A Little Joy



Today was a joyful day. I started my next embroidery project on blue watercolored fabric(which I will share a photo of tomorrow), went car window shopping with the husband, started reading Eat, Pray, Love(thanks to Painter of Blue for if I had not seen the lecture of the author on her blog I would have never took the book out of the library), and while I was trying to organize my very messy studio I found a very unorganized clump of embroidery thread in the most beautiful spring colors. All the while I was listening to the beautiful new age relaxation cd Spring and Joy just overtook me.

Joy is embroidered in green outline stitching, with pink, blue, lavender and orange lazy daisies and french knots. All of my favorite stitches. The back of the Joy pillow is this lovely light green fabric. It was a spur of the moment collection of Joy. I enjoyed making it a lot and I sat down with no intention of doing it. Kismet.

I started the blue watercolored piece too but am only doing the outlining at the moment so a little monotony before my needles find freedom. I painted the top and bottom of my water colored fabric at two different times of the day so there is a noticeable difference between top and bottom but since it is blue and it is for a specific project I am going with the flow.

I am really enjoying the book Eat, Pray, Love. I would have never read the book had I not seen a lecture by the author on Painter of Blue's blog(see the link). She has a very humorous way of describing her broken heart and her journey. I think this will end up being a favorite and it is a much lighter look at the soul's journey then Dark Night of the Soul.

My hubby and I are still looking for a car we have it narrowed down to 3/4 cars. I favor the Nissan Versa, the Fit and the Yaris Hatchback. Hubby favors the Civic. I think I favor hatchbacks because my favorite car of all time was a baby blue Volkswagon hatchback with the gas cap in the front. The car always smelled like gas but you could get very far on $5.00 worth of gas and their was a gorgeous gas station attendent that made my visits to the gas station a treat. I loved to tool around in my little car with the windows wide open in the spring with the heat on. Alas the car caught fire on the NJ turnpike and that was the end of my fabulous car.

My studio is still messy but maybe, just maybe I will be inspired by the madness tomorrow. Keep stitching.

Love Joy, very Springy. Funny, I just mentioned trying to lose weight in a blog reply and you are reading a book with "eat" in the title, I will have to look that one up!
