A Case of Discombobulation

I`m feeling discombobulated.  I have hardly sewn the last 10 days and so have very little to share with you.  I`m feeling out of sorts in a way I can`t really describe.  So I shall just share with you a taste of what`s been going on around here.

It`s really quite warm at the moment and so there has been quite a lot of this...


...walks in the souqs where sunglasses wait in the shade...


...a trip to a vegan restaurant with sun-kissed balconies...


...a realisation that I shouldn`t have thrown away that broken plate...


...pumpkin adorned staircases...


...and weird stingy spider`s web affairs outside the Koutoubia mosque...



I made this Kaffe Fasset selvedge pouch for Mother`s Day...


...and the ends are improving...


...and lastly, a huge huge thank you to my lovely bloggy friend Helen who sent me these Amy Butler Soul Blossoms FQs!  A few weeks ago Helen was looking for suggestions for quilting retreats and said that she would send a `small something` to the person who suggested the retreat she chose. I was the first to suggest the FQ Retreat and she took me up on it!  Thank you Helen - you are too generous! I love Amy Butler so so much and I can`t wait to meet you in June!


We are half way through the My Modern Muse series and I`m loving all the interviews and hope you are too.  I still have some amazing ones coming up so thank you to everyone who has joined in.

Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend!

Those pink walls are incredible, but I also like the cobwebs outside the mosque. You live in such an interesting town!

Leanne said...

You live in such a colourful place. I hope you feel better soon.

So nice to see some of your incredible photography again, as much as I love your incredible sewing too. Your zip ends look pretty perfect to me! And what on earth ARE those stringy things?!!

Leanne said...

Love all this photos, such interesting & colourful places, love the colours in the vegan restaurant & the pumpkins up the stairs.

Loving all the fab photos, except the strange cobwebby things because they have me imagining giant spidery things to make them, which makes my skin crawl... Anywho, the zippy ends look fab, glad you're having fun with your mum

I can think of worse places to be discombobulated in! Hope you get your mojo back soon.

It all looks so wonderful, I can see why all your quilts are bright and pink and colourful; if I was inspired by my surroundings right now, there would be way too much brown!

Ok, you must have swapped sons, because Zaki has grown up so much since the Christmas photos. Sounds like yo are having a relaxing time with your mom. I hope nothing else is going on...Those zipper ends are looking so professional!

Beautiful images! Looks like you are storing up plenty of inspiration to use when it is ready to come out. :) I hope you had a great weekend!

Your environment is so colorful and interesting! Love the photos of your son ♥. Sewing for you must be like art for me - if I'm not creating art, I definitely feel something missing!
