It’s spring break for my kids this week. This morning was a nice leisurely start. No rushing around. I took my time drinking my coffee and decided to read a blog. The Attic24 blog to be exact. Lucy from Attic24 had shared on Instagram recently her new yearly crochet blanket design. It’s just gorgeous. I believe it’s called Dune. I had thought today was the day that she was sharing it (for free btw) so I popped into her space. It is actually being released tomorrow but I decided to look through her links of blogs she loves.
It was refreshing. Part of my hesitancy in starting to blog again was that maybe blogs were over but nearly all of the blogs she recommends are alive and active. I found myself going down the blog path, happily I will add, to see creatives of all kinds sharing their life and what they are making. It was so nice and felt a bit like the old days. Of course many of these bloggers have been blogging this whole time. There all along.
This post on the Cozy Things blog not only made me want to try hand piecing a quilt but also led me to this site and book. I was so happy to find it. It talks about all things joy. I read the first chapter of the book, Joyful, and immediately requested the book from the library. There are many wonderful articles on the site too. I think you will like it too.
One of the blogs linked to A Year with My Camera which is a free class that starts 4 times a year. Having recently received a new camera I decided why not? It doesn’t start up again until July 4. I’m looking forward to starting.
The painting above was done probably a year ago but was what I was in the mood for today. Soothing colors. It’s very grey and rainy here today. And now I want to do some landscapes. :)
I’m thinking of adding a page of inspiration to my site which will include blogs, books, art and craft supplies too. I love learning of good things so I’m happy to share when I find something I love.
