because i'm too lazy to take pretty pictures myself these days, here are a sample of some of my favourite pics from flickr. as you can see from the top three, i've got quilts on my mind lately. it's killing me that most of my fabric is packed away (i did keep a box of my tweed and wool fabrics handy for any winter sewing that i may need to do in the next few months) because i'm really feeling the urge to start cutting out squares for a simple, full sized quilt - bright blocks of colour with white. someday. someday soon... instead my creative energy has been directed towards the garden for the past few weeks - deciding which branches and which whole trees need to go (don't worry, it's a huge, dead tree), pruning my rose bushes, pulling weed after weed. the day after we moved in, i planted some gorgeous cream sweet pea seeds in this fabulous sixties planter that was left in our backyard and they're just starting to break the soil now. i can't wait until they start to climb, i'll post photos when they look especially lovely. i've also been knitting but, as i am possibly the worst knitter in the world, have nothing to show after pulling apart my lovely cream alpaca Purl Beret for the THIRD TIME after i noticed a dropped stitch, like 10 rows down from where i was diligently knitting. damnit. and yet, i think i'm going to give it a fourth go as i need something to keep my little hands busy in the evening.

  3. I love when someone does the trawling for me - such great inspiration on flickr, but I can't even keep up to date with my bloglines. Always torn between doing more crafting, more reading, more photos etc. etc. Then I catch up on posts like yours and get tired and wonder how you manage to do it all. thanks for the inspiration.
