE that! I took a couple of pictures for reference and we are now on the hunt for the perfect fabric to embellish with a zillion french knots.
This is what happens when you go out to celebrate spring with your friend who has just as much zeal for a DIY project as you do. Luckily for me, her enthusiasm is coupled with the skill and drive to make it happen. On our next fun day together we are going to stitch at her house.
I have my DMC floss and needles all packed up and ready to go. I can't wait to get started. My excitement has nothing to do with the fact that Joan also said she would made a strawberry rhubarb pie for us to eat. All of my excitement is focused on the stitching, but I am planning to bring some vanilla ice cream along with the rest of my supplies.
