Piece by Piece

I have been working on a little sewing project for a friend. This has been taking place behind the scenes of family life for months now and I am so excited that it is almost ready to be revealed here. It involves art and fabric and an exhibition. So stay tuned this week for more information.

But just for a little sneak peak at the project I thought I would share some of my inspiration. I was writing about my own creative endeavours and what influences my ideas. Denyse Schmidt has been very important over the last few years. She creates and breaks the rules about colour, pattern, texture and placement. And so do I. When my sewing lines are not straight and I use the natural curve and shape of a garment in a new project, it breaks conventions. Freedom!
