Something's Happening Here and I Don't Know What It is

I've found myself being mesmerized by some images, ideas, blogs lately and I want to share a bit of it with you.  Many of these 'enlightenments' have come to me in circuitous routes, but many have happened through art for housewives, which is a marvelous resource and I urge you to check it out on a regular basis.

For instance just click here on Sri Threads and feast your eyes.  I practically tear up it's so breathtakingly, humanly, amazing.  ahhh.

And then reading from Grace and Mending about her discipline of procuring found cloth to create profound pieces.  I can go on and on, but let me just show pictures.

Just what's hitting me these day...enjoy

So that's it for now, back to sewing, and thinking, and day dreaming, and...
What are your "something's up and I don't know what" things?  hmmm.

  1. What an artistic feast for the eyes!

    Lately my bed has been my biggest inspiration - I've been terribly sick. Hopefully now that I'm finishing up with school I can get better and embrace my free time asap.

    1. I'm glad you find it so, Megan. I take naps too for breathing space, or inspiration, or breaks in-between. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. It must be the end of school wrap-up phase. Take care!

  3. Wonderful coalescing of textures, all bearing the imprint of the hands of the makers; expressions of values you also hold dear - what's not to love?

  6. Lovely, lovely, lovely. My oldest, The Costume Technician, has done some gorgeous fabric and very tactile art, but still think you have to draw and paint to be a "real" artist. I'll be sharing this post with her.

    Hmmmm, why do I think a sock pullover is do-able for me? Seriously, what is making me want to sew these days are fashions from the 20s, 30s, and 50s. I am starting with mending some GW Boutique finds, and then it will be time to pick a pattern. Psyched!

      I love the sock pants, only wish I would've kept all those holey sox over the years...

      Alright, a sewing partner!
