I am still getting my mind around the fact that I don't have to do home schooling anymore. My time is mostly mine. What a novel thought! I can visit friends, who I haven't seen for ages or have only seen them just quickly in passing. Now I have time to spend a whole day with them. I can call in on my other children for lunch or dinner, which I did this week. I loved it. And over the last three years so much has happened that I have fallen behind. There are new artists and ideas to explore along with lots of new shops and venues I haven't seen. How exciting.
Now you probably know this textile artists work but it is new to me. Paula Kavarik. She uses her sewing machine like a drawing pencil and her drawings are a bit like Shaun Tan, almost "train of thought" type drawing. (A bit like the pencil drawings Shaun has inside the covers of some of his books.)
The music is a bit circus soleil.
There is a nice little tour of her studio.
And her video of 2019 quilts is great.
And if you have time this interview is worth watching. (She didn't start quilting until she retired!)
This makes for pleasant viewing and I am so inspired that I have just purchased her book.
