Inspiration #2

the second color scheme that inspired me in Vancouver

is very bright with a hint to Fall season

at least that is what these colors look like to my eyes

for those of you who are into bunting ~ this might be an inspiring picture on the left

on the right colorful fruit at the pretty and delicious Public Market on Granville Island

the ever pretty skyline of North Vancouver

and now what to do with these pretty but very small skeins of silk?

several ideas crossed my mind, from crochet flowers to embroidery... what are your thoughts?


besides these color matches, another very inspiring event happened today

I was lucky to meet Koralee from Bluebird Notes!

I was all excited and we had the greatest time together, she is such an inspiring and lovely lady

thank you Koralee for this wonderful opportunity, you are the sweetest thing

~ a happy and inspiring weekend to all of you ~

  6. Gorgeous colours and wonderful photos; I'm so enjoying your trips around the place. I think you should make something with your silk just for you. Maybe embellish some clothing or make a small wrist cuff? Whatever you decide, I'm sure anything you come up with will be fantastic.
