Inspirational Designs

Sylvia, my stitching friend and partner in our "Stitching on the Lake" and "Stitching on the Bay" days, travelled to Turkey recently and bought me back this beautiful little ceramic bowl.   As I draw inspiration for embroidery from lots of different sources, I think I can see a little canvas work creation coming out of this type of design!    Aren't the colours great?

And while I was in San Gimignano in Italy recently, I purchased this beautiful little ceramic bowl with a lid to keep my earrings in, and I thought this would make a nice little embroidery also!   Stay tuned - all will be revealed soon!

A new arrival to my bookshelf is "It's Quilting Cats and Dogs" by Lynette Anderson, a well known Australian designer of lovely creative things.    This book has some gorgeous little patchwork and stitchery projects all crying out to be stitched!  I'm looking forward to starting something soon!


  1. Beautiful bowl from Italy - such vibrant colors

  2. Very beautiful bowl, the colors are so vibrant, you are very lucky to have such a nice friend. The quilt book looks very interesting.

  3. I love the colors!!! Makes me smile!

    Oh....I'm posting a pic of the Angel pillow I made tomorrow. I hope you'll check it out and that I made you proud ;-)
