eye candy yum yum

what feeds our souls? what feeds your soul? i know that colour feeds my soul and fuels my creativity...i absolutely love a "good mess of colour"...we are surrounded by colour...although colour is used less  in the northern hemisphere then in the southern hemisphere...i love travel to the tropics...the houses, the clothes, the art...colour colour colour...i love to be surrounded by colour...one of my favourite places to hang out is my friend Darlene Wiebe's longarm quilting studio...


she always has a good mess of colour in the studio...sometimes it is quilts but there are always the seemingly endless "eye candy" her stock of thread supplies



 
 oh so much thread everywhere


 and then there are quilts with threads being auditioned...more colour yum yum


and then there are the her quilt blocks hanging on her design wall...


“A man who works with his hands is a laborer;

 a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; 

but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.”

on this grey and snowy day, that hit of colour is just what I needed - I love colour, too, and would love to have that wall of thread - yum!

This really is eye candy - both the quilt and all that thread. I am drooling!

Looks like you are preparing for more snow, lots of quilting in mind? Yes, for sure lots of eye candy for quilters!
Loving your quilt blocks!
