Things to make

I'm sick to death of winter, so excuse me if I err on the side of too much flowery stuff in this list of tutorials.

I'm looking forward to seeing that "buttercup bag" after you've made it in your new fabrics!

You're site is always so colorful and inspiring, Jessica.....thanks! I love those butterfly straws and am yearning for Spring myself.

Ooooh, how fun! I'm in Phoenix, where there's been no shortage of spring (but summer is hot on our heels - no pun intended) and I don't think this is too spring-y at all! Thanks for all the fun stuff.

I always Delicious your tutorial lists. Love your work.

It was snowing here this morning! Thank you for the inspiration. I can make it spring like in my living room, even if the real deal isn't here yet.

I saw your blog for the first time yesterday and I loved it. It's an inspiration.
I'm from Portugal and here this week it seems like summer.
I'll look for news in your blog.
(Sorry my mistakes)

*raising hand in agreement* I am SO sick of winter, so seeing all those spring-y patterns made my day (as your blog often does).

I am really enjoying your site. I have recently started my own and find much inspiration in what you do. Plus, I am an "orange girl" myself.

Sara said...
