I now officially have a favorite flower. I never cease to be delighted by a tulip. I love the shiny sparkly petals, the tender scent, and I even love the way they sound when I rub them against each other as I'm easing them into a vase.
Midge and Gidget helped me pick a bouquet for Mom this weekend. Gidget just likes to watch and sunbathe, but Midge can't help but try to take a bite out of every tender bloom. My Mother delights in them even more with a tiny nibble taken out of them. She loves the girls almost as much as I do.
On a personal note, I had a first-timer come to the shop this week. Cassandra, I can't wait to work on your Mermaid of the Pearls. I enjoyed meeting you so much and you were so kind to me that I feel like I must be on my best game when finishing your piece. I intend to make you a lifer!
This week I finished off a couple of pieces from my procrastination pile. The Herb Gatherer and Wool Gatherer got an update. I don't even know why I was putting them off. They weren't particularly difficult, but I must have had some sort of creative mental block and I just couldn't make myself finish them. Sorry Kimberly. I truly hope you think they were worth the wait.
The next two pieces were labor intensive not only for me and my team, but for the quilter and weaver of each. Marilyn, It was a pleasure to work on such a well pieced quilt. I can't wait to see these on your wall.
I'm looking forward to another creative and productive week.
