Finally Friday!

I aim to have an entire bouquet
in just a few days. 

 Natalie Chanin's Mums made from cotton-jersey
are the speedy solution to my need for pretty. 
Romantic. Soft. Sweet.
Clear instructions and beautiful photographs are in her book, 
"Alabama Stitch Book." 
You might remember this skirt, and then there's another 
I'll show soon, plus the pile of cotton jersey waiting to be cut,
so clearly I'm a Natalie Chanin fan. Why?
(Turn up your volume) and have a listen, 
from Natalie Chanin herself, 
then pour a fresh cup of coffee and sit down with her 
online journal. Be prepared to really be inspired.

And, if you make some flowers this weekend, show me! 
I'd love to be inspired by what you're making.


  1. Your color choice reminds of the hydrangea's on Cape Cod!

  2. I thought it looked like a pretty hydrangea, too! Makes me even more ready for summer...

  3. I agree with both of you - especially since the few hydrangeas that bloom at our house are blue. When I make more in other colors, you can tell me if they still look more like hydrangeas. : )
