Brown Batiks & Tula Pink
These Rainbow Bee blocks for April came with a lot of hijinx. I only needed to make two, but they brought a lot of colour coordination activities (which I love more than a game of Twister), and laughter along the way. Despite Mr. Sparkles thinking those Aneela Hoey turtles were fish, I spared his life. I also got to cut into my Notting Hill stash for the first time! I’m discovering the more I love a fabric, the more I enjoy using it. It’s all about inspiration, so don’t let yourself get weighed down by boring threads. I also used dots from MoMo’s Oh Deer range and Michael Miller’s Ta Dot range for the first time–the bigger the better I always say!
While making these I learned something about my own personal style as well. I lurve contrast. It comes in many forms, and I’m not just talkin’ dark versus light, but contrast between ideas, colours, textures, themes, eras, styles, etc. Now that I have verbalised this, I’m gonna start looking out for it more, and see if I can really push the boundaries. Brown batiks and Tula Pink, anyone?
Don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I’ll go ahead and have to prove you wrong.
Really, thank goodness it’s any kind of Friday!
