Monday Blues - Fabric Design Continued

Fishy Mystery fabric collection - Who broke the fish tank?
I am not a resolution person. However I see new beginning in every week. Started this one with a long walk by the sea just an hour after sunrise. Brilliant light and birds singing... Perfect start. No single picture taken - wanted it all intact when I close my eyes and move there for a minute or two of relaxation. The grass and flowers are so vigorously growing this week. Sakuras have just started blooming on the Cherry blossom alley.

I than dived in my to-do list and marked it done in the afternoon to leave some fabric time before dinner.

Drawing Sunday

My gloomy windy, cocoa Sunday was coloured in dusty blue and golden yellow. Grey and and white have never been considered colours here. My passion for colour just can't allow it.
The second print on the last row was a Spoonflower contest entry some time ago. The whole collection grew around it while I was playing with the matrix effect. Love the non-zodiac feel of the mosaic effect of a simple matrix repeat. Finally 4 sunny prints have been just added. Not sure this will be the final version. It might be.

The colours are so new to me. I mean in general. And so expected in a way too - I painted lots of greys, and goldens, and whites at home lately. The dusty blue was painted a few years ago in the studio /former one/. So this is a collection of paints used lately.

Spring Update

Windy afternoon with no sun, a cup of hot cocoa, folders of pictures... my recipe for getting back to the blog after almost 2 months break.

Lots and lost of things to share and I will start with some February projects today.

Champagne mobius winter hug

A fast knit first - mobius: oft champagne colour, cozy mohair yarn, favourite Cat Bordhi pattern with traditional mod - the picot edge. Countless stitches in the last row but pays off with delicate finish. This was a gift and relaxing late winter knit.
