Do you ever get stuck in a rut of little to no inspiration? Doing orders, or sewing for other people - can become dull and methodical. Sometimes I need a release - something that's inspiring to me and something that makes me smile just because... it makes me smile. Something that has no purpose other than to make you smile when you look at it.
Rain is my everyday inspiration. I feel freedom in the rain. It's like the sky holds back all its emotions until it just can't handle them and then it bursts. It's a release. I feel its freedom when it falls.
Thus, this mini was born. It celebrates the rain. It displays the color and joy I personally feel when the sky falls. It measures up at 19"x15", and will be adorning my gray, gray cubicle at work come Monday morning. It has no real purpose other than to make me smile.
The girl.. well, she feels the freedom I feel. Umbrella down, face to the sky - she comes alive and bursts with color and a contented happiness as the rain comes down on her. She makes me smile.
I'm linking her up to the Modern Mini Challenge at Ellison Lane Quilts. Maybe she can make someone else smile. :)
