First of all thank you to you all for your nice comments on the blog-birthday. There would be no point on writing if you were not reading!
I had a lovely weekend - in a crafty kind of way.
I started writing the pattern for the baby hat but as I had a quilt guild meeting in town Saturday, I had to gear myself towards quilting since we were going to spend most of the day sewing. Actually, I was not inspired to quilt at all and did not concentrate too much on the fabric selection on Friday when I was getting prepared for the meeting.
I got up very early Saturday and noticed that I had not seen the newest show on the QuiltShow yet and decided to watch it while drinking coffee to soak up some inspiration. The show featured DianneHire's work and I did get the inspiration I missed... Dianne Hire's work is very free and colorful and she has all kinds of attachments in her quilts; she calls them "danglers". During the meeting I kept thinking of her work and I had to try the similar approach.
It was very refreshing. I sewed happily through the meeting, once home I kept thinking of the unfinished wall hanging while I worked on the baby hat and first thing Sunday morning I returned to the quilt. I sewed few new blocks in this new liberated form and decided to finish the quilt the same day. I was so happy in the end, that I almost could not sleep last night, I just kept thinking of the wall hanging.
Isn't it wonderful when something just works out and the image just flows out of your brain and your hands just produce this vision?
Here is Monday, new week hopefully full of similar happenings... actually this weekend was a rare treasure, happy accident that occurs just every now and then, but oh it feels so good when it does happen.
Wool with you,
