Garden Inspired



Spring is such a nice time, although not lasting too long here in AZ.  I actually had to give in and turn the Air on last night for a few minutes to cool my place off a bit.  There is a short window of time where there are a lot of flowers blooming everywhere.  Unfortunately they dont make it much past June, but we enjoy them while we can. This last weekend was my daughters birthday and Easter, so we had lots of celebrating and having fun.  I made April this purse for her birthday.  She has been wanting me to make her one for a very long time.  It took longer than I planned, but doesnt it always. lol  But the important thing is she really likes it.  I think it looks better in person, not too happy with the photos.  Since I am now working full time plus some, I havent had too much time to create anything.  But tax season is about over and I look forward to my free time to get back into sewing.  My friends and I took a night out for some stress relief to paint ceramics at our local As You Wish Studio and I wanted to paint some flowers to remember the pretty ones I have in my containers for now.  Have a great week and take time to enjoy the flowers!!!
