in my last post, you'll have noted they're not all created by women. (Grin)
However, I wanted a bit of a connection between that post and this one from John Hopper about the makers involved in this enterprise founded by Ellen Dorsch of Vermont. To my delight, I've found a location in Edmonton that's on the list of vendors of these products. It's now on my "must see" list for my next trip up there!
And then... I wanted to draw your attention to this work by Canadian artist Judith (Judy) Martin...work I've admired before, and which continues to inspire. Taking a page from her book, I'm compelled to resume work on the crazy quilt blocks I abandoned a year ago, worn out from trying to do one a week.
I may or may not resume that pace, but return to them I will, this fall...a perfect slow-stitching project for the winter. I haven't lost sight of the piece for which I began to make them in the first place...and Judith's persistence has motivated me to get back at it!
