While we were up in Vermont, Rob and I visited the beautiful Nido, always a stop I look forward to when heading North. I scooped up some (ok, a lot) of that beautiful feather print from Anna Maria Horner's new line Field Study. The plan is to make some curtains for the loft with it, though because that window is so visible from our living room, I'm sometimes a little anxious about an overpowering color there. I think this will be really lovely however. I think it would also make a really beautiful whole cloth quilt. I also bought another print (the mustard colored one) from the same line and was surprised at the scale of the print, I was expecting it to be smaller... it is wonderful at that size and perfect for so many projects. I love it. I also bought two prints from Denyse Schmidt's Chicoppee, I just love that plaid. They all work beautifully together. I also snagged a bit of Ruby Star Spring those retro prints are really beautiful and the solids are perfect. I love that little bundle and am thinking of a patchwork project for them.
That's all from here. Today was my first day of school with students... it was trying and interesting. I bought this print on Etsy a few weeks back and I think it will be the perfect mentra for this year. "Work hard, be nice to people" was a reoccurring theme in my expectations covered today. Simple enough, no? I'm hoping for levity and flexibility in the next few days, and certainly looking forward to some sewing this weekend. Happy Tuesday everyone, work hard and be nice to people!
