I am inspired by this beautiful part of the country all year....and in these weeks leading up to another retreat in the Mabel Dodge Luhan studio there, I spend time bringing my favorite pieces together.
.......................The explorer in me is anticipating what new treasures are waiting for me there.
• weathered wood • clear colors • Aspens turning • raw silk • sun-bleached linens • wrapped feathers •
|Images reminiscent of the new and old in my New Mexico palette.|
Design inspiration is everywhere. Making a design board with favorite objects and images can
inspire new work. It can be a combination of images, ideas for color combinations, maybe a pattern you want to make and buttons and trims you are ready to use.
On Choosing Materials= I am satisfied spending more time choosing combinations of materials for projects. Not all fabric is worth our time anymore.....once we admit that, letting go is easier and the special pieces rise to the top.
.......................The explorer in me is anticipating what new treasures are waiting there.
Mine your fabric stash with new eyes and infuse your Fall sewing with a new color combination.
Keep your hand in the game= Create small things that make you happy=a pincushion, maybe parts, a woven panel, a new pin or maybe a bird.
• What is ready to be made...
• What is calling you? Diane
