Every now and then I shock myself and sit down and yearn to do something a little different (different for me in any case).
I'm normally quite a simple kinda gal..simple needs, simple likes and that particularly applies to my sewing tastes.
But every so often I see something that inspires me and gets me wishing to try something a little different. This also coincided with me being asked to produce a piece with something a bit more than my usual minimalistic style.

I can't say too much about the above piece and the project. I'm not even sure I should be showing even this fuzzy glimpse, but, hey, it's my blog right? And you'll know soon enough... (suffice it to say I'm just a teensy bit excited about what it's for...)

In the meantime, while I was in this crazy phase, (I know, wild, huh?) I also played around with some of my pieces of fabric, just to see what happened and how it would turn out.

There isn't really much more to show than this. It's merely time out from my usual to spend some time creating something that I wouldn't normally.
I really should step out of my comfort zone more often...I do enjoy it so.



Yes, we should all do it more, it's good for the head. It really is having time to do so though isn't it!
