Creative spaces - a high fiber low word diet

March 18th, 2010

I catch myself being so dang wordy all the time - so I’m gonna give writing a post twitter style a shot. Plus it makes looking at the pics but not reading the words - a guilt free pleasure.  Like going straight for the wrapped birthday present and bypassing the card.

Saw this quilt at Oh Fransson and had to (sorta) make one RIGHT.   NOW.
High fiber low word diet

Moda “Holly Jolly” jelly roll, Darlene Zimmerman EZ Quilting Easy Dresden (at 5″) and 1½” Kaufman Kona Snow strips.
High fiber low word diet

Breeze.  Sunshine.  Oregon coast.  Thick green grass.
High fiber low word diet

Seams.  Pressing directions.  Piecing.  Sunlight.  Peek-a-boo.
High fiber low word diet

Outside.  Fresh air.  No rain.  No clouds.  No Gray.  Time to mow.
High fiber low word diet

Ice tea.  Comfy garden chair.  Computer.  Off.

More creative fun and creative places visit Kirsty for Creative Spaces Thursday (thanks Jenny!!).

  26. The fabulous Leslie Schmidt allegedly said:

    I saw and fell in love with that quilt, too, but there ends the similarity between you and me. I haven’t started it yet. And don’t tell me you matched your stripes! Thanks for the idea of the ruler. I’ll have to get me one. (I’m not only blog-less, but I don’t own a cellphone and know nothing of twittering.)

  27. The fabulous Bloom allegedly said:

    Simply. Stunning. Happy!

  28. The fabulous Pixie's Belle allegedly said:

    My boy has also decided to no longer use too many words with his blog so now it is purely photos, with a heading for the whole photo stream. It looks interesting and makes people ask themselves who, what, where, why, but not on the blog. Almost like they fear to disrupt the quiet imagery.
    As a contract, he loves twitter, posts there at least once a day every day. Me, I don’t get twitter.

  29. The fabulous Sandra allegedly said:

    Nicynice,love it because it gives a happy feeling just looking at it!

  30. The fabulous Shawn allegedly said:

    So pretty, love it and the sunshine, your ruler looks like fun too. Happy spring Monica!

    Hugs Janice

    I love it! I think I just found the pattern for my next baby quilt.

  33. The fabulous Robyn allegedly said:

    I can “feel” the colors you chose. They sooo match your description. I can smell the ocean and pine. I miss it. Damn your description! :)
    You are KaWick! I downloaded the Oh Fransson pattern when she posted it. Hmmmm…do you have some other secret?? Like Super Zombie Power??

  34. The fabulous Melissa C allegedly said:

    Love Cute WANT
    I need to find that ruler.

  35. The fabulous Susan allegedly said:

    I love this quilt. Awesome!

  36. The fabulous Jodi allegedly said:

    I am in love with that quilt! In love! And I am also IN LOVE with the weather we’ve been having! I plan on being out in it ALL day. Starting now. ;o) ooxx`jod

  37. The fabulous Kasi allegedly said:

    So bright and cheery! Those photos are beautiful and make me smile! I can’t believe that fabric is Christmas fabric. This can SO be your “Christmas in July” picnic blanket. You know…when you’re wishing people around you would just have that Christmasy spirit and you had lots of presents to open and sweet cookies to nibble on, but it’s too darn hot and sunny to even close your eyes and pretend? You can make some tree, wreath, snowman cookies…decorate them all bright and summer sassy (with sunglasses and a snow-bikini), then pack up some turkey or ham sandwiches and a summer squash side salad and head on out to that green grassy place and celebrate CHRISTMAS IN JULY! How fun for you!!!!!

  38. The fabulous Evelyn allegedly said:

    Love it! And I love your tweet style. :-)

  39. The fabulous Megan allegedly said:

    Seriously?!?! How did I LIVE for so long without coming upon your site? AND you’re right here in Oregon! I sure hope you have room for a Portland groupie.

    Oh, and the quilt? Yeah. Want one. Now, please.

  40. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    Ooooh, cute new quilt top Ms. Monica! Love the pics but love the words too — bring ‘em back LOL!

  41. The fabulous V and Co. allegedly said:

    vchristenson@happy zombie “luv it” must get one too. will send you address so you can make me 1.ttfn

  42. The fabulous amylouwho allegedly said:

    I definitely think we have the same taste in color. I love how bright and fresh this is!

  43. The fabulous Mom Wald allegedly said:

    Well, well, you have been busy. A new fabric line, and a new quilt top, what a fabulous way to start spring!

  44. The fabulous Dandelion Quilts allegedly said:

    I love your variation on that quilt…wonderful. :)

  45. The fabulous KathiD allegedly said:

    That looks so luscious! Being temporarily away from my sewing palace makes me long for it all the more!

  46. The fabulous Roseann allegedly said:

    I have that easy dresden … use it too … but never in my life thought to make a quilt like that with it!! No wonder you’re a super star.

  47. The fabulous Etta allegedly said:

    That’s so cute! I really love the bright colors. My house has been turned upside down while we remodel our bathroom, so I haven’t been in my sewing room much :(

  48. The fabulous Valerie in CS allegedly said:

    Loved the New Wave at first sight — and I’m really liking your New Wave-ish take!

  49. The fabulous Paula Prass allegedly said:

    It’s an art piece. I love the sun’s shadows. Beautiful.

  50. The fabulous nanette allegedly said:

    The style is great. I have yet to get back on twitter since my hacking incident. I gotta get on that. Love the quilt. The pattern is great.

  51. The fabulous Sharon allegedly said:

  54. The fabulous Lori Holt allegedly said:

    I love the quilt Monica…it’s breathtaking flying in the breeze outside…it looks like a kite and the blocks look like kite tails!
    Oh HAPPY spring happy zombie!

  55. The fabulous Sweet Cottage Dreams allegedly said:

    I don’t think you need to mow the grass being as NONE grows under YOUR feet!

  56. The fabulous AnyoneCanQuilt allegedly said:

  59. The fabulous auntiepami allegedly said:

    Monica, I have two of these bad boys in my stash, soon to be one! I love this. You know, I’m surprised your fabric dots are not little washing machines. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

  60. The fabulous Julie allegedly said:

    I have the ruler…definitely want to make this quilt too! It is lovely, waving in the wind!

  61. The fabulous Sivje Parish allegedly said:

    Oh I love it!
    And I am guilty of being far too wordy. I am not sure I could even blog twitter style, but it may be fun to try.
    Your quilt is so pretty!

  62. The fabulous Natalia allegedly said:

    I have to tell you that I just read your comment over at MBS and you make me laugh! You are more than welcome to move into my sewing room with me, my husband, my dog and my daughter and sometimes my 11 yr old neighbor! :) But since it’s freezing cold here in Utah you probably don’t want to! Maybe I can just move in with you!! :)

  63. The fabulous nadine woodraksa allegedly said:

    I love it!! You make me smile, are you going to market? Let me know about the Spring thing!
    Your pal from Rainier:)

  64. The fabulous KathyDB allegedly said:

    So when did you have such nice sun? We are freezing up here in Seattle. Or was that the same nice day that we had a couple of weeks ago. Love the quilt!

    At least we can be indoors sewing, guilt free.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
