nature in textile or textile in nature?

Do you find nature in textiles?

Or do you find textiles in nature?

I have always been drawn to nature and textiles and today I found some similarities between the two:

Moss reminds me of velvet (or does velvet remind me of the moss?)

Was fringe inspired by young pine seedlings?

Does anyone else look up through the branches in the winter and think of lace?

Do the berries in the cedar and holly trees remind you of beads?

red and blue beads today……

Where do you find your inspiration?  I find mine in nature……………..
