A Lovely Week

What a wonderful week I've had! Not only did I get some lovely new felt but yesterday I was surprised to find that one of my items had been picked for the Etsy front page, it was one of the little pencil cases/pouches that I had made. Oh lucky me!I am still having heaps of fun with my new felt, I made this little sewing set for my Etsy shop. With so many colors of felt to chose from it takes me a while to decide which color to use for which project. Oh the decisions I have to make!I couldn't finish out the week without sharing this wonderful photo taken of our beautiful Mt. Rainier, my hubby took this a couple of days ago when we had a rare wonderful sunny day and the mountain "came out to play". I often think back to when I first came to live here in Washington State many, many years ago. I arrived in late October to rainy foggy weather and I never got to see this wonderful mountain for almost a month. People kept asking me "Have you seen the mountain yet?" After a while I really started to wonder if it really did exist! Then one day in November I saw her for the first time and I was amazed at how she could have stayed hidden from me for a whole month, she was spectacular and I have loved her ever since. I cannot begin to count how many times we have made the trip to get my "mountain air fix" as I like to call it, we usually go several times a year when we just want to get away from it all and it works every time.

Well that's all from me for this week, I hope you all have a great weekend!

What a lovely place that must be to live. I've never been to the Pacific Northwest but have heard many people speak of it's beauty. I'm sure a view like that must inspire you to be creative.
