elbow patches

I found this guy in my studio this morning ironing elbow patches onto his sweaters. I'm awfully glad I'm married to someone who knows how to patch his own sweaters! It means he's thrifty too, which is also a plus.

It's bright and sunny today and I'm feeling uplifted.
I'm totally inspired by the colors Camilla Engman and Sandra Juto are using in their work. Aren't these lovely?

He's a keeper..! How awesome - but I'm not surprised. You are one awesome person, too, so it makes perfect sense.

And yes - about the colors. I love Juto's ones especially - that sort of in-between-colors quality about them always speaks to me.

Enjoy the sunshine, dear..!

I am so in love with what Sandra is using and working on right now. I check in on her often lately, just to catch a glimpse of those stripes and colors as well. so, so pretty.
Good job with the guy Jill - that's pretty fantastic! Mine went to work today in a shirt he pulled out of our TO-BE ironed pile :)

nice to hear your comments folks! i've never really posted photos of my husband on my blog, so this felt a little strange, but when i caught him in my studio ironing and patching i had to whip out my camera! it was just a cute moment, one of those worth remembering.
