Aaaaaahhhhhh summer! That time when sales slow, whimsical demands dwindle and time for me to whip up a little something for myself. My summer bag harbors stowaway projects worked as the sun rises and sets over the hotsy-totsy sands of the Gulf shore.
I have been busy making linen flags to hang from my patio. Using patterns from Robyn Pandolph Designs, I am replacing the called-for cotton fabric with my vintage cashmere wool. This dream fabric soaks up the summer dye palette of teal and pink perfect for shoreline living!
No backyard is complete without a summer banner! To compliment the linen flags I am making a double sided chipboard banner. The natural aging and buttery soft texture of 1886 paper on bright teal are pure lazy summer afternoons swung away in a shaded hammock!
As the school year winds to a close, longer hours can be spent tending my personal projects. I look forward to having my sisters-in-law in town next week for my daughter's high school graduation and know we will spend summer hours stitching, sipping Asti, and wishing such summer days could last a little longer.
LOVE & LAZY SUMMER DAYS!
