Looking for Inspiration


This is my design wall. I was cleaning up from the Aspen fest and at the same time I was pulling fabric for my next project. It is nice to have the art cloth on the wall and I can audition partners and plan some additional surface design to add to the mix.

I have had this Perle cotton thread nest sitting on a table in my studio begging to be straightened out. I can’t put it away the way it is.


I cut some pieces of cardboard, and it will be my evening TV watching project until they all look like this.

perlecottonneatTonight, I also added bamboo hanging rods to the other two aspen pieces.


And so that was pretty much my day.

    That nest looks all too familiar. I have several upatairs that need attention. It does sound like nesting but I get a touch of that from time to time as well. It’s the only ting that stands between me and total chaos. Enjoy your day.

    Are you planning to watch Glee? The pilot is on tonight (it originally ran several months ago). I think it’s just a riot with great singing and dancing.

    Can’t wait to see your next piece!

    when my threads are tangled like that, i would almost rather throw them out then to detangle them…of course i never do, but is it ever a headache to get them straightened out.

    From alphabetizing spices to winding threads –if I didn’t know better, I’d say you were in that pre-birth nesting phase! ha ha!
