Finally I seem to be finding myself being pulled into the studio! Fabric bowls have been calling out to be made, and I am beginning to see a bit of productivity here. It doesn't hurt that I will be giving my "Off The Deep End" lecture at a guild this week. In that lecture, I show and talk about how fabric bowls changed the way I look at fabric and scraps, and I show the progression from bowls to my pins to a ribbon winning quilt.
This is an old photo, but there are similar ones in the works now. It will take a bit longer to finish a bunch of these as I am working on writing up the pattern and instructions for them as I make them. Taking photos of the steps and drawing the actual patterns are a bit time consuming.
Here are some of the squares of fabric fused to batting ready for final cutting.
And for your enjoyment- my first blooms of Spring!! Finally some color with the dead grass and mud.
My favorite spring flowers- Snow Glories- Chionodoxa, I have some new ones in white and pink that are still in tight bud, photos to come…
My lonely Crocus flowers… there used to be bunches of them, but they have died out in past years. The purple one was hidden among the dead stalks of my tall Phlox. I almost didn't see it hiding there.
My home is now again quiet, now that all who were here visiting have gone. Time to get back to playing with fabric. Maybe I'll get better at shorter and more often posts here… that is my plan.
