A bit of inspiration...

I am so very smitten with the illustrations of Holly Hobbie and Julia Denos! And also with the new chalk pastels and tubes of Holbein watercolors that I bought over the weekend. I took this photo of yarn in Peru... such great colors! (And they're all made using natural dyes). The bowl at the top of the photo is full of little beetles that are used to make red dye.


  1. hehehe, I bought Just Being Audrey, too!! And I am a huge fan of Holly Hobbie!!!

    the other funny coincidence, is I just started using the Holbein watercolors... they are so bright and don't stink and they just... I love them... :)

    Nice to see we have muchos in common!!

  2. I love Holbein too! Julia Denos is just amazing!
