I didn’t have to travel far to attend our village’s jam session two Friday’s ago. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw a young couple who had come to visit an older friend. It’s rare to find young people in our 55+ village and they looked so cute and happy together.
They smiled and danced and as they swirled around to the music on the dance floor, I discovered fiber art in an unsuspecting place.
Alicia had found several crocheted doilies at either a thrift shop or yard sale (I can’t remember which). She loved that handwork and wanted to embrace all the work and love that went into the making of it. She bought several and sewed one onto the back of Ian’s shirt. I think it displays rather nicely. I’d love to see what she does with the others.
What I Learned Today:
- I don’t have much in the way of polka dot fabric. You all know what that means. No, I’m not making do with what I have; I’m heading to the fabric shop.
- I have much to learn from younger artists about using pieces in new and different ways.
Question: Have you found fabric art work in an unsuspecting place? Where? This one was surprising but the finished result is stunning. Ian was pleased to wear it. How’s that for a young couple supporting each other?
Thanks for stopping by and do come again.
