As much as I love chunky knits, nice warm hats and gloves and everything yarnworthy for chilly weather I can't believe how good the sunshine is making me feel
I think this spring/summer I need to do more mixed media work, more 'salvaged textiles', more experimantal jewelley and more of those things that make your soul go Mmmmmm thats niceeee.
In my case that means lots of lace, found pieces of metal, rescued jewelley, tea dyed ribbons, handmade lace, sari silk, those two big strands of french chandalier crystal drops that have been haunting my dreams for months, rock crystals, glass baubles and lots and lots of Art Stitching.
I'm also thinking of Muslin dresses with ribbons and silk accents, simple little pieces that would look great being layered with maybe a waistcoat and boots, dresses and tops that are perfect for summery weather. More pieces that combine silk and muslin I think, some light tops made from some ethereal floaty yarns with delicate fabrics fleated and tied
I'm going to leave you with some of the images from the 'Inspire' folder
