Vacation Inspiration

The Hydrangeas were AMAZING, BREATHTAKING, HEAVENLY, EVERY COLOR – EVERY WHERE.  They said all the rain they had this spring contributed.  The BEST part of vacation – next to visiting my cousin! Her hubby is a scallop fisherman – now THAT was interesting! I even made myself try Steamers and Clams.  Once is enough…thank you!

This guy was a dichotomy in eras – an Indian from when settlers first arrived, and dressed as such – in a power chair.  Good for him!  Working – sharing – celebrating his heritage.  Each character at Plimoth Village IS and STAYS in character!  Really educational.

And if you think there is such a think as ‘junk’… think again.  On the island of Nantucket in one of the gallery windows, we saw this!  I wish I had written down amazing artist – but alas, no.   See what this artist transformed stuff like this into!  Taking a photo let me ‘see’ it in from a different vantage point – a trick I’m finding useful in wearable art garment design – take a photo, then look at the photo for a different ‘view’ that is VERY revealing. Also – on Nantucket – I FINALLY found a fabric store!   Here is what I added to my ‘Library’ of fabrics… ‘Visual Resource Center’ a customer once cleverly called her stash!

Anyway – on brown, cut up, pieces, border – can’t WAIT to get started. SEW… Comment to let me know what YOU have found on your travels to add to your stash or inspire you!
