I am posting each day of the Quilting Arts TV blog hop with a personal message about inspiration and creativity. When you’re done reading here, pop on over to the featured artists of the day to enjoy their blogposts. Today’s bloggers are: Carrie Bloomston (suchitysuch.blogspot.com) AND Catherine Redford (catherineredford.com)
Today’s inspiration is The Woods. As a child I spent a good bit of time roaming around and playing in the woods, and basically, I just never stopped.
I go hiking whenever I get the chance, and the woodlands and wild places of Pennsylvania are a never ending wellspring of inspiration for me. My work is not overtly political, but it has an environmental subtext. I am doing my part for the preservation movement by quilting paeans to the large and small wonders I find in the wild.
The woodlands filter our water and our air. They provide habitat for the flora and fauna that comprise our biome.
And who isn’t improved and inspired by a walk in the woods? It gives us time to slow down, to observe, to be still.
When you are back from your walk, keep that happy vibe going by watching your Quilting Arts TV DVD
