Fabrics

Kaffe Fassett's "Wheel of fortune" quilt

I'm working on a few projects, most of which I can't really show before end of December :o)

Meanwhile, my interest at the moment is shifting more and more from jewels to fabrics. I have "discovered" (lol) about Kaffe Fassett. I'm madly in love with his work and prints, and I've found a way to buy fabrics designed by him here.

Perhaps because I'm reflecting about the Heroine's Journey which I just finished, I feel a strong urge to do something with old fashioned flowery fabrics. I feel it's like connecting to who I really am. It reminds me of dear old gentlemen and ladies which I knew as a little girl, when the World seemed like a magic place to be in. Well, so maybe if I put lots of flowers in my home, magic will come back. I suppose it's all about love and tenderness. I always tried to be strong and reasonable, whereas I'm really a softy eccentric person. I can't believe it took me so long to face the obvious ! The warrior is very tired. Bring on the heroine.

Hi Helene, thanks so much for leaving me a candy comment on my blog. I would love to correspond with you, if you'd send me an email. I have lots of beading stuff, but definitely love the fabric more.

I am so glad you found Kaffe Fassett -- he is one of my favorites. Found his first book on knitting many, many moons ago while visiting his parents' restaurant in California and have been smitten by his wizardry with color and fiber ever since.
