mind's a-whirr again
this cloth came in the other day and it was love at first sight
words and hands, fountain pens and postmarks
and my brain started buzzing - thoughts and ideas tumbling one after another but none forming to completion
ideas of random creations, in various stages
and then one started to take more shape
so far I've cut strips of fabric 1/4" wide and started tying little knots, cutting them apart with pinking shears
palest pink tinged with gold and cream
aqua with hits of the palest green and grey
a beautiful Christmas toile that is pure inspiration
like an ink sketch with palest sepia and washes of light pink
a post card image from the Graphics Fairy and a picture copied from a book about the history of Paris
all of these and more are coming together, both in my mind
I have an idea for the invitations for this year's Sale...yes, yes, it's early, but when ideas come, you just have to run with them....
come Sunday I'll be up to my elbows in paint and glue!
