Giveaway winner and a little inspiration

 Thanks again to all who participated in today's giveaway. The lucky number today is  14.  Liz you are the owner of 1 yard of purple wool! Kindly email me your address to maria@starrugcompany.com, I'll get the wool right out to you.

Now to explain the pictures. I was walking through an elementary school recently and these wonderful artistic chalk painted leaves caught my eye.




Didn't the children do a great job capturing the beauty of a leaves?

Don't you wonder what the art assignment was?


 Normally I think of leaves as orange, yellow or red colored but these works of art certainly opened my mind to see leaves differently....in a more abstract colorful way.


One of my future projects and challenges will be to use these works of art as inspiration in a design.

So cool. They would be great models for some abstract rugs. My daughter taught jr. high art and the students would come up with some very original works of art. I have a watercolor painting on my refrigerator right now that Charlie, my three yr. old Grandson made for me and it is so pretty that I am seriously thinking of making a small rug using it as the pattern. Such unbridled talent children have.
