in search of sun...

as mentioned yesterday, this summer has been a bit grey, wet and gloomy of late. today i decided to find my own sunshine:

finding my own sunshine

in my new aidez cardigan that is moving along quickly in squishy soft cascade eco+ wool.

finding my own sunshine

in a gorgeous crocheted stone from a very talented friend of mine.

finding my own sunshine

in a new stripey pillow for the couch i abruptly decided to make today (featuring saturated yellow linen from yorktown road and pretty birds from bookhou).

found some sun!

and would you look at that! when i ventured out for a beach walk this afternoon i even managed to find a bit of the real thing, poking through a ceiling of grey clouds. the yellow flowers along the shore certainly helped too. and now as i'm typing i'm peering out the window, and spotting a golden pink sky through the trees. i wish we had a better view of the sunset, but it makes me smile all the same.

hope you all had a happy weekend and managed to find your own sunshine, whether it was the real thing or found bits of gold.

The sun you found is beautiful. Certainly brightened my day.

It's like the sun you found performed a little "sun dance," beckoning the actual sun to visit. Love the cardigan.
