Summer Flowers

My adopted grandmother, BettyGram gave me a bundle of vintage flour sack fabrics several years ago. They are ending up in a quilt, a wanna-be vintage quilt. This time, it's all about the azure sky, sunshine and summer flowers.

Color Inspiration Galore

This blog is amazing. Tweak your favorite color and select "Go get it" to be shown a selection of color palettes based on that color. Fantastic! I'm going to be using this for years to come.

Murphy's Kitchen Shop - Stillwater Trip

Fiestaware in a rainbow of colors.

Howabout an English teapot in your favorite color?

These remind me of the famous English crockery, Cornishware

Quilts from Stillwater Trip

The subtle colors of these unfinished quilt tops are similar to the color combinations that have been brewing in my own imagination recently. I like the designs as they are simple but have impact.

New on the Nightstand

Frances Mayes is known for Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany. I'm excited to read her book on discovering poetry. English Pleasure Gardens was written 100 years ago and has been recently republished with all the same fantastic line drawings by the author. Writing Tools introduces useful knowledge every writer should know. 

Added to those three are two others: a book on Benjamin Franklin and a collection of Twentieth Century American poetry. It's difficult to put any of these books down.
