I’m not sure how or why I missed so many months of Craft-spirations. :( It’s not because I haven’t been inspired lately, but more like time is moving way too fast. So I’m putting “pen to paper” and getting my inspiration up on the blog. This month my inspiration comes from summer. Some comes from traveling, and some have just been on my mind for months.
A recent trip to the Big Island inspired me to try my hand at Hawaiian quilting. It’s a little daunting, but I will start small. Check out the intricacies of this quilt from Welsh Quilts.
The summer heat reminds me of a trip to my boyfriend’s midwest hometown a few summers back. The trip was full of street dances, rodeos, and a whole lot of country! And what goes with country but fringe. Not cheesy fringe…but CLASSY fringe, just as beautiful as this fringe necklace by ManoBello.
The summer colors remind me of bold patterns from the 60’s, like this amazing fabric from the mad4modvintage Etsy shop. Plus it kind of reminds me of this nylon shirt my Mom used to have when I was a kid. It was very disco-esque. :)
Needlework and embroidery by Karen Barbé. Her work is phenomenal!! Just looking at this makes me inspired. I’m not sure if I could be so talented, but I’ve been wanting to try embroidery for awhile now.
Hope these inspire your crafting as they do mine!
