Mother Nature certainly 'Purified' the beginning of February with blanketing most of the US and Canada with white. Our long country lane is starting to look like a tunnel. The time spent shoveling, tending snow machinery, and re-plenishing wood piles has taken some time away from sewing.

I had a lot of comments about the purple plate - wow. How the simplest item can draw inspiration - but that color was a POP.
This is my new square inspiration. This is the time we browse those seed and nursery catalogs that are pouring into our mail box (US). With all this snow I am dreaming of green and flowers. I want to have some raised beds this year. A mix of flowers and vegies. Hmm, squares of squares of color - lots of potential.
I suddenly remembered I had an 'odd' charm pack of florals - it must have been in one of the scrap bags donated to me. Not a full charm pack and they really don't match each other. But how simple to just piece those pre-cut squares into a top - like planting a raised bed garden.
What will be your inspiration? Turn to the simplest of forms - the square - and see what your creative side can grow.
