Stitched in Color Mosaic Contest

Stitched in Color is one of my very favorite blogs.  Rachel has such a wonderful voice and the blend of work and family she shares in her space makes it a wonderful online haven for creativity and just general living.  She periodically hosts themed mosaic contests, and while I rarely enter, I always enjoy looking through what others have put together.

However this time, the theme was "Dreaming at Dusk" and the timing just seemed right.  Some of you may know I've taken up a new hobby this summer, crewing for my friend who races sailboats here locally on Lake Hefner.  It's been really a blast, but last night was, unexpectedly, the last night of the season.  I snapped this photo as I walked off the dock, and it seemed like the perfect dreamy, dusky, inspiration for Rachel's mosaic contest.

The mosaic contest is kindly sponsored by Lark Cottons,  who had a really lovely selection except for a dearth of periwinkles and greyed out purples.  Greyed out colors are usually harder to find anyway, but I think they can really add depth to fiber art, so hopefully we'll see more of them.  I had a lot of fun browsing through all the fabrics though to find the ones for my mosaic!

Thanks Rachel for hosting this fun contest!
