sewing Saturday... abstracts, owls, and flamingos oh my
The above abstract piece was a surprise. I was working on other projects, but found I needed some medicinal stitching. Last week I showed the little red piece,
This week I got out purple tiny scraps and turquoise ones... and sewed while listening to the latest book.
Look at the little curvy pieces here... they were scraps from cutting the snowball block pieces.... from scraps. Don't they look cool pieced in??? well I like them.
I LOVE the way this is coming along, with red, purple and turquoise sections. wonder if I'll keep going with other color, or a mix of these colors. It's a good way to view color and composition. A good study of how lines influence the balance of a piece.
It's soothing to put the puzzle of same size or angle pieces together.
It's not useful, it's pretty.
It's about the process of making, of creation.
That is valuable... my mental and emotional health is improved while making.
It pleases me too. why, just look at the curvy print repeating the curves of the snowball scraps.
While sorting this week, I came across this misplaced little piece
When we create, when we make order of chaos, it is valuable time spent. It brings us joy, and joy is sorely lacking in our contentious atmosphere these days. It stops the noise for a bit, allowing me to just breathe for a bit.
I also made a final owl, or another one because they are so stinkin' cute I may make more.
I went through purchases made over the last year, and washed the fabrics
I found this little beaded flamingo in that pile, purchased at a quilting event! Glad someone knows a flamingo can go a long way to soothing the soul.
