Top of my list of To-Dos when I return home in a few days is a photo session for the aprons I've just completed. I've been doing them on and off over the past couple of months in between the Verity Hope Dresses etc (the next thing I must get to re-stocking!!).
My favourite projects are those with no pre-planning. I love just starting with either a colour or in the case of these aprons....a shape. When I cut the dresses and other aprons out I'm left with so many interesting shaped pieces of fabric which are ideal for pockets, parts of a frill or a waistband etc.
I love random colours which some how find a way to blend in with the next. I find if I give too much thought to the way something is going to look before I've even started it some how takes the excitement out of the project. I thrive on the unknown....and seeing something develop in front of me.
Maybe it's because you use a different part of the mind when it's allowed to roam free. If I'd sat and thought about the colour combos too much I probably would have found every reason not to put the colour peach against a deep red for example, or a deep peacock green with pale turquoise but when I just let my higher mind take over without judgment or 'buts' THAT'S when I know it truly comes from me.
These aprons will be available very shortly...
