After the Rain

After all the rain, my favorite Clemantis is in full bloom.  I wish I could share the name with you but it has slipped my mind.  My son moved his stuff home from college this weekend and my mind has been on overload ever since.  The house looks like a bomb went off and the washing machine has been running so much that when it's not on, I notice.  It's so good to see him that I don't care about any of it.

I spent Sunday afternoon working on a project that I will share with you later in the week.  Here is a little sneak preview.  It's a special project for a special person but I can't give it away quite yet.

These arrived a couple of days ago.  Oh so pretty and creative.  I don't know why I do this to myself because I just can't start any new projects right now but I'll have them when I get some time (get some time...). 

This very beautiful pile of fabric sits beckoning me, but I won't be tempted.  It will be worth the wait.  Hope you had a good weekend!



  1. I have wondered if I can grow clematis where I live.
    I am afraid it might be too hot.
    Your post was lovely-
