Inspiration comes from so many places. I will freely admit that I get a lot of inspiration from seeing what other talented quilters are making and sharing in blogland. You frequently fan my smoldering embers to flame, and I thank you SO much for taking the time to share what you are doing.
I am also inspired by books. I have several of the Kaffe Fassett books, including this one. His artistry is always such a happy-maker to me. Have you ever looked at something and liked it so much that your heart actually hurt? It happens to me a lot.
You can see that I was inspired by the cover photo in the book above. I did look at the pattern, but as soon as I read "paper piecing" my eyes glazed over and I closed the book and started making it up as I went along. I'm bad about that.
As usual, I don't know what I'm doing, just muddling along and having a good time. Sewing is frequently therapy for me, as I know it is for some of you.
Fortunately I do have helpers to advise me. (My friend thinks they are just waiting for me to leave the room so they can rearrange what I've done so far. She may be right!)
A little glimpse of what's going on out in the back yard.
This came inside with me to sit on the kitchen windowsill. I need all the inspiration I can get to wash dishes!
This is a look at the shower in the hospital where Miss Ru was recently a patient. (Yes, thank God!!! she is back home.) I just thought this was such a neat idea. The bench in the shower folds flat to the wall when not in use.
And then here it is, all secure and ready for a safe and secure shower. I wish I could put one of these in my Mom's house!
It is such a pleasant day here - cool, but not cold and so far quiet except for the birds I can hear singing outside my sewing room window and the occasional murmuring of the chickens in their pen.
I hope you have a wonderful, productive and happy weekend!
Hugs and kisses,
