Color inspiration and a Sneeky Peeky

Hi ya! Hope you had a wonderful Easter. It was soggy, cloudy and windy in my little part of the world. A perfect day to stay home and design a new Folk Art Fusion piece!


Here's  a little sneeky peeky of my progress so far. I am combining elements from two of my previous stitchery designs.


I will admit I am a bit of an addict when it comes to Pinterest. Talk about hopping down the rabbit hole! hee,hee,hee.


One of my boards is called Color Palate. Here I pin photos of color combinations which intrigue me.


Recently, I have been drawn to the way orange and teal harmonize together. It's so pretty and calming to me.


Needless to say, I was thrilled to find "Perfect Pairings" fat quarters by Kim Diehl. I purchased these from Shabby Fabrics. They will be used in this Folk Art Fusion piece.


I hope to have this pattern ready for you by Summer. I know, I know, but Summer will be here before you know it and it really does take a long time to design, write, not to mention make the piece. Then to photograph it and send all the stuff to the graphic designer. Yep, Summer it will be. :)

So what have you been working on?

xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies

Good morning dear and wonderful friend! Oh, we finally got the perfect weather day yesterday and here you got rain! But spring finally made an appearance and we took advantage of it. We went for a walk on the lake at sunrise, then I spent time in the garden. I saw Natasha and Boris and a slew of squirrels. It was fabulous.

Your teal ideas are STUNNING! All your designs are like real flowers in the garden. The pop up fresh with new and thrilling ideas. Much love my friend, Anita

Ooh, love the flower basket. I love orange and teal together. My first home was decorated in rust and teal and many years later my son the orated his apartment in orange and aqua. Can't wait to see how your piece uses the colors!

Love this post - the process, the evolution of a design, that's always of such interest to me. I'm also a fan of Kin Diehl fabrics and have most of her last line - I've been using them in some quilts I am making lately and so love the sparkle of lovely colour they bring.
This will be another gorgeous design Shell!
