Why give up?

When there is a new opportunity to start over
challenge your sewing skills.

Some one asked me if I would sew something for 2020 Foundations Revealed Contest? Yes, I just might do that. If you would like to read more about the 2020 theme, rules and browse the Mood boards click on the original sites links in the quote below. This is how the 2020 theme is presented on the website:

Mythologies and legends of rebirth and restoration abound across the world. From the phoenix rising from the ashes to the Goddess Flora heralding Spring, delve into the patterns, textures and stories of traditional sagas. The circular economy shows us a life cycle: rebirth of worn out things, given new life and purpose.

FR Contest 2020: Mood board ”Renewal”

Our Members chose this year’s theme from three possibilities that all reflect sustainability, recycling and upcycling. How can we textile artists be a part of the solution, rather than part of the problem, when it comes to waste and toxic practices? We encourage you to look at this theme in addition to Renewal as an extra source of ideas to incorporate into your entry this year. Natural dyes, recycled plastics, utilising fabric scraps – everyone can do something to be a creative part of the solution!
Additional mood board: ”Upcycling and Sustainability”

Is this buying silk fabrics in thrift stores turning into
a shopping addiction?

Must have FABRIC
Good price
Buy now – sew later

Yesterday I came home with this vibrating ghastly pinkish magenta silk fabric with contrasting light blue and yellow stripes. Two pieces one 3.30×0,9m and the other 1,6×0,9m. Price a bargain. But what am I going to sew from this fabric? The colour is mildly put luminescent modern perhaps even tom modern for trimmings?

WOW, Just love the sound …

Ååå Glitter!

Det finns något alldeles oemotståndligt över dessa extra glittriga glassmycken. Som om självaste solens glitter i havet en varm sommardag har kapslats in i varje enskild pärla och reflekteras ut i rummet oavsett vilket ljus som faller på glaset.

Det händer inte ofta jag hittar denna typ av glassmycken på loppis och det kan gå många år mellan fynden. Mellan kedja och Brosch är det nästan 5 år. Lite roligt är att de passar så fint ihop.
