Rhubarbs and sewing

I don't know why, but I've been very critical against my writing and my photos for the blog lately. I've done posts but decided not to publish them as I found them not interesting to none but myself. I haven't used my camera as much as I used to do before but I hope that I can change that now when the spring is knocking on the door here.

My oldest daughter has a work for school and that is to follow the the changes in the nature. She has studied the area around the house as the snow has vanished and plants like the rhubarb has developed. She has borrowed my camera so now I "borrow" her rhubarb photo, but I think that she allows me to do that.

We also have another project together (I love to share activities with my children). This new exciting project is to create her prom dress. Some parts with the sewing are too difficult for us so I'm grateful that my sister and her associate at their fabric shop can help us.

I love you eat it? In a cobbler or a pie?

I hope you will show the finished dress for the prom...the color and lace are so pretty!

The rhubarb is such a pretty color! Can't wait to see photos of the prom dress. Wish I had that kind of talent. I'm sure it will be beautiful!

your blog continues to be one of my favorites Ella. I love that you are sewing your daughter's prom dress - that would be such a rare thing here. Parents spend outrageous amounts of money on a dress that will be worn once and the dress is usually inappropriate for any other occasion. The dress you're sewing looks beautiful - could you photograph the finished dress? It's rhubarb season here too - mine is just about ready to harvest. Do you combine with strawberries for pie? That's one of my favorite ways to eat it.
Do not despair about posting on your blog - your muse is in hiding or taking a rest, it happens. It has happened to me for a very long time now and I feel as though I have nothing to share and I'm critical of my photographs. We must restore our vigor for photography and celebrate spring! Happy week to you Ella.
