While I'm locked up inside the Austin Hilton most of the day -- we have managed to get out and about a bit.
We visited a local fabric shop (darling place) and found the most fabulous cotton/linen fabric by Designer Etsuko Furuya -- called "Echino"for Kokka. Oh My! When I saw this fabric I almost flipped... it is so beautiful (and a bit pricey). I did manage to convince myself to buy "A little".... I'm glad I did!
The remainder of our "out and about" time I just let my mind / eye see designs in the landscape. Here are some of the beautiful "things" that made me think of designs for quilts or fabrics. Check out these photos -- Let your imagination flow -- these inspire me -- how about you ?
