out of chaos

What my brain looks like, on the wall.  I look at other artists' inspiration boards and realize that most take down what they had up last, and assemble new things to look at.  I layer.  The first things were pinned here 10 years ago when we built my shop.  I want to see at a glance if I still care about the same things as I used to, and if I'm still on track.

Out of this scramble emerges some pretty orderly weaving, with organized color, and balanced designs.

I think your board is wonderful!!! of course you know and remember every pieces but not every day.
So inspired
...and you produce exactly the same as your board - a beautiful scarf. God luck / Meta

I totally understand your layering plan. My design wall is layered with projects, and lots of things I don't want to lose:-)

Thanks for the cheers for New Scarf! I really appreciate the compliments.

We are who we are. "Plan" elevates my work style. I call it habit. I'd love to see your project layers, Lynn

I avoided rosepath for so long, but now I find myself weaving it more and more. The cinnamon and teal were what I really loved here. I'm glad you like the pattern
