Inspiration Abounds

I have been ruined in the last week - I have spent it tripping around the South Island, catching up with old friends, eating too much, laughing loudly and seeming to find inspiration at every turn. It's been wonderful - have a look...

Fantastic rock shapes in Kaikoura waiting to be materialise in a quilt

I know this man looks real but he is actually a sculpture by Ron Merck currently at the Christchurch Art Gallery - there to remind me to always wonder just what will be coming next in life
A fabulously memorable meal was had in this restaurant and as well as laughing so much I cried I couldn't help marveling at this wall - another quilt in the waiting

Clearly I have a "thing" about these colours and forms as there is clear repetition in my photos even though they were taken in vastly different locations

So just for a change here is the view I enjoyed on New Years Day - vibrant blue with the best of NZ summer - pohutukawa red

I have textile treasures to share too - but they will have to wait for the next post....
I hope the start to the new year has been as inspiring and vibrant for you as it has been for me!
