Little inspiration

It's been a gray and stormy week here up north. Yesterday was an exception; the skyline was pretty with the string of sunlight. It gave me a chance to take some pictures and many nice things came to my mind.

Once I saw the glass jar with buttons in my studio I immediately got memories from childhood; how wonderful it was to find such treasures from Mom's sewing supply kit. I loved to explore buttons and chose my favorites thinking they're little gems.

As a result of this inspiration I made a small series of fancy pouches. I'd like to call them my little gems. Some pouches are already in my shop ...


Tämä viikko on ollut harmaa ja myrskyinen. Eilinen oli poikkeus, taivaanrannasta pilkotti kaunis valo. Sen ansiosta sain tilaisuuden kuvata hieman ja monia mukavia asioita tuli mieleeni.

Huomasin työhuoneessani lasipurkin jossa oli nappeja. Ne toivat mieleeni lapsuusajan muistoja. Muistin kuinka nappipurkin löytäminen äidin ompelutarvikkeiden joukosta tuntui kuin olisi löytänyt aarteen, napit olivat kuin pieniä jalokiviä.

Tämän inspiraation tuloksena tein muutamia juhlavia pussukoita, kuin pieniä jalokiviä. Niitä on jo muutamia saatavilla kaupastani.
