I Cannot Contain Myself . . . (and why would I want to?)
Time is so very fluid now. Let me rephrase that: our perception of time has become more fluid. I just added a comment to a January 29th post on the Quilting Arts blog, and then realized it was for January 29th, 2008! (An image popped into my mind of the melting clocks by Salvador Dali.)
The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali
Here is that comment:
Thank goodness you call Katie Pasquini-Masopust “Katie P-M” and NOT “Katie P-M-S.” I am SO looking forward to taking a course with this “founding Rock Star” at Quilting By the Lake in July 20-24, 2009. I am even more excited now that I have it by good authority that she possesses a wicked sense of humor! Laughter goes well with everything. In fact, it improves it!
I am especially thrilled to be taking this class because “Katie PM” now creates “stitched paintings.” In my Against the Grain article in Quilting Arts (issue 33), I demonstrated my own techniques for producing stitched paintings (see more of these on my Flickr site). Obviously, a lot of quilt artists have plucked similar ideas out of the ether!
Let me know if you are attending Quilting By the Lake this summer, especially if you live anywhere near Toronto, or anywhere in the golden horseshoe, for that matter. It would be fun to carpool.
