I've been waiting to write quick note ... I'm working on including new products and "things" to Quilt Poetry, to be added shortly. I did take a little time for myself - and with summer heat and humidity found concentration a little difficult anyway. But I'm "on it" now.

I've been re-reading Main Street by Sinclair Lewis - it's been, oh, let's say a few years since I'd first read it - and really enjoy his descriptions of seasonal changes in Minnesota. The cool crispness of autumn, first frosts, uniform rows of golden wheat stubble, and bright cloudless days are evoked so clearly.

Plus the book is incredibly funny and a sharp look at us all. Through Carol and her new husband, Doc Kennicott of fictional Gopher Prairie, we see a lot of ourselves, bad and good. I grew up in a small Minnesota town - though not quite in Lewis's Sauk Centre.

Evoking feeling is really an art form in itself. I think the best books, movies, and television shows are the ones that bring you into a world and then stirs emotion, lets us be bold, or lets us be timid.

Or, however rare, shows us something of quiet mystery and beauty.

Or just tells a really good detective yarn. I like those too.

Enjoy the pages you find here, and check back for new items, fabrics, and patterns as well!

This Fabric ...
Anastasia is inspired by a traditional European paper cutting art.

Graceful curves, stylized birds and flowers, and intricate lace-like forms typtify the art.
