Oh bother. Isn't that what Pooh used to say when he was upset? Like when he couldn't find his honey jar or something serious like that? I know usually we post pics of our victories but today I am posting a defeat pic. I was working on my pinkeep swap creation and blew out the stitches in the old quilt piece I was using and then had to tear the base off my pedastal because the paint job didn't take like I wanted....oh bother. I'm going down a different road now with the pinkeep - only a week left to get it to my swap partner - and I think it will be okay. Because I'm not afraid, Eminem.
Driving into town this morning, the sky was real dark, but it hasn't started raining yet. This is the kind of overcast I don't mind...when the sky is so dark that all of the spring colors POP against it and the birds are singing so hard for the rain like they are trying to coax it out of those dark clouds. Here is a picture of the sky I see out of the back door of my work:
I love the twiggy sillouette of the trees against the dusty teal of the sky.
I wish everyone a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. If you are not a mom, or if your mom has passed, or if your kids are gone, I hope you can celebrate everything you are as a woman because you are still very very special.
