Colour inspiration for today

I do love my daily calendar image, from the art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This painting is for today, and in my studio, I gathered my handmade felt and thrums of my handspun yarn….haven’t made anything yet. Just letting it all speak to me as I continue making the HeartFelt(ed)s, those wee ornaments that beautify and brighten up any space, any mood, any day…..

another batch of new scarves, and the realization of where inspiration has seeped in

So I have this wonderful book about textiles around the world, a resource book for me that I look at — longingly and lovingly — every so often. Was using it as a weight while trimming the latest scarves off the loom, and realized just how much it has seemingly influenced my work. That, or the wonderful textiles I have amassed over the years from around the world. At any rate, the influence is seeping into my work, which delights me! Yes, those are my scarves to the left of the book.
