Welcome. Spring. 2012.


vintage inspiration

After cleaning up such a mess that was the holiday season, including 500 plus catalogs announcing their 60%, 70%, and 80% off sales (of which I participated in none (See simplify posts)).  I hestiated and stopped to look at a couple.  Two of my favorite, Sundance and Garnet Hill.  Here's a little of what I found.
A collection of Sundance quilts.  Beautiful soft, endearing prints.

I saw an afghan in Garnet Hill.  Looked to be a very simple stripe, but turned out to be a stripey-bobble type throw.  Pity they were charging less than $100 for it.  I only have a photo scrap torn from the catalog, but I took those colors and have started a series of vintage afghans.  I love the look of old quilts and things found around old cabins and so what I hope to do is create pieces that are inspired by those simpler things and days when all you had to worry about was having enough food and firewood.
