The first idea has to do with eyes - specifically my own myopic eyesight and how important seeing the details is to me. BTW, two of the eye strips are from famous personalities. Can you name them?
The second idea is the pins and needles that I use in my sewing, quilting, and fiber art. The pins often are the starting point in a design and the small stitches with needle and thread lead - one by one - to completed projects.
A third idea came this weekend while DH and I were on a short road trip and has to do with maps! As the "official navigator" I am always in trouble for (1) misreading a map and/or (2) not seeing a crucial road sign. These are definitely small details that are emblematic of something larger.
Since I cannot quite choose - yet - I have started working on the color concept for now. I was able to find pretty good color matches in my stash, so no shopping needed to get this done. Always nice. I'm working on a quilt block. There's a little bit of a story that goes with it and I will tell you about it when the block is finished. Soon.
