Nothing inspires me more than the treasures from Africa, South America and the Pacific Islands. Some of these were from sections of the Met, others from The Natural History Museum in NYC.
I always collect interesting faces and figures:
And my heart skips every time I see intricate detail work as on this neckpiece.
I filled up my journal on my trip, but most pages are quicky collage bits of things I want to remember.
Thanks to a three hour delay in Chicago, I was able to finish all the little pillows I took along for stitching on the plane. They will probably be turned into wall hangings like these. These little pillows are the perfect traveling project because they are all self-contained, no little stray bits of fabric to deal with-- a needle, thread, scissors and I'm ready to go.
