Here's the view from one of our front windows. This was taken a few days ago when the sky had started to brighten a bit from what it is now. Today we've got those same low dark clouds.
Here's my "view" inside today.
I'm starting a new jacket with colors to brighten the day. This is going to be another of my peek-a-boo jackets. The bright blue linen is the outside; the batik stripes will be the lining, collar and cuffs. I have cut triangular holes in the blue to allow the wild lining to show through. (You can see my sample piece on the left here.) I found a great nubby yarn in the right colors that I will add on the surface to bring in more texture and line (and help to hold down the facings of the triangles). When I work on something so colorful and whimsical, I feel like I'm just playing not working.
It's a happy contrast to the one I just finished--Drama in Black & White.
