There's a summer storm brewing outside. It's rumbling in fits and starts like an old car trying to get up a rough hill. The ride down the other side is going to be fast and wild. Love these mercurial weather days in any season.
Ran across my stash of woaded linens from my trip to France a few years ago. Finding something to do with them has had me kind of stumped. But then I saw an old teacup sitting on the shelf and a solitary spool of white thread. I didn't have a lot of time and decided to stitch a quick silhouette of the cup. More than once I've struggled to imitate blue and white imagery from dishes. It's hard. Easier to riff on it and do what I could to capture the feeling. For a 45 minute challenge, it went pretty well. Then I did another. I have a lot of blue and white dishes.
After a long dry spell creatively, it feels like that old car coming up to the top of the hill. The ride down might be crazy fun. Just need to keep my foot off the brakes.
