new beginnings…

Wet and cold here in the NE. What happened to the 85 degree weather???? Well, it does make for good growing weather I guess. I found these babies in the gardens this morning. Strawberries, grapes, blueberries, onions, spruce cones, ad the beloved peonies! newbeginningsBTI made a fun peppermint sachet today using my geek chic fabric.

baby apples and mini blooms up close

This year our apple trees are pretty sparce so it took a while to find some baby apples to photograph. I was going to take a pic of our strawberries but some little creature beat me to it. Have to wait another day for some more to ripen. I found these delightful tiny flowers out and about in the fields. They are so detailed and cute. Couldn’t resist taking a pic of the rose and the amazing peony.

upcycling Spring…

A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of visiting a local company called Taylor Made Custom Products. Innovators in the awning business since 1908, their current staff has been at it for over 33 years. The team there was hard at work sewing up awnings. I was very lucky to come away with some remnants to work with. There are not many scraps left as they tend to use up what they have. What a treat to see local production happening and then share in it myself:-) The elegant summer tote pictured above is my first project using these upcycled materials (a friend provided my with some amazing leather remnants). This tote is for sale on my Etsy Bale and Twine shop. The weather continues to make the outdoors bloom. Our blueberries and strawberries are coming. Spring marchs on…enjoy…
