Despite all evidence to the contrary, I’m aware that there’s more to life than quilting. Since summer is winding down I thought I’d feature some non quilting posts that I found amusing, awe inspiring, or informative.
I made derogatory remarks about selfies earlier this summer. As with any popular trend, it has become fertile ground for riffs. Francois Dourlen has developed humor from them. One of my favorites is below.
My summer road trip has made me susceptible to travel nostalgia, so I frittered away some time looking at postcards and photos from places along the fabled Route 66. Us geezers know it’s where to go to get your kicks.
If you haven’t yet discovered her work, let me suggest you look at some examples by Linda Kemshall. She and her daughter Laura wrote The Painted Quilt, an inspiring lesson in other ways to make quilts. Anyway, here’s Linda’s studio, which has become my touchstone for dream studios.
A few months ago I showed you art made from books. Now let me introduce you to Peter Gentenaar, a paper sculptor.
He does work for public spaces as well as some fashion shows. I was introduced to him by the Pink Pagoda Studio.
I know I mentioned a quilter, but I didn’t show her quilts. So this still qualifies as a non quilting post.
