inspiration abounds

I have always loved pattern and color, especially on fabric. It begs to be pinned and stitched and pressed.
There is a scene in the Sound of Music that makes me laugh with self recognition. Fabric deprived Maria seizes her bedroom curtains. Her vision has suddenly cleared and she sees them for what they really are; Yards and yards of fabric for the cutting.
I've been mentally cutting holes in curtains and dresses and shirts of complete strangers for years. Usually, the unsuspecting soul is sitting in front of me at some event and I am comforting my bored self with thoughts creative. Inspiration abounds.
