The Colour of Rain

This bottom photo was the view from out of the car window yesterday - a windy, rainy day for a refreshing adventure up island, with camera in hand. I like going out with no destination in mind, seeing where I end up and discovering surprises enroute. I have also purchased a few more solid coloured fabrics for my Nancy Crow workshop supply list, although I've decided to reduce the amount of colours I had orignally planned to have - I will still have lots. I continue to be amazed by the variety of colour and I notice how much satisfaction I get locating the appropriate place for another small swatch to go on the papers I've made up to track what I have so far. Sometimes a new colour doesn't fall into any of the categories I have and, of course, the 24 choices of various values that I'm working with are only a small sample of what's possible, but the bigger picture of colour is mind boggling - and exciting! I've also stitched a velvet backing onto the handstitched piece I am making, in preparation for more stitch on the front.

Thanks, Sophia! Taking the photos is a great way to keep my design muscle in flex!
