Twisted Tuesday--Confidence

There are several things I feel confident about today:

~~that I can finish this  5 x 5 sampler this week while inspired by yellow flowers and rain this past weekend. Spring's Promise, designed by Feathers in the Nest, stitching by moi

~~that Abbie is confident even on bad hair days

~~that she has learned how to go up AND down the stairs at her leisure

~~that she has at one point in time, gotten my yoga mat upstairs confused with her potty mat--Who me? I'm too sweet to make tootsie rolls.

~~and that she doesn't want to discuss it anymore either.

~~that I love Crescent Color cottons and silks, making the flowers dance on linen
~~that Vintage Cream linen is going to be a staple at the homestead.

~~that we all will bloom best when surrounded by nourishing elements.

~~that Saturday's bud is Tuesday's bloom with confidence

~~that the daffodils every year will be housed for a short time in this green frog

~~and that a hot, soothing drink of either tea or coffee starts every day right.
