Feeling Inspired!

Portland is in full bloom right now and let me tell you, it's a lovely sight.

Really, I almost stopped at a house with the most gorgeous red poppies I have ever seen just so I could find out where they came from.

And you should see my neighbor's pale pink peonies! Simply beautiful.

And then there is the absolutely perfect yellow rose in our front yard. The poor bush needs a little more care than it has been getting {ahem} but despite the neglect it is producing the most luscious yellow blooms on our street.

So, why all the ramblings about flowers, you might ask. Well, I don't know about you, but I am remarkably influenced by color. Indeed. I've been known (on countless occasions, in fact) to choose yarn for a project based entirely on color (with utter disregard for other important qualities, like weight). Yep. And I've been trolling fabric shops for years looking for that perfect yellow that my darling rose bush produces with such ease.

And right now I walk around the city and think up projects based on the color of flowers! You'd think I'd take that happy flower appreciation and spend a little time with my garden, but instead my head is swirling with potential dresses for the girls in pale-peony-pink, new curtains for the family room in front-yard-rose-yellow, and a lightweight summer sweater in perfect-poppy-red. What can I say?

Don't get me wrong, I'm a happily dedicated gardener. Honestly. But oh how I love to make things!

Happy making things!
