The weeks just keep passing us by in our small home on the hill.
Hours turns to days, days turn into weeks and surely one would expect that things would slow down. Alas, it is not! It is this steady pace of days just going by, and to be honest sometimes for me it’s just a bit too fast. I still need to breathe. In an ode to contemplation, I’ve recently started meditation. Meditation is soothing, but complex. I find it hard to come to terms to not thinking of anything and letting go of things in my head that simply does not matter.
Also, I’ve been so blissfully happy to have gotten this bunch of flowers at my local grocery store. No fancy flower shops for me. Sometimes the little joys are what keeps us a float during a whirlwind day. Not only do they look amazingly happy these flowers, they also remind me that the days are lighter and that the nights are not as dark anymore. Spring is approaching slowly but surely into our gardens and our skies with the sweet chirping of birds and the lighter and brighter mornings. I have a spring in my step when I wake up in the mornings, and I face the day with the thought of longing for those warmer afternoons and cups of tea outside in our little patio even more as the days pass me by, longing of soft quiet mornings, the smell of cut freshly cut grass and lilacs in bloom. Spring is such a poetic season to me, as it is a season renewed with the romance of the flowers, blossoms and trees that bloom and grow.
Look at the waves of week 4 for my Last dance in the beach blanket. I’ve already created the batch of 4 squares. I do love how it looks, the waves being imagined in my mind. It’s so pretty this square. I do find I would have loved to make this in a blue color instead of grey, this shade makes these waves to look more dramatic.
My beautiful Springtime Starburst blanket is also on it’s way. And boy are the colors so marvelous together! I’ve made approximately 8-13 circles per color depending on what I think suits and looks okay with the inner circle. It’s quite challenging but still so fun. This is is also why choosing colors can be challenging, so I’ve made more of an effort this time around to really choose the colors that I know I would like.
Wishing you all a lovely Monday,
