Getting Organized With New Beginnings

This soft grey is one of my favourites from this summer's dyeing.
I plan to stitch it into a cloudy sky
I was thinking of adding white fabric into the piece

then I tried it with another blue grey and a shot of yellow...
...I think I will get started on the stitching
before I make the final decision.

Then another layer of colours got pinned to the design wall.

It was a lovely morning of putting colours together.

As more layers of colours were pinned to the wall....

....they became edged with flashes of previous colours....
I liked that.

Perhaps I will include bits and pieces of colour
at the edges of this new series.

Now all the potential colour combinations
are pinned to a design wall that gets no sun
just in case they might fade
as they wait to be stitched.

I came home from Manitoulin and Collingwood
intending to start five new pieces.
It looks like I have done better than that!
Perhaps an overachiever!


  1. mmmm so yummy those soft murmurings

  2. You have some lovely subtle colours there. Looking forward to seeing what you do next!

  3. Your head must be spinning with the possibilities!

  4. It's going to be so interesting to follow what you do with these. xx

  5. Really beautiful and soft dyed fabrics. I look forward to seeing what you do with them. Excellent.

  6. Oddly enough, I was taken by that red pin! For some reason it looks as though it belongs.
