Creating this piece for the Heart of the Home project was just about the most perfect reset for my creative spirit. Work has been busy…I really struggled with a large piece before a deadline…and I really needed to clear my mind and get ready for my staycation (yay!).
I have been using the hashtag #joyspotting a great deal – if you have read Joyful, you’ll know why ;). Playing with my favorite tools and supplies this weekend has been, well, joyful, so in the spirit of appreciation:
Mmm. If you have not worked with Windham Fabrics’ blender “Bedrock,” you need to give it a try. So many colors…and I love the dappled effect for art quilts.
Red cat? Sure. Hmm. On second thought…peeeeel…replace with an orange Jackson. One of the many reasons I 💜💜💜 MistyFuse!
This is a relatively new addition- Heidi Proffetty’s perfect tweezers. And they ARE! If you are obsessive about trimming stray threads to make your raw-edged appliqué look great– you need these, trust me.
And, of course, my NeonKitty box of Aurifil thread 💓.
Ready for 10 days of productive studio time!
