Imagine my joy opening my mail to this!
Martha, you have done it again: The cover is beautifully simple with paper that is slick yet soft and a raised edge on the quilt so you can feel the binding...love that. You would never imagine the amount of beauty contained within such a portable size.
The THIRTEEN WAYS OF LOOKING AT A BLACKBIRD exhibit was not what I expected. Not being a big bird fan myself (although I do love Big Bird:), I was pleasantly surprised by all the variations on a theme and how the artists brought themselves to it. The lesson being that even when you aren't excited about a subject matter, there is still appreciation for the process to be had if you open yourself up to it.
Annemieke Mein's nature work is exquisite in spite of looking at bugs.
Katherine K. Allen's process really intrigues and excites me. In my mind I would love this process but reality is that I am too weird about getting dirty to be out collecting nature:)
Dottie Moore- First of all, I so love and admire the beauty of trees, and in Dottie's skillful hands their textural beauty is mesmerizing.
Nancy G Cook- I have followed Nancy's work for a few years now and am always in awe of the seemingly simple beauty she brings to cloth.
Thank you again, Martha, for a must have for any library especially anyone enthralled with the wonder of nature. Thank you artists for your continued push for excellence.
