I’ve really been excited about fabric and string and yarn and twine and everything cloth. I even looked into a “Fiber” degree at the local art institute…until I found out that tuition is over $1200 per credit hour. fahgetaboudit. I’ve done some cloth-related projects around the house in recent days and plan to share them later this week, but for the time being, here are some of my favorite “fiber” products:
“Divine Twine” mini-spools via Olive Manna
Poetry and Cloth “Peace” screen print on linen
Olof’s Daughters “Balloon Boy” throw pillow
Scarlet Fig grey and yellow chair fabric
When I look at all of these, I notice that I’m developing an affinity for grey. But rest assured that I’m mixing in a lot of bright colors (mainly yellow, orange and chartreuse) at home. Do not take this blog post’s seemingly depressing color palette as a call for help. If you had seen my dorm room in college, or even my home just 2 months ago, you would see this more focused design sense as a big step in the right direction! More textile posts to come!
