But earlier this year, a British artist whose work I enjoy put out her first fabric line. Nel Whatmore uses color almost explosively in her art work, and her new fabric line from Westminster’s Free Spirit division looks to be a lot of fun. I hope that you will take a minute to visit her art gallery, and also to check out her fabric and her blog. Hey, this is not an advertisement, just sharing an artist I enjoy.
And recently, a friend in Fabricaholics Anonymous shared a link to an article about quilting from a UK paper, The Daily Mail. I do not think any quilter can resist sharing when the title is Why quilting improves your health in ways even exercise can’t manage. The study found that “quilting improved well-being in ways that physical and outdoor activities could not, and offered a creativity that had been ‘stifled’ in the modern world.”
OK, we are all saying DUH, because we knew that, but nice to see it in print! Thanks to G.F. for originally sharing the link. Back to the garden I go, the spinach is bolting in the heat. Besides, I suspect gardening is good for your health as well.
