WN08 Bi-Plane Arrival

The main focus of this blog is Fiber Arts, but on occasion I like to add fun thing that are off topic.
nice_planeLike the arrival of this beautiful Bi-plane this morning.  I heard them fly over.  The prop pitch changed, so we knew they were coming in for a landing.  Any arrivals on our grass strip bring out all the neighbors.  Mike and Jack are the greeting committee today.

Normally we see a single, high wing and tail draggier type plane come in.  This bi-plane (two wings, upper and lower) is a ten year old experimental bi-plane.  What a beauty she is!

“Do not look back and ask why, look forward and ask, why not?”

This is my new favorite quote.  I found it on the back of Dove Sugar Free Chocolate wrapper.   I do not want to dwell or live in the past, because there is just so much to look forward to in the future.  I won’t know if I can fly until I jump off the roof.  I like to think that my glass is always half full.  On that note I leave you with the quote below:

“Slow Down, take notice, savor the moment”

Light Lavender in Feathers Design

light_lavender_feathersOur newest Featured Fabric in our latest design, Light Lavender in the Feathers Design.  I tend to gravitate to deep bold colors.  Much of North America has been battling heat and drought, the Pacific Northwest had been rather gray.  I felt like I needed to lighten up a little, Light Lavender just feels fresh and light & airy.  And I am completely smitten with the Feathers Design.
