Transitioning into Spring

Hand-dyed Fabrics

Years ago, at this time of the year, our neighbor would take his snow shovel into his north-facing (slower to melt) front yard and start spreading out the snow to make it melt faster.  It can be hard to deal with snow and cold day after day at this time of the year. On a recent trip “up north,” the sky and the ground were the same color.  I noticed beauty in the pattern of the branches against the snow and in how the fence outlined the rolling hills. But . . . sometimes monochromatic gets old! Here was my solution last weekend, when I hand-dyed fabrics to create a small art quilt inspired by one of my little paintings. I will keep you posted. How do you fill your life with color?


  1. Those colors are wonderful! Spring must be right around the corner. For me, if I need some color in my life, out come the paints and I can create whatever scene I want!

  2. Lovely thoughts. Love your hand-died fabrics. These days I find myself on Pinterest more often. I love all the beautiful images and colours. That has been mynfose of colours. I am also very much looking forward to spring.

  3. I agree that color is so important. I am like a magpie and like bright shiny things. Pinterest is a fun way to enjoy color and it’s free. I also accumulate material that I haven’t had time to sew. I collect beads that I do make into jewelry. Thanks for the beautiful photographs–the white-out and the colors.

  4. These are just beautiful. I love how many layers there are of you in the quilts you create. They are so special.
