It’s picture day! I was so inspired by the views at my niece Sarah’s in-laws home and gardens that I had to share them with you.
The dining room. A soothing repose of creams, whites and beige. Oh my, it just hit me. Those colors will make a stunning “Tahoe to a T” (one of my newest patterns that STILL isn’t out yet) in cream and white embroidered linen and add touches of some of the gazillon laces I have collected. I love lace!
Sweet, sweet, Treats. Hmm, that could be the name of a pattern. The white ceramic pieces remind me of pieces of lace. And the flowers, Crabapple, and the yellow?, remind me of Liberty of London prints (yep, I have some of those too). Oh my gosh, mix laces and Liberty’s for a little girls Whisper Blouse (yes, workin’ on that one too). Visit, Crafsy.com/sewing patterns/DesignsbyHeidi.
Look at the shapes in this Euphorbia and the Chartreuse color!!!! Stunning. I want to stiffen some Kaffe fabric, cut out circles and fold them in half sort of and 3-D applique them on a skirt. Wouldn’t that be fun?
My brain, like the picture below, an explosion of ideas. It’s hard to shut them off.
I forgot to bring a back up battery so that was the last shot for this trip. Oh well. Plenty to keep me busy. Don’t forget to consider coming to the Artistic Alchemy Retreat this year. Hop on over to our Artisticalchemyblog.wordpress.com site and check it out.
Also, Artistic Alchemy will be at The Pine Tree Quilt Guild’s Springtime in the Pines, Quilt Show. Look for our booth on May 7th & 8th at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, in Grass Valley, CA .
Look at a picture book and have a tablet close by and start sketching! It’s only 15 minutes a day to get you going on your next creative venture. Hugs, Heidi
