Bird gifts and my creative process ~

I scanned a few more images from my new book for you!! What is it about the sparrow that I'm always drawn to?

I'm in the thinking stage of a new art quilt.....thinking and playing ~ piling things together, taking things away, nothing's really attached but everything that coordinates is being considered.

It's so much fun to find the items that work and that your mind saw before you ever physically placed them together. The creative process is soothing therapy for the soul ~

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday sweet friends ~
hugs and love,

Can't wait to see what you will create with this beautiful fabric.

I just have to say I visit your sight often to get inspired and to just listen to your beautiful soothing music.

Thanks for continuing to inspire...

This one looks like it will be very dreamy and romantic from the fabrics you have chosen. I began yesterday doing the same process for the project I told you about. I am so excited! Can't wait to see the quilt.

I love when you show all of your finds and treasures. It does inspire me to get into the studio and start feeling fabrics and ribbons and other great pieces to create with.

Thank you again for the wonderful images. Hugs to you and your family.

Miss you.

That is what I love about your blog. You always create the most beauiful things and you are so generous. You should check out the site Craft Hope. It's an amazing organization for crafty ladies (like yourself) to use their talents to serve others. They should be announcing project3tomorrow!!! Thanks for the images. I can't wait to use them!

Love the fabrics, I know the quilt will be lovely. Everything you make is wonderful.

Have you ever done a tutorial on how to put postcard pictures on fabric so you can add that to your quilt? I would sure like to learn.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and give little Clara a hug from me.

Beautiful pieces Dawn! I understand what you're saying! Isn't it exciting when you start pulling things out to start a new project? It IS good therapy! I love this process too.
