Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
Look at the blessing I received in the mail from my mother-in-law! She currently lives over seas and is very excited about my work. I had asked her if she ever saw any silk that was reasonably priced, because it can be so expensive here in the US (if you can even find it!). I mainly wanted scraps to experiment with because I rarely use yardage of any kind. She emailed to tell me that some was on the way, and a few days later I received a box, bulging at the seams with silk! Imagine a mix between a kid in a candy store and a quilter in a fabric store and that's about how excited I was!
The pictures don't do the colors justice (which is usually the case), but trust me when I say the colors are luscious and the textures are phenomenal. I took another picture of a couple of my favorites close-up. You can see the tone-on-tone embossed floral designs. In person, they are somewhere between a deep purple and violet. Just beautiful! Now I''m off to experiment with some of it. :)
