I hate to sound like I’m gloating to those of you in still-cold climates, but the weather continues to be absolutely gorgeous here. I’m working on a couple new print collections, but decided I needed an inspiration-break yesterday, and went for a walk up to the ridge near our house. It’s incredible to see how much the landscape here changes here after a couple months of rain. What was a dry, golden hill last fall is this lush, green and blossoming pasture full, as I mentioned before, of cows. I’m not sure exactly how these images will filter themselves into my collections (would you guys buy cow-print fabrics?), but the walk cleared my head and left me feeling very happy to be here.
