My View


All day yesterday was spent on the computer setting up my blog. Today I need to hit the sewing machine. A few posts back Sew Cindy showed the spectacular desert view she has from her sewing room window. It started me thinking about what all of us see as we create and how maybe it influences how we do it. Outside my window it's winter white for many months in a row with only the birds at the feeder for brief shots of colour. I wonder if where we live and what we see effects our colour choices. I know at this time of year bright cheerful spring florals are calling out to me.

How about you?

What a spectacular view, Diane. Just beautiful.

If you sneak by my blog sometime, you'll see I posted your new blog link.

You became a dear cyber friend even before your blog was created and I consider you a blessing.

Welcome Diane - add me to your list of quilters who share the same snowy view! Here in Northern Wisconsin it will be late March-early April before we see lovely green grass like your mailbox image in your header. And yes, the snow makes me yearn for spring and flowers...just received some wonderful yardage from Canada - Canadian Cottage...full of light & roses...Spring can't come quickly enough!

Hi Diane! It's even MORE winter-white outside my window as of this morning..and it really did smell like Spring early in the week! Your mailbox gives me hope that I might see Spring eventually! LOL Welcome to blogland ;)

Hi Diane, Welcome to blogland! I too have recently started blogging and I am really enjoying it, making lots of new friends.

What a beautiful view you have outside your window! I'm from Australia and we are at the tail end of summer here, so all I see is brown grass and wilted flowers but we do have a big blue sky.
