spring on

as you can probably tell, i'm pretty smitten with my sewing lately, until last night. i was trying to make another skirt, as it turned out, i changed my mind on the fabric- no love for it anymore. this half finished skirt was now shoved aside for more interesting craft to come.

on another thought, maybe someone else would like a handmade skirt? perhaps i will finish it eventually and see if there would be any takers.

lotus by amy butler

anyway. i have been inspired by crafters everywhere as of late. especially six.5 stitches baby clothes. i wanted to make a cute outfit for my niece. my sister-in-law dresses her in pink mostly. though i am more with alison's philosophy on "no pink for girls!" so i bought these prints to make a simple sun dress and pants. i hope this would work.

embroidered whites

of course there's also something for me! some embroidered whites i found in this amazing fabric store in atlanta. i was all giddy when i asked the owner if they have some black fusible interfacings, the owner was wondering if i needed that for scad. heh... no, i'm not an art student, but imagine if i am one. how great would that be?!

if only we can decide what we truly want out of life and receive the trainings to become one, when we are all matured and thoughtful. like now. i would probably never wanted to be a scientist. i think i liked the idea of science more than science itself. however i can honestly say that i love art, conceptually and practically.

i'm thinking that maybe i should start using "whispering pine" as a forum to share my love of everything artsy. so let's begin with some sock yarn. beautifully photographed variegated yarns are always inspiring. isn't it!

happy spring, everyone!


Yum! What IS that sock yarn? It's wonderful!

I'm curious, what's the name of the fabric store you visited in Atlanta? I live there and I'm always on the lookout for great fabric shops!

that skirt fabric would make for a really nice needle case, if you felt like sewing one of those instead.

your sock yarn photo is making me drool.

I can't wait to see the baby clothes! The fabric looks great. And a handmade skirt? (raising hand!)

What a compliment - to be thought an art student!!! And an art student attending SCAD, too! Yes, your photos are artistic and inspiring, please use this as your "artistic expression forum." :o)

LOVE those prints! Do you have details about the designer/company? (I've caught the sewing bug recently, too...)

Oh wow, the embroidered whites would be so wonderful as a comforter! Wow..that's all I have to say.

Delurking to say, um, I'd definitely be interested in the skirt?

Whenever I go to the art stores around, people ask if I go to KCAI (Kansas City Art Institute) and I always sigh and say, "No, I'm at UMKC."

I love the skirt prints, too. As an A-line, I would wear those in a heartbeat. Maybe we should do a skirt-swap? xox, J

You always have the lovliest fabrics!

Happy Spring!

Beautiful! It's all beautiful! Yay, spring!

I think the skirt is lovely and you should finish it for yourself! I have some of that STR colourway too but haven't dared cast it on in fear of the dreaded pooling... What pattern does your cobblestone county have in its future?
