Beautiful Designs in Everyday Life

 Good morning,

I get inspiration for color and design for needlework in the most ordinary places.  Today's images are from a trip through the car wash.  Blues and whites are some of my favorites.

Add a few stripes...

...and more shades of blue...

...add icy texture...

...and perhaps some red for a patriotic piece.

Ah, back to reality.  :)

It is fun, isn't it, to look at ordinary things in different ways.

Happy Fall!

I love going through the car wash, too! I add on a "hot wax" part just to see the incredible colors! Blue and white are a gorgeous combo for any season, especially winter and summer.

The 3rd and 5th would make beautiful fabric...or yarns for that matter.
