I never get tired of spring in my little corner of the world. The colors just keep coming. We have a fair number of very old lilac trees here, which bloom in several colors: light purple, or lilac,
dark violet and white! Aren't these two beautiful side by side?
You don't pay much attention as you walk down the driveway toward these, but when the perfume from the trees wafts toward you, this is what's overhead.
The little Japanese Cherry Tree is still blooming outside my breakfast room window. On Saturday morning, I took a picture of my first attempt at the Daisy Lace dress that Gaylen and I are trying to replicate.
This is a stretch lace, made more to see if I had the lines right. I didn't even put a zipper in it. I started to cut out one from eyelet, to see how it would work in a non-stretch fabric, but then it was sunny and 75, so I quit and made this cute little summer number instead.
It's from the same eyelet I plan to use for the second test of the Daisy Lace dress. You see, I'm kind of an idiot. I found a piece of this eyelet which was 14.5 yards long for only $30, and had to have it. So there are probably a couple more summer dresses in the 9 yards left, and extra fabric to be returned to the shelf.
Last, but not least, Thor wanted me to be sure to wish a very happy 5th birthday to fellow mastiff, Mango, of the great state of Master Chew Sits. Hope your Momma is good to you, dude!
