personal trend tracking via flickr faves

garlands

i detected the other day while going through my flickr faves, a little obsession with garlands and things garland-y. clicking on the pic above will take you to my photostream where you can find the links to the good folks behind these beauties.

and here's the one i made with a bit of bamboo yarn and some leftover squares from my tanya whelan dolce quilt (which reminds me, i should be working on the binding for that).


oh, and i also discovered that i have a thing about thread:

a thing about thread

the last four pics in the mosaic above are my own, so i won't post them separately. have you looked at your flickr faves lately? i'll betcha anything there's a theme (or themes). one more from me, plain spoken quilts:

quilts and fabrics in solids

I feel another-"are you going to make these and sell on Etsy?" :)

I just realized I was sighing out loud as I looked at this post. It was a feast for my eyes.

Thank you!

What an interesting idea. I just checked my flickr faves too, and they're mostly trees, squares and wavy lines.

I love the scissors in the first one... some amazing colours throughout :0)

What a great idea -- too often, we're too myopic to see trends in our lives and our preferences. This is a great way to step back and see the big picture (or lots of little ones).
