colorful feathers


We had a nice cool, fallish weekend here.  So cool that I even had to get up and close the bedroom window in the wee hours of the night.

After an early morning soccer game, I spent a little time Saturday (okay, most of the day) in my craft studio painting feathers.  Once I got started it was hard to stop and it ended up being a series of four colorful feathers with different inspirational quotes and verses.  It felt so good to be in there, lost to the rest of the world.  I was trying to calculate how long it had been since I created something just for the sake of creating and I think it was nearly three months.  No wonder I've been wound so tightly.

Today is back to reality...a little laundry to finish and then putting the main bath back together.  It should be a quick project (she said optimistically) so I'm hoping to have a few pictures to share with you soon.

How was your weekend?

Happy Monday and enjoy the last official day of summer!

xo, Patty
