I got my sample quilt block out of the way yesterday, and cleaned my sewing room already for today. I'm almost finished my surfer and I've got a project that has been floating around in my head that wants out! My art like a lot of peoples, tends to follow the cycles of the seasons and the flora and fauna that populate them. Tulips have been in the stores and are growing in my garden. I can't wait for them to bloom!

If you look closely on the bottom right, you'll notice the fiber art piece the Wave with the surfer. I really needed to get this concept out of my head and created in fiber fabric!

The tulips variety in colors inspired me to pull out some old sketches and some fabrics. I love the purple orange pink combinations.

I've started layering some background fabrics--blues at the top going into greens with chiffon layered a top here and there. Underneath is a piece of white fabric over a stiff stabilizer. I plan to do lots of stitching over the background before adding appliqued tulips.

I've done similar things before but not a lot and not recently. I needed to do something a little freeing.
My sewing room is once again strewn with fabric.

Looking great! Of course the fabrics are all over...you are just like the rest of us. I am anxious to see the final product.
