After days and days of dark clouds and then...nothing, I'm very happy to report that today we are finally getting some rain, which is much needed around here. And it brought some cool with it, hallelujah!

These seriously wonderful smelling mountain laurels seem to suddenly be in bloom everywhere (including my own front yard, to my surprise).

Another anticipated arrival today was that of my two new sewing books! These came to me on high recommendation from a very inspiring lady. I am so excited to get to work with the help of these books. I've had fabric piling up for years and I'm hoping this is just what I need to really get started making clothing.

I am sew excited. Har har. It is funny how the craft world is so full of word play.

  1. Hello Alexandra,
    found your blog by just clicking next blog and liked it instantly. Your food looks delicious and I will try the crumble recipe this weekend.
    You are happy about rain? Living in a very cold spot in the center of Germany we were really happy to have some sunshine yesterday and temperatures to finally go out into the garden without being dressed like an eskimo. I am looking forward to see more of your paper cuts. Good luck for your blog
