January's theme colors are blue and white.
First step for me is to set up an inspiration corner. I've gathered some objects together, finding some wonderful shades of blue to set against snowy or pearly white.
I guess it's a sewing or textiles corner. Don't remember where I got these French bobbins.
But I remember well the garage sale where I found this little homespun, homemade doll coat. Two sisters run a sale from their garage twice a year and when I see their sign, a block from the library, I get so excited. I know I'll find some treasures there. Sigh. In the midst of the longest month of winter I really miss my favorite garage sales.
Onward to step two: Next for me will be doing some projects inspired by the blue and white theme. I sewed this batik bag last summer. The blues are so saturated -- just wonderful! Like living in the ocean.
And in this long winter month, it's also good to be inspired by the promise of spring.
Blue + White.
