Quiet Sunday

Actually, I've been working obsessively on this thing:

It's not where I want it yet, but it's come a long way, and I'm not ashamed to show it. I still want to add more detail to the background and work on the circular shapes so that they're less blocky. This is actually lots of fun. I made A LOT of blocks and then began to move them around to approximate the design I had in mind. It's interesting to see how a block that seemed like it would never work can turn out to be just the right thing for another area--sort of like working a jigsaw. But I still had to make some blocks specifically for a particular place. You can click on it to see better.

I did take a break long enough to choose fabrics for Take It Further Challenge:

The light fabric is more peach and less pink than it looks in the picture. I didn't try to keep the same mid value slightly grayed tones because I don't particularly like them. Browsing around to see what other people are doing made me think better of them however. But these fabrics should work for me.

How are you making those abstract blocks?

I love how you are interacting with the blocks and letting them tell you where they should be!

Even when we follow the palette Sharon gives, there is still lots of wiggle room. Your colors are zippier, but still in range.
The palette, like the theme, is a jumping off point, IMHO.

I'm liking that abstract piece.
