This charming nursery rhyme fabric (from Timeless Threads) inspired a quilt. That's how it often (but not always) works for me - one fabric becomes a springboard. Although sometimes too I find that in the end, the springboard fabric is discarded as the other fabrics come together as a cohesive quilt idea.
Annie Dillard, in The Writing Life (a brilliant book) talks about this in writing, how that very idea which seems to be the essential pillar of a particular piece of writing is the one which may need to be ruthlessly knocked down as the work evolves.
Sometimes a photo a day, to make me look more closely and see what is around me to be considered and captured, using the immediacy of digital photography. And possibly the odd rant, from time to time. Things made, found, discovered. A cornucopia. On the One Vivid Leaf blog, crochet!
