Simple designs..... The shaker way!

Good morning to you all

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 

Whilst relaxing over the weekend I had to run and get my design book.  I thought of a design based I suppose on Shaker art.  Their art was always simple but stunning and that burst through in all aspects of their life.

They made what they needed and to sell so that they could buy what they could not make.

When I was in America and visited the Canterbury shaker village ( somewhere I love to go) I was looking at some of the art work that they produced plus pictures of quilts and of course their sewing room....... Ahhhhh to be back!

Anyway I have decided to to some pieces based on their simple designs and I am very excited about it......

So whatever you are doing today have a great day.

Do everything seasoned with love.
