Gay Ann Rogers and her February inspirations. And have you seen her new mystery on her website?
Bargello - for examples, see Liz Morrow's bargello on Picasa, or http://lovetostitch99.blogspot.com/search/label/Bargello.
I bought a couple of books on bargello over the last few weeks and here's some of what I found to inspire me.
Earth Laughs - I discovered this design from M Designs this week. I love all the flowers and colour and patterns!
'Earth laughs in flowers' is a great quote from E.E. Cummings and inspirational in its own way too. I love the way E.E. Cummings uses words.
Flickr again. This week I've been browsing around photos of Scotland and some of my favourite places.
Among this week's Flick favourites, you'll see some of Jane's appliqued felt brooches - the final item in this weeks list of inspirations - I want them all! They are just so gorgeous - I love all the colour and the way she uses the felt. See her photostream on Flickr or her Etsy shop.
One thing that is definately not inspirational this week, is Bl*gger with all it's word verification issues! I've now switched off word verification on on my blog so that those who were having problems should now be able to comment. For those who talked of switching between Firefox and Internet Explorer - I'm already using IE and still having the problems.
Over the past few weeks I've been making increasing use of Google Reader and discovering all sorts of feeds I can add to it which can be really helpful to track things I tend to forget. I'm now even subscribed to the comments feed from this blog, to my Flickr recent activity and have just discovered that I can subscribe to shop feeds in Etsy to show me when new items are posted! What can I discover next?
