So, for years, I have been cutting articles out of various magazines, and filing them away in plastic sleeves in big binders, which take up a great deal of space...also, they are heavy...so, I am compartmentalizing....I have decided to scan my favorites...I have "sewing, crafts, art, kitchens, window treatments, dining rooms, bedrooms, gardens, the whole gamut, all taking up a great deal of space...I have decided to scan my favorites and share them with you...also, they are then on my computer..which I better back up..don't you think?
I am also writing two novels, and a children's book, which is taking a great deal of my time..along with three days a week of water aerobics, and two days a week of power walking...so, I am going to share with you what I've taken from the notebooks, and hoping that you won't think I'm cheating here...but, I LOVE so much of it.
The first thing I got from my "Fabrics inspiration" notebooks were these wonderful articles from "Marie Claire Idees" from years ago...I had forgotten all about them...now, I will share them with you, and perhaps, getting the "creative juices" flowing again as far as sewing...
Remember, you can double-click on the images, and they will be enlarged...enjoy!!!
I do so enjoy taking bits of fabrics (I save everything, especially, scraps of velvet, silks, moires, beads, ribbons,) and making something from them...I am a "she who dies with the most fabric (scraps and all), wins..
