Not sure how things are feeling in your neck of the woods, but here on the east coast the weather has been one beautiful day after the next and all this light spring feeling has me wanting to get my hands dirty in the garden, messy in the studio or simply goof about and make something.
Not sure that I actually will—but found a bunch inspiration as I hunted through some of Christine’s bookmarked projects. (In fact—check out the last one I listed here which prompted a fabulous sewing project that she actually made for me as a birthday gift!)
But first up is a project that combines four of my favorite elements: inspirational words, typography and linen—all combined on a pillow! Please, what is not to love in this?

My niece Lauren is studying interior design and has been helping me create an office environment that is fun and functional. She has helped organize my work flow and we have talked about having a bit of wire strung to hold my images and cards that seem to build up in piles everywhere—I am thinking the two of us might make a pile of these pretty clothespins while watching one of her favorite movies (the girl is film-o-holic of filmoholics .. I tell ya’)
Anyone who has ever spent time with me knows only too well my predilection for stringing twinkle lights everywhere. When I was in London a few weeks back, we were in the Cath Kidston shop where I found some darling paper lanterns and brought them back for some variations on the twinkle light motif that I have kind of beaten into the ground. Had I known about the paper cube or dixie cup idea—I think I might’ve held out and done one of these projects instead. Who knows—with summer coming? I might do a few of these for the outside porch for a playful effect.

And now—the one you’ve waiting for: the pom pom cowl

and the one Christine made for me:
hmm, I’m thinking I know at least one thing that is getting packed for Italy . . .
If you have a project you’d love to share—I’d love to hear about it!
