Oops It's Wednesday!

Design Project
Here I thought I was being so efficient, adding gallery pages and such to and commenting on Shelly's Design Studio Facebook page and Natural Built Home Before and After photo contest, I didn't realize, it is Vibrant Threads Post Day!

Well, there you have it, that is what I have been up to. I have some serious housecleaning to do for tomorrow, or I will have to set plates for the dust bunnies to dine with us! (The Ladies who Lunch are coming for the day, a great way to spend my Birthday!) Yesterday wasn't very productive in the area of housecleaning either, I talked with my mom for almost FOUR hours! Apparently, we had a great deal to catch up on.

After the conversation, I would just like to declare to the world, I have the best mom and dad! I love them both so much and am so thankful that they are still here to chat with.

It was so refreshing yesterday, because mom didn't do the mom thing and try and fix anything, she listened like a friend and offered her empathy with the situations that are going on. Yes, there are some struggles, but then who doesn't have them. They are for private discussions however, and there is no place for them on the Internet for me.

Lately I am starting to think of spring coats. I am in desperate need of one, so I will start gathering inspirations. I have a variety of spring green fabrics, that I think in combination would be a great spring coat. I just have to decide on a style.. must get to housecleaning.... have a great day and don't forget to check out the contest and vote! Thank you in advance for your support.


  1. Shelly!
    This morning I was also thinking about a spring green coat--in a winter weight, for those chilly days in March when winter colors feel tiresome and out of place.
    Will you pull something out of your stash for this project?

  2. Yes, I have at least 3 different fabrics that are compatible Spring Greens. One a brushed denim, another a twill, and yet another jacquard with yellow green and deeper yellow floral woven into it. I really need to start sorting my patterns next. Nothing is yet getting sewn, but I feel a mental clearing. Inventorying everything helps to not feel overwhelmed.


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment, critique or a question. I love questions... Come back soon.
