I'm on a roll! Yesterday while lugging up about 6 boxes of fabric from my basement (due to a hot water tank letting go and a flood!) I decided that since I already had my sewing machine set up on the dining room table I might as well make use of having all that fabric and machine together in one place. Even after having my studio built for all my sewing , I still like to sit in the dining room and sew.... go figure.
So.... What's a crazy girl to do? With boxes of colors and fabric choices - silks, satins, brocades, velvets. damask.... the fabric started to fly. Turned up my Higher Octave CD and let my mind wander back to the day I had heard that music for the first time. I was in Costa Rica a few years ago where the world was full of beautiful colors and scenery. The different shades of blues I pulled together represent the beautiful ocean and sky ; the vibrant reds, pinks and purples were the gorgeous flowers that are found all over the island. You can tell where my mind is - out of this snowy and cold winter here in Massachusetts!
Hmmmm...I'm wondering... is there a market out there for Naked CQ Blocks? LOL! I love putting them together and find it extremely relaxing. I actually finished 13 blocks in one day so now I need to find the time to start the fun part of embellishing them. Most of these blocks will be used for needle books, sewing cases, possibly a purse and maybe a pillow or two. I started working on a purple needle book last night for a friend and have to admit, I really enjoyed working with another color pallet other than blue. I hope to take before and after pictures as I complete each project ....LOL! We'll see how long this takes!
