Sometimes I have difficulties trying to explain to others (you know, non-crafters; read husband) how not doing any creative work makes me feel. I have tried comparing it to work (work work), like “I get very restless just like you do when not working”. Yeah, no results yet. Anyway; during our stay at Gran Canaria I was looking at lines and contrasts and textures and colours everywhere we went, bringing my camera and stopping every 10 steps or so to have a closer look, just to feed my inner creativity. I find trees fascinating and even more the trees that grow in other places, like the palms on the island. We don’t have too many of them way up here in the north, only small ones growing in pots indoors. There are just so many different lines and colours and jagged edges which would transfer wonderfully into quilts some day in the future (way into the future). From afar you’ll see this But if you look closer you’ll find these And theseAnd this And this And how about a Canarian Beauty And this colour combo Yeah, I hope to be back to my regular fabric fixes soon!
