Stitching on Brain Dump: Stitch the Scary Stuff in Your Brain (alternately known as The Impractical Color Wheel) continued over the weekend with Yellow! Oh Yellow is a happy color that brings much angst to many a quilter. It’s warm and demands attention like the sun.
There is actually more stitching, however in a desire to entice:
This is some of the scary stuff that dwells inside the brain. It’s not as scary as one would imagine. And in true teacherly fashion I’m going to point out it’s not perfect. It’s not meant to be, it’s meant to show that stuff happens when we’re stitching the scary stuff…sometimes our hands move, or we’re distracted by __________________________ (insert distraction of choice here).
Small quilts, and intentional practice pieces (that can be made into other things) are the best places to try new to us stitches.
Last week I had the opportunity to go into Manhattan, and took advantage of some time wandering around a bit before having lunch with a friend. I happened upon a bead shop:
I wanted to do a panoramic of the whole shop as color and texture abound! It’s so cool to drink in the shades, and tones of the beads, and stones, each one unique. Then the chains! Holy mother of all things metal and delicious. Each one of these things can be stitched out as quilting motifs. Be patient peeps this will happen, maybe in the color wheel, maybe not…but certainly by the time we get to class.
Stay tuned to Instagram for updates throughout the days.
