“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“A sombrero fell out of the sky and landed on the main street of town in front of the mayor, his cousin, and a person out of work. The day was scrubbed clean by the desert air. The sky was blue. It was the blue of human eyes, waiting for something to happen. There was no reason for a sombrero to fall out of the sky. No airplane or helicopter was passing overhead and it was not a religious holiday.”

Ever wondered why we think of blue for boys or pink for girls, or why bows and floral designs are absent from boys’ clothing? These aspects of children’s clothing – along with the history of boys in dresses and the taboo of trousers – are just a few of the subjects which will be touched upon in a new talk entitled Made to Wear.

How about wearing the colors you LOVE and dressing children likewise without stereotype?

As giant, inexpensive homeware brands such as Ikea continue to grow worldwide, it’s not wholly uncommon for people’s living rooms to end up looking like a page ripped right out of the catalogue. As an antidote to this somewhat homogenous aesthetic, it’s not surprising that an increasing amount of forward-thinking consumers are opting for a more artisanal style of homeware to furnish their lives.

And at the other end of the scale... there's me. Using second hand fabrics and second hand sewing machine to recover a second hand sofa. I'm not sure if it will work yet... but, it's definitely worth a try!

Couldn't agree more with this, what I call the 'high st' look. One of the reasons I gave up my soft furnishings business was because so many people had these rules in their heads they had to follow.

One of the reasons I retrained in textiles and started designing my own fabric which I sell through Spoonflower. It's so nice having fabric "not from the high street" www.spoonflower.com/profiles/peppermintpatty

I love to incorporate hand-made items in my home, however many people don't have confidence in their own sense of design, and basically use the catalogs as a personal decorator.

Yes, just like cheap, disposable clothing has crushed quality, IKEA has crushed the quality furniture business. It's a great time to buy anitiques here in the US, can't give them away.

Interested in moving our world towards positive social change? Join the group I started as a response to the Trump administration: Common Ground Creatives in Action. We have had great discussions and sharing there and I'm working on the website for it. The goal is to create change through nonviolence and creative actions that turn down the hate.
www.facebook.com/groups/CommonGroundCreativesInAction/

We stand against this Administration but recognize that it is a reflection of the deep unhappiness and frustration that people feel on all sides. If we move away from blaming parties and start focusing on issues, tackling one problem at a time, we can use our common interests and gifts to create positive change. Let's make a difference!Calling all creatives interested in social change through nonviolence! Common Ground Creatives is a response to the Trump agenda: we are against it.

But, we believe that most of us have more in common than we think. Hate will not solve our problems and we need to find solutions that will allow all life on our planet to thrive. Common Ground Creatives documents positive actions that helps us live in harmony, challenge destructive behaviors and encourage dialog. We want to apply these actions to our own communities, wherever we live.

Join our group to brainstorm and find support:
www.facebook.com/groups/CommonGroundCreativesInAction/

Our website is coming soon and will have a shop for artists creating positive protest and resistance art. Trump is not the problem. He is just a manifestation of the deep discontent and social alienation we find in our society. Let's do some healing and make some changes!

Feel free to post your links about what you are doing on this post.

These are "doilies" which fit small tables used by the nomads. The embroidery is amazing... Most are silk thread on silk fabric.Afghan Tribal Arts imports textiles, beads, carpets and artifacts from Afghanistan. Abdul Wardak travels a show route between Wisconsin and Florida.

Shopping #ethically is so much more than the beautiful prints and patterns that represent the cultural diversity in our world. It is about an appreciation and respect for the artisans that make these products and their culture. Next time you are out shopping for that unique piece to add to your wardrobe or home, pay attention to how it was made and who made it. Don't replicate or appropriate the stories and identities being represented. Protect the intellectual property of artisans around the globe!

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

I am now being represented in a gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico!! Santa Fe is the second largest art market in the United States.The emphasis this month is Cosmos flowers. These three pieces include the flowers. Oreo - the new Bull calf was born at our ranch in New Mexico a month ago. I am now covering the entire art in thread with no free motion quilting. I am also incorporating metallic and silk threads to give a shimmer to the image. My art is now framed. My next piece will be covered in art resin with a metallic paint. It is wonderful to have a new direction in my fiber art!! ... See MoreSee Less

Ingrid – Beautiful

Ingrid - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.

She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation 'Hole in the Market' in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago. The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified. So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years. By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull. This sculpture shows the beginning and the end of the process in another form of art – thread painting. I have applied over seventy colors of thread to the sculpture, bringing her to life. The blending of the colors is integral to the process.

This art is framed with a fabric matte. The quilt has exposed raw edges, allowing the viewer to see the layers of the quilt. The ragged edges echo the passage of the years since Ingrid passed away. Ingrid is now alive through this thread painting for all to see.

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

Branding day at the ranch is a day of hard work. The United States government requires, by law in all 50 states, that all newborn calves be branded. This is a tradition that dates back to othe 1800's. Occasionally, a calf gets away as you can see in one of the pictures. The two cowboys were dragged as they tried to catch the cow! We branded 142 calves that day. My ranch manager, Amanda, gathered people from adjoining ranches to help. These cowboys and cowgirls will travel to another ranch each week to assist in brandings for no pay. This is tradition. I was in the pens with my camera, trying not to get run over by a fast horse! We will have 300 calves born this year in New Mexico. ... See MoreSee Less

I can see your next project here!!!

I see a few quilts in those pictures!

Nasty process, probably painful so I think I'd run too
