I had such a hard time getting started in my studio this morning. I knew I should be making more potholders for my Etsy Shop, but it just wasn’t working.
So I cleaned up. I put all the fabric I left on my worktable on Friday away and swept the floor. Then I meditated and did some yoga.
It took about an hour before I found the dragons.
They came from a wraparound skirt I bought years ago. I’ve used other parts of the skirt for other pieces that I’ve made. I had these two pieces of the skirt, with dragons on them, left and they seemed to want to be together.
As if they were guarding something.
When I found the dark purple velvet with the red stripe though it, I knew it was a beginning of a new quilt.
Alchemy I kept thinking to myself as I sewed the fabric together. I’m creating something bigger than the parts.
After I took this picture, I figured out what will happen next on the quilt, but didn’t have a chance to sew it together.
I’ll get to it tomorrow.
