Inspirations and..

Impressions.. part 2

project is completed.


So, here is my sewed collage impression, of my drawing. I worked at it almost every day for the last couple of weeks to finish it.  I used running stitch to add fabric pieces together. I also feel that I could have added few more details with thread for extra texture.., maybe I was in a hurry to see the end result.
It measures about 12x12 inches, and I still have not thought about how I want to display it.

Inspirations....

and impressions...


For sometime, I have been feeling uninspired when I do either stitching, crocheting or other crafts. At times I felt I force myself to keep engaged in the piece I am working . And, that wasn't  a good feeling.

I needed to take a break from all, and past  long weekend gave the opportunity so to do. As the weekend was coming to an end, I was felt inspired by the nature.




.. couple of pencil colour drawings, did while visiting the countryside.









The water lilies left me with a lasting impression, and that made into beginning of this project no sooner I got home. I am using the the drawing as the guide.

Saffron & Marigold flower...

saree quilt update...

I have made two of each block now.

each is different from one another.


one on the right is lacking few more details, which I will add later on. I feel very much myself in using free form to create; no restrictions or limitations.

~Photographing yellow has not been easy, even though I took all of them at the same time of the day, each lot shows variations.







My ripples of hope ; adding hopeful rows slowly.
