Green and orange days

It's finally spring in Minnesota. You wouldn't know it just by looking around, things are still pretty brown. But the air! It smells so good! Like green things, like growing things, like dirt and wood chips and water.

Just the thought of stepping outside makes me feel like sewing in green.

And the sunshine makes me want to sew some orange.

Or how about both green AND orange!

Don't get your hopes up for any green and orange project updates anytime soon though. Tonight Laura is coming over and we're working on table runners for her wedding. Plum and magenta. Not bad, just not orange and green.

We'll also be going to our favorite fancy pizza place, Punch Neapolitan Pizza. The name says it all: authentic Neapolitan pizza cooked in a real wood fire oven. It's exactly like the pizza we had in Italy last summer.

And, if all works out as planned, Ian and I are going someplace really fun tomorrow and the best part is: I'm taking all of you with me! Well, taking you with me in the way that I'm bringing my camera and I'll post about it on Monday. But it'll feel like you're there, I promise.

Anyway, that's it for now. Goodbye until Monday, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I want to sew in green too - my head has been filled with visions of a log cabin in white and green. :)

  2. Oh my, that would be so beautiful! And so fresh and crisp! I think you should make some blocks, you know, just to try out your idea. ;)

  3. All those yummy oranges and greens! I'd forgotten how lovely they can be together. Sometimes you get stuck in a colour rut and just go with what you like or what you have. But now I am inspired to expand my colour palette:-)

  4. I know, aren't they great? My color love changes so quickly that by the time I start a project (a quilt usually) featuring my fav. colors, I'm already on to new colors before I can even get the top sewn. It's frustrating.

    I want to see what you come up with for your newly expanded color palette. :)
