Today, I walked 17,000 steps and climbed Kilimanjaro. And it was all done indoors.
How? Why? Tomorow and Sunday the quilt group the Textiliste belongs to hosts their bi-annual exhibition. Long time readers may recall they held a special last year, as a What did you do during Covid themed show, but this was back to the tradition. And the Textiliste, because of her extraordinary calmness under pressure, artistic eye and ability to hold several thoughts in her head curates the whole thing. Me? I climb ladders and stairs and hang quilts. It’s a full day, for sure.
They have competition quilts, team quilts, quilts that have been made to be raffled.. this
There’s a shop full of goodies,
a village of quaint houses
some sunflowers to remember Ukraine
and the completed cabinet of curiosities marking the end of the Queen’s reign
and so much more. But mostly they are just joyous examples of artists at work, exploding with ideas and colour. If my images fail to do them justice, that is my fault. Enjoy this sneak preview…
After the weekend, I may be able to post some other details, but let’s absorb this first.
And the Textiliste? This is one she co-authored with a friend
and these are inspired by Mind the charity they are supporting with the money they raise from the door, the raffle and the shop.
