this time...

This time.. will be the right time... just a little more time... will be needed... I found some time today... I sewed the shoulder seams and knit the collar... Now,I need to make time to finish the sleeves... Because time is running out... almost time for vacation... And I took some time, to make some folds, to make some paper flowers... Michelle found the moment in time and showed it first, she has the links, if you have the time... And while I was folding... another flower was found... put away some time ago... forgotten,really... so glad I had the time today. "Take time to deliberate but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in." Andrew Jackson

Vacation! There's no time like vacation time :))) Such an enjoyable post ~ I love seeing the pretty paper flowers and I remember a time when I had time to press flowers.

Can't wait to see the little one in the special sweater!

knitting for someone you adore,

What a beautifully colour coordinated post:
The soft indulgence of knitting in natural colours for small people.
The soft aged tones of paper folded into delicate flowers
The crisp delicacy of dried flowers spread open and exposed within the pages of a book.

beautiful.

Hello there. I just came over from Bloom.
Those paper flowers are just beautiful. I picked up an old book at a yard sale yesterday.. Creating with Paper. It looks like a good one. I am wondering if your flowers are in there.
Love your knitting. Love your blog.

I really love those paper flowers. How beautiful! I press flowers from my garden every year...it's a way for me to remember what was in my flower pots and a way to preserve flowers I love.

the nest said...

ah, time, i tend to sense it out of reach, but when i occasionally latch on, boy, can i run with it! your words slowed the pace, thank you.

the photos + colors also slowed me down to pour over the detail and objects. both projects are beautiful and well worth the time you spent.

best - annri

Larissa said...

that sweater looks so soft! I spend lots of time with my kiddos folding paper airplanes - surely I must take the time to fold some flowers for myself. thank you for the lovely post.

I wanted to inform you that another blog is copying web sites/other blogs posts and claiming it as their own.
As an artist myself, it was quite upsetting that someone would copy someones work without giving them proper credit.
