Adding The Unexpected.....

Adding an unexpected something is not without some risk. It can be the missing element that gives your work life, or the distinct......what was I thinking??  What causes us to throw something unexpected, into the middle of a perfectly good quilt, anyway ?

Sometimes something, as simple, as taking a walk can effect what I'm working on. After my walk I went straight to work and added the unexpected green to my quilt. I quickly took some shots and put them on the computer. I had completely forgotten about these pictures I had taken, while walking. 

 As I look at them, I can see the influencing effect my walk is having on me. I'm still trying to decide if this is a good thing or not. I still might wake up tomorrow and say "WHAT WAS I THINKING?".


  1. I love the fact that your subconscious went to work for you. I'm always surprised when that happens. Love work, as always!

  2. (ok that should say *lovely* work!!)

  3. i can definitely see the inspiration. a very interesting piece. i like it.

  4. I love how share your inspirations which in turn inspires me. And I love what you are doing with this "old" piece. It will no doubt be fabulous, just like everything else that you do!

  5. That`s so interesting how you were subconsciously inspired by your walk, and no surprise that I absolutely love your quilt!

  6. Mmmm, yes, really like the unexpected green. Makes your piece dance!

  7. I was just telling my husband this morning that lime green goes with anything. This was in response to his comment about my wearing a pink and brown plaid scarf with a lime green top. I love it when I am surprised with the unexpected. Beautiful.
