January 31, And on to the sky

As I work on a new course on design I am thinking alot about this big rug that I have had made and how it relates to my other work that I am creating for the course. Preparing courses is an important part of my work overall. I don't want to just inspire people to create rugs. I want to inspire them to create rugs with their own voice. Rugs that tell their story and speak their truths. This is so important to me.

I think when we can find ourselves in a rug you know. That we can learn so much about ourselves just from making, from using our work to tell a story, or express an idea. It takes time and commitment but it is so worth it. You know I have a desire to put another ig rug on the frame right after I finish this one. I wonder will I still feel that way when this one is off the frame?

I want to show you some little tips here on the Pom members site. Right now I am crazy about flower pots. These are very simple designs I am doing right now but it is their simplicity that is difficult to carry off. For this orange pot I used sexy jersey and highlighted it with rust slub. I wanted a clean looking pot with not too much colour . The pot cannot compete with the flowers in these rugs. The pot has a very simple shape. Lean and long, and only two colours mixed together.

Playful is best
