With a new season's arrival comes a fresh interest in capturing the subtlety and brilliance of nature's aesthetic shift. My camera is ready for an inspired workout. . . The storyboard for a new "nature" video is in the works, brainstorming on the sights to capture through my camera lens and the soundtrack to accompany the visuals. So excited to create a little piece of springtime nostalgia in the coming weeks. . .

Painted Easter eggs make me smile. . . Such lovely, little holiday decor covered in pretty patterns and colors. . .
Something else that makes me smile just now. . . Spring's arrival! It never fails to come each year, but somehow this year it's felt like winter was never gonna back it's bags and journey away. The weather this weekend was picture perfect for the first spring holiday. Blue sky, warm breeze, buds forming on the trees, and nearly every patch of snow melted. . . Nature is waking up after a long hibernation. So happy and so blessed that springtime loveliness is here!
Has spring arrived in your neck-of-the-woods?

"Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again". . . Love this line from Mary Oliver's quaint poem, Wild Geese. Very soon the stunning visual of wild geese flying north in v-shaped formations will be a common occurrence, signaling that warm spring days are here to stay.
This wonder of nature is the inspiration behind my latest and newly completed quilting venture. . . A one-of-a-kind "flying geese" quilt, filled with the supple texture of handmade charm and the cheerful colors highlighted in our spring landscape. Unique and classic, eclectic yet simple, and oh so natural and soft, this Thistle creation is the inspired result of numerous hours of joy-filled creativity.
This "labor of love" is available for purchase here in Thistlehandmade via Etsy. . .
