...an interesting prospect to say the least! But I am talking about my colour "soul" at present....and that has been interesting! This week I am heading off to Material Obsession for the "Soul Searching" workshop with Kathy & Reece Scannell....also known as "Understanding Colour and working it". Phew! As preparation I have had to cut 2.5" strips in neutrals and colour groups of red, blue, yellow, green, purple and orange (about 24 of each). That is a lot of cutting! Kathy says on the blurb...you might be surprised what you learn as you cut. Well, she wasn't wrong!!! It was fun to see what I have collected and how I felt cutting the strips....my mood definitely changed according to what I was cutting...and I much prefer clearer colours than murky tones. It was also nice to remember what was bought where and for what purpose. Lots of old fabrics have been separated recently from my general stash, some were included, but most were just not me any more...so they have been relegated on the out pile. Whilst this might be the purpose of going through scraps, I just had no interest in using pieces that have been relegated to the dusty depths of my cupboards for 15+ years...they had been abandoned for a reason!
This is the inspiration for the class...the soul searching quilt (borrowed from the MO blog). It should be great fun, I have been hoping to attend since I attended a mini talk at the Craft Show in June...might be interesting to find out more about colour and what it means to me.
It has been busy here as usual...DD moved...sniff...I will miss her daily presence in my life, but she is happy and I am happy for her. We have had a few trips to Newcastle looking at houses...there have been a couple we like...who knows what lies ahead.
I have had some time working on my Circle Game BOM...slightly behind but catching up now...
and the cushion I bought at MO recently.
Hope all is well wherever you are...looking forward to sharing my workshop with you!
