Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.

in and out day



We're having an in and out day with the sun lighting everything up then going dark behind fast clouds. I'm tinkering with fabrics, design and stitching and trying to find my way to a number of creative destinations. Some days it's so simple, abundant, joyful. Other days it's like the sun disappearing. 

But sooner or later, the clouds shuttle on, the light seeps back. 



Outside, I can hear the red-winged blackbird trilling, a nostalgic soundtrack from my childhood in Missouri. He's having a very happy day. 

And hey, there's the sun. Again.

*BTW, there is a free app for Peterson Feeder Birds. We love it!

More birdie banners in the shop tomorrow.
