The Silk Tie Fairy Strikes Again...

I was expecting a package this week, but not from brother Mad Max. He snagged a couple more silk ties for my collection while cruising the aisles at Goodwill. Note the one on the right has my favorite colors - teal green and gold with a bit of rust thrown in. is a reminder that I should start incorporating some of these wonderful silks into my current work. Perhaps this is the hint I was searching for? I've been feeling a bit unsure of direction lately - not that I don't have a lot to choose from. A friend refers to it as that nebulous time between projects when you are still elated at having finished one, but now must decide which of the many ideas and unfinished projects remaining should rise to the top of the priority list. Anything with silk sure doesn't feel like top priority right now, but maybe that's the problem. Maybe I'm focusing too much on "shoulds" and not even considering a little decadence!

Hi Sheila, Why not use the silk as fabric in one of your on-going series, like the birches or the grids. Have it both ways -- continue the focus you have going, and incorporate new material.

Is really spring here in Wisconsin.
