As one Fish Charm nears finishing, several more are started...
This is January - A Silk & Shibori Fish Charm.
... in Celebration of a New Year's resolution; following my instincts.
Shibori Girl Indigo hand-dyed fabrics,
Nicki Lee's RavioLee Dreams hand-dyed laces,
Coordinated silk/silk tapestries,
Crazy-quilted stitched, including various beads and charms.
Here are some "pretties" started.
This beautiful fan-shaped print was sent to me by Kathy , it has a soft pink and dark plum that I want to highlight with embroidery; coordinating fabric includes a coral print and a soft pink silk.
Auditioning, auditioning, auditioning...
I'm beginning to notice Turquoise everywhere...
...and loving it.
Coming Soon - "Stories"...
How many times has your "creative" path crossed with someone else and it ends up validating your project/ or even magnifying it to another level? My notebook is filled with such experiences!
So, a small group of Silk & Shibori Fish Charms will be made up with these whimsical & wonderful "stories" in mind.
They will highlight the Shibori Girl Indigo hand-dyed fabrics/or Shibori Girl Ribbon and Nicki Lee's RavioLee Dreams hand-dyed laces along with applique and stitchery (Sashiko stitching seen here).
Time to Share a Thought:
A quote that Gurmukh added in her book,
The 8 Human Talents -
"The very purpose of our life is happiness, the very nature of our life is towards happiness." - The Dalai Lama.
Enjoy Your Sewing!
