Blue and Grey

I watched some DVRed episodes of Project Runway this week, and one of them from season 2 (I think) was about the inspiration behind a garment. It made me start thinking about what inspires me. Some things are obvious, like the colors of the sand and ocean on a vacation we took last year. Other times, I really have to think about what gave me an idea. Right now, I'm finding a lot of inspiration in light blues and greys, and realized I have been stuck on these colors for quite some time. (I took a photo of the blues and greys of our bathroom, not realizing how bad the mirror needs to be cleaned!) I love the way the grey pants and striped shirt I bought yesterday look together--once again, that combination. And, last, but not least, the most obvious evidence of my attraction to these colors: my quilt-in-progress. The top is done, and the back almost there. These colors are really making me happy and inspiring me to create right now. Oh, and have you noticed the colors of my blog?

  1. Blue and grey are a lovely subtle and relaxing combination, they do remind me of the freshness of the sea in winter. I just love your quilt top, and can't wait to see more of it. You have been very busy in the last few days, I am just catching up with all your creations - I am especially fond of the grey quilted bird - he is marvellous.

  4. hey: small world huh? i was part of the jet program and taught in nara city. where were you? we are going to go back in four years when my husband graduates but right now we are in riverside. unfortunately we don't have a car so it is difficult to thrift any fabric right now, though that is my ambition. do you still teach esl/efl here? take care.

  5. i answered my own question about your job after i read a little more of your blog. that is really amazing that you found a TESL job here in jax. i didn't think it was possible. i am on the verge of giving up on this city and moving someplace horrible like atlanta. i am glad that you found my blog so i could find yours. take care.
