Ice Parfait on the farm
What a beautiful weekend to be home. We had a very rainy Saturday followed by a sparkling, sunshiny Sunday. That's the perfect combo for sewing, housekeeping and photographing those finishes.
Ta da - my Ice Parfait quilt top!
As you can see, I kept the long coral slash of color. I kept it for several reasons. It's unexpected, which felt good. Also it vaguely reflects how I feel about life these days. When the unexpected makes a big, unforgettable appearance in your life, that dramatic slash doesn't have to "ruin" things. It can, perhaps become part of your beautiful story? Perhaps. I am working to see that.
Also, you commented that the blocks on my design wall resemble a spring tree in bloom. Don't you see it? Yes, it does! I had already been considering keeping all that negative space, and that comment sealed the deal. I added Kona white, Kona oyster and Kona ice frappe (the pale mint) to fill out the quilt.
This is one of my favorite spots. Loving the way these squares converge!
The blackberry bushes are blooming and the grasses are growing high. All this green and growing is so delicious at this time of year!
Just the right weather for spinning on swings and...
welcoming goat babies! Between our two goats, we had one little doe and 3 bucklings! And they are so, so very sweet!
And so is this boy! Precious.
Here's wishing everyone a warm, glowing week!
