After many days with low temperatures and a lot of rain, the sun again blessed us.
Before the sun broke through the wind calmed, so I brought a quilt and a book outdoors to enjoy a breath of fresh air.
Later, when the sun broke through I also brought my cup of tea, a couple of jelly ladies and the latest crazy quilt Round Robin I am working on - due July 3.
6 years a ago I got lovely hand dyed silk thread for my birthday. It is perfect for this work,and looks very good on the white silk I am decorating.
I am working on the swirl you see in front, and my plan is to cover the white with swirls and pearls.
Sitting in the sun I also closed my eyes for a minute, smelling the air, enjoying the birds singing.
A lovely scent came with the mild breeze, and suddenly I was 30 years younger, smelling my luxury soap bar, jasmine scented.
The mind is a strange thing, archiving memories like this - the pink soap bar I saved for special occasions, for dressing up, for young love and young fun.
Now I think I will find my box with purple fabrics and cut some pieces for a double 4-patch quilt.
I have recently bought some lovely CW repros on eBay, and I need to make room for them.
My DD1 can also use a new quilt :-)
