In between getting serious about some major spring cleaning this week, I stole a few snippets of time since my last post to move closer in the direction of finishing some already overdue project commitments. If for no other reason than to relieve my guilty conscious as being late weighs heavy on my mind, I am posting updates to three works-in-progress below. I hope they also may spark some creativity to those of you looking for a bit of color or inspiration to kick start your own spirit!
Below, one side of a skinny page with another one of Lewis Hine's famous figures - all of the various images now cut and ready to hit the 'paste' ... while I was cutting these out, I happened upon The Story Of The Day by Brian Andreas that seemed to fit in here -
Riding The Pony - Brian Andreas
"When I was younger, my favorite thing was riding the pony outside the Safeway. My dad always said I should save my money for something better, but I could ride for miles all over the West & always end up back at the Safeway & all it cost was a quarter & I still can't think of anything better than that. "
And the image that inspired the above by Lewis Hine -
I've also found myself back in the mood to bead and embroider - and thanks to Auntie Marsha, I have an amazing stash now of vintage tatting! I hand stitched the soft pink and yellow tatting to the page with green and pink embroidery thread.
And, still waiting for the 'right' inspiration to finish this off -
As always, a big thank you for following, reading or commenting on my posts!
