...a little plan.....

Recovering a bit now....

...not quite so tired and zombied-out.

Spent some time looking through the photos I took, and, not surprisingly.....

...there are a lot of shots of sea and sky!

I tried to capture the sunset as often as I could....

...and as many passing islands as possible....

...as I had a little plan going on in my head.

I know most of you think of me as a stitcher, but in previous lives I have spent plenty of time spinning and weaving too.....

....and I've been experiencing "urges".....

...to get out a small loom and do "something".

Sea/skyscapes are simply ideal for this, and so I took LOADS of pictures to use.

I'd like to do about 20 or so....

...only small ones....

...about 2 inches x 5 inches....

...using an IKEA picture frame as a loom.

I may do some as small paper and fabric collages as well.......probably.....

...and even some punchneedle.

Here is some of my inspiration.....











I'll have a wonderful time digging to find all the threads/yarns/fabrics for this project....

....I may even have to resort to buying some at the show next week!! :-)

Don't expect any fast results though....

...I've got to fit this around all the other things on my "to do" list!

Happy days....

ps

...let's spare a thought though.....

....some of these photos were taken in the area that is now being searched for a missing plane.

239 souls....

...and more still grieving....

Urges happen for very good reasons!!

...one should always go with them
