Shades of Yellow

Yellow is our theme around here this week. Love it! Bright and fresh. Cheerful and cozy. This scale is on display on my sideboard.  Tea for two?
I succeeded in making my first skirt. What I thought would only be an experiment with some extra fabric turned out to be a fun wardrobe piece. I grabbed a skirt from storage and made my own pattern. Maybe not perfect yet, but I am pleased as punch.
And here is a glimpse of our progress on the yard. We have been working hard this week weeding and making our garden beds. I am trying to figure out how to set up this area by the front door. I would like to paint the white brick a soft cream to match the trim on the windows.  The flower arrangement is a work in progress. Any suggestions? In the meantime, I love pulling up the driveway and seeing this inviting chair rather than a rickety old bench. One step at a time, right?


  1. Great job on the skirt. What a great color! :)

  2. Thanks Jodi! I wish you lived closer so I could learn from you! It's exciting to be able to make clothes on a dime.

  3. So this is what has been keeping you so busy my long lost friend : ) We need to catch up soon!
    Keep up the good work!

  4. Jess, you should enter your skirt into this contest.
