Ayer andaba sacando fotos de Mantas y de como colocarlas en el sofá (fue divertido, me sentía decoradora!) y en una foto utilice uno de mis libros favoritos “El encanto de la vida simple” de Sarah Ban Breathnach. . Quiero compartircelos. . Ella escribe que es un dietario para vivir en plenitud los pequeños placeres de la vida y yo lo atestiguo! . No se necesita de mucho dinero, de miles de terapias, de super viajes de lujo... lo que tienes allí cerquita de ti te puede hacer valorar la vida. Ellos te pueden hacer “millonaria” de emociones y sensaciones. . ¡Con ella aprendí a meditar de una manera distinta! . Amo este libro pero cuéntame...¿qué libro te hace sentir contenta? . . #artforyourwalls #stichbystich#quiltmaker#hazloqueamas #emprendeamigas#quiltmaker
At the Samuel Goldwyn Theater for the 30th anniversary screening of the restored Oscar winning documentary, Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt in partnership with Outfest , with small selections from the enormous quilt on exhibit and a chat with the directors and producers. - The importance of the Names project / AIDS Memorial Quilt cannot be overstated. During the worst years it helped tens of thousands, incl. me, to begin processing and dealing with the devastation all around us. In a world that acted indifferent to a severely stigmatized disease, it was hard for many to simply find people to talk to. Creating a panel for the Names Project could be cathartic. And naturally it also created more awareness on a very human scale, it is hard to ignore such a gigantic monument covering the grounds from the Lincoln Monument to the Capitol Building on our National Mall - last time it was laid out in its entirety was in 1996, since then it has simply grown too big!!! Incidentally this weekend also marked 34 years since Søren was taken and despite the many years, I still miss him. His quilt panel was originally exhibited at NYU and Columbia University as well as the NY Pride Parade in 1990, since being assembled into the full memorial it has been on the Mall in Washington DC twice. I am extremely thankful to The Academy for restoring this film and the Quilt headquarters in Atlanta for preserving the Quilt - it is the most beautiful memorial to the so way too many of our loved ones who were taken by a disease still very much amongst us. I know I miss too many. The Quilt may not completely heal our wounds and scars, but it does soothe us beautifully. #actor#performer#quiltmaker#film#movies#tv#stage#theatre#casting#aidsmemorialquilt#namesproject#outfest#thequilt#lgbtq#newyorkcity#washingtondc#losangeles#hollywood#beverlyhills#commonthreads @theacademy @outfest @aidsmemorialquilt @birgitte.r.olsson @claushenningnielsen @sarahrolsson @sorenrolsson
I'm a Winter gal, through and through, but even I miss the ☀️ and light and warmth of Summer when we're in the thick of the chilly season 🥶 Maybe that's why these colours spoke to me when I was playing in my fabric stash...?⠀ ⠀ Or maybe I was craving liquorice allsorts. You'll never know. ⠀ ⠀ Working on some more #leilaniquilt goodness that will be photographed this week - can’t wait to show you this combo!
Here are 6 of my 20 Meadowland blocks YAY!! 💕💖 You should totally swipe👉 to see all the fabulous fun colorful fabrics...🥰🥰 This pattern is great and I now have 8 blocks complete! 😁 These are big ol' 16" blocks so it grows pretty quickly! It was a little hard at first to sort out the color/pattern/contrast situation, bcuz we KNOW I wasnt going to be using solids, even tho I think the solid fabric Meadowlands look GORGEOUS, too!! Plus, I'm also using patterned low(ish) volumes for my background, too - so LOTS of pattern mixing 😁👍 and its super fun! Have a fun-filled weekend, kids! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pattern is Meadowland by @thencamejune #meadowlandquilt#fabricaddict#creativehappylife#handmade#creativelifehappylife#artastherapy#pursuepretty#isew#makersmovement
Mums been making some hand made clothes for our little babe ❤️ the second photo is of my Dad holding my eldest brother wearing trousers knitted from the same pattern back in the late 70’s. The top she’s making for us (in photo 1) it made from the same pattern and the same wool over 40 years later!!
We haven’t had much time to post recently. We’ve been moving house and preparing for the arrival of our new baby so have had our hands pretty full, soon we will be decorating and setting up our new garden studio so we will be posting a lot more of what we have been up to then. Until then here is a picture of a cat sitting on a quilt...
