spring has come to oregon. it has been here for awhile. but you can still see a hint of winter in the early morning hours, and it is quite lovely. i love the quiet and stillness of winter. but i also LOVE the busy chatter of spring.
an early spring cold took hold of our family over the last week. so, there have been many quiet and restful activities coming out. my daughters have been working on their embroidery skills, and the oldest knows three different stitches now. they all know the running stitch, but now layla can back stitch and satin stitch. so fun. this little project was inspired by the montessori were my little girls go to school. they often make an embroidery pattern from a child's drawing. layla drew this flower with embroidery on her mind and it has been perfect.
that little swatch of brown paper with white flowers was the paper that inspired my desktop.
and holly... sweet holly... she finds her way into the yard every single day.
what a joy the little things can be.
