In 2011, I found a little shop tucked away that sold Japanese knick knacks, old kimonos and beautiful scraps of fabric. I immediately went into salvage mode and started digging around like a treasure deprived tomb raider.
These are some fabrics I picked up to add to my stash. What I love about these is that not only are the prints beautiful, but some have textures on them too.
This one reminds me of arrowheads.. Oh but perhaps they are?
Love the combination of flora intertwined with geometric patterns.
I am hoping to make a hexagon quilt out of the scraps. This was the beginning…
Since it’s quite time consuming preparing the hexagons and hand sewing them, I took my time deciding how I wanted the design. Here’s to hoping it doesn’t become another one of my abandoned projects…
I also picked up this happy fellow, which I’ve been told is actually a Buddha. I’m not sure what type of wood he’s carved out of but it sure is weighty.
.. And not to forget, this feisty little one.
