inspired ideas...the spring issue


have you been over to amy's blog recently? the spring issue of her on line magazine inspired ideas just came out this week. so many lovely photos and projects in all my favorite spring colors. i am so ready for the snow to melt.....


isn't that tiny easter basket adorable? for someone like me that likes everything tiny i nearly quit breathing when i saw it. i have a little lovebirds tutorial the spring issue as well as some of my favorite photos. the cuff challenge amy sent out gave me the idea to make this pale blue blossom cuff. so easy when you start with a pre-made base, just cut the cuff off an old shirt. it already has the button closure and is so quick to make. you can enter the give-away to win my cuff on amy's blog.

i cut a piece from a vintage hanky that had a hand crocheted edge and gathered it into a rosette. then i sewed little millinery leaves, flowers, and stamens on top. it got me thinking about making wrist corsages again.



i also dug out my wool stash this week and put together this bundle of yummy spring wool pieces. i can't wait to start making some little wool birds.
i hope you find a little piece of spring to brighten your day. julie

Hi Julie so glad to find you had posted on your blog yesterday. The cuff is gorgeous and yes it just screams spring which can get here anytime.

I love all these yummy colors. It really makes me think of spring. I'm guessing you're not getting a snow thaw any time soon. It doesn't seem to be slowing you down, though, because you're making beautiful springtime art. Love the little birds.
