Thinking about how to get textures and pattern into my journal quilts this year, I was struck by these textures this week.
Frost on the roof of the car ( my neighbours probably thought I was mad, standing up in the passenger well to get these)
Then a fortuitous find of swans' feathers near their preening area, brought home and loaded into a steel bowl. Incredible how these shapes echo the frost patterns.
Wet bubble wrap - an accident turned into something interesting manages to keep the temper from flaring I find.
And an explosion of yellows with the first daffodils bought this season.
Contrasting markedly with my well-loved fuchsia pink gloves
Too much inspiration all round, as ever.
