Spoiler Alert!

If you're in the Art Walk Sock Club then you might want to click on by today...because I simply cannot wait any longer to show you this month's yarn...

It's inspiration was THIS painting - Zen Peonies. I adored the pinks, burgundies, and the browns and beiges...I saw the sage green and thought, well? I wonder if Roxie will add green to the mix (and thought I'd like it better without, but you all know how I feel about greens, yellows, and oranges, right?). Well the yarn came the first of the week...and there was green. I took a deep breath. Ok. it's gorgeous. I wish there weren't green, but it's gorgeous...

And then I tossed it down on the table (next to my favorite purse for this time of year into the fall) and what do you see?

Oddly enough? It's an absolutely perfect match.

Serendipity - Roxie, you've done it again!

The yarn and bag go well together! That colorway is beautiful. Roxanne always does a beautiful job.

I wish I could find a couple more yards of this fabric, Sandra - it's just such a great print! Sadly out-of-print now, it's one by Alexander Henry (who can be decidedly weird with his art, but in this case and a some others, has strokes of genius!

There are, however, a few neat garden prints around let me know if you're interested!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
