Let´s get foggy...

Here´s a another one of those little projects
for which I more or less just grabbed the nearest
scraps (to get them out of the way, and to
avoid the dustcough and headache from searching
around among the crates and boxes in the other
room - in fact, I find it liberating to just
use what´s at hand, to just make do, and I quite
often are more satisfied with the results...)
- a grey logcabin block...













... with which, inspired by this and this, and by this
picture from a magazine...













... I did this...













The writing says: mit nebelhafter Klarheit (with
foglike clarity)...













After the longest period of grey (NO, I didn´t ask for
it...) days since 1964, there was a bit of sunshine
this week - but now new snow...














"It is not the clear-sighted who rule the world.
Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed,
warm fog."

(Joseph Conrad)


Last, but not least:
I´m enjoying the comments on the hearts give-away
a lot - it´s like being allowed to glimpse into
peoples homes and hearts for a moment - thank you...!

I love the little handstitched detail in the peacock inspired strip, perfect foil for those soft and foggy greys.

Lovely...

I hope that's true about the fog...I figure I lost about three hours today looking for things that I picked up and put down. Compensated for by fitful flashes of brilliance?

Love the silver lining.

Greys are irresistible. And you've made the whole piece so tactile with the variations in fabric, and especially the embroidered areas and details. Beautiful.

gray is full of mystery and questions, but also peace... Love your block and your hearts. :)

Fun surprise to see that ornate bit thrown in--a bit of the peacock.

Thanks... better a clear heart + foggy head than the other way round, eh...?
