snippety bits and pieces


may is "snippets"

it's such a fun word, one i am happy to re-visit
the first time 'round it inspired a snippety bit heart

this time, i'm hoping for a whole quilt


this little scrap of a picture is getting me started


giving me a few ideas, things to try


 pulling fabric possibilities

and thread


why does he inspire me, i asked myself... 

the colour, the text, the branch for sure


but i also love this imagery - the little bird poised on the branch, holding on tight, safe in it's perch but ready to leap into the unknown

with pretty treasures on it's back

kind of like how i feel right now... 

karen is teaching alchemy again... my favourite class ever

i love how this class stretches you, helps you find your own way, all the while supporting and inspiring

it's a springboard that helps you land squarely in your own lovely pile of creativity


 i'm thinking i'll make a quilted wall-hanging, but i'm willing to see how the journey unfolds

 i've a pile of fabric and thread pulled out to play with

and a number of various images to inspire... this little guy is only the first... i'm off on an exploration of design, colour, stitch, etc. etc. etc

for the scientific sewing of wonderful things!

a lovely start for alchemy. i'm taken with the white background cloth in the last image. it looks like a gathering of white leaves.

Now I adore your little birdie image and inspiration...all the fabrics and threads...however I have no idea what you have in mind to create. I just know it will be something "unexpected" and miraculous with your amazing talents. You have peaked my curiosity dear...
