I have a confession. I'm a bit of a Pinterest junkie. Now, I'd love to tell you that I use Pinterest to help research projects and collect inspirational images - which I do - buttttttttt - its way more that. I love Pinterest as a place to play with pretty pictures. Yes, I was one of those little girls that liked to cut out pictures from magazines and then glue them all back together as "collages". And now Pinterest
lets my adult myself do that - virtually.
Still that said, I do use it for research and its proven quite handy. This weekend, I finally started a board where I can pin images for Elizabeth Barton's Master Class. If this month is any indication, I'll going to have to do a lot of research for class and its time I get organized. I started with pinning images of slab rocks.
Slab rocks are so interesting - the veins create so much texture - just begging to be replicated onto fabric with thread. So who am I to argue with a rock? I all of Sunday quilting up my slab rocks for January's assignment. At first I had no idea really what I was doing so that's where Pinterest came to the rescue. Its amazing how quick and easily you can find just the right images you need to get yourself rolling.
Anyways, the quilt is coming along nicely and hopefully - fingers crossed! - I'll finish by the 31st deadline.! Thank God this isn't a month with only 30 days. (Oh my, what am I going to do in Feburary?)
