Fabric is kind of like paper for me (almost, but not quite!). I love to look at (and touch) beautiful fabrics! I do sew, and like every seamstress, I have oodles of fabrics stacked up waiting to be cut and sewn into gorgeous outfits, pillows, or curtains. But it's like my Designer Paper. I just like to look at it and never end up using as much as I should. So there it sits, being hoarded and useless -- except for providing eye candy. Which sometimes is pretty nice, don't you think? Just to look at something for the sheer joy of its beauty? That's my rationalization, anyway, for not sewing and using my DP! ;)
Today's SCS Inspiration Challenge gave me the opportunity to look at some beautiful fabrics. I couldn't choose just one, so I chose three swatches:
The little "peace" charm is attached with silver cord. The image from Embrace Life is watercolored using an aqua brush and dye inks pads. I had a bit of lace trim and added that to represent the edging on the full quilt piece. The main panel is raised on dimensionals.
For my layout, I chose Beate's weekend sketch HERE.
It's Never Too Late
to find peace
Nobody can prevent you from finding peace.
Unless you empower them.
If something is stopping you from reaching it,
act on it.
If it's outside your powers,
stop worrying about it.
Peace comes from within.
Search inside yourself.
"A peace above all earthly dignities,
A still and quiet conscience." -- William Shakespeare
