Bloggy Book Tour: Day Nine. Inspiration.

April 11th, 2014 § 0 comments

6a00e54fc19bef883301a3fcc0921c970bToday my book has trekked northward to Ontario for a quick visit with my friend Margie, rural family physician and textile artist extraordinaire. For quite some time I’ve been completely mesmerized by her breathtaking crocheted creations—so beautifully documented on her blog Resurrection Fern. Her nature-inspired work is a melding of fractal patterns and repurposed soft vintage threads all carefully worked with crochet hooks to cover earth worn stones and wood and other natural found objects. Lichen, leaves, webs, frost patterns—all are magically woven into intricate lacy designs—patterns guided by the color, texture and shape of nature. And she has so many other talents. You would not believe it. She is lucky that I live 510 miles away. It is next to impossible to keep me from stalking her. My book is with her today. You can visit right HERE.

And, Tinkerlab has taken things a step further and transforms a wool sweater into a funky felted flower—a project inspired by Chapter 10 of “This Book Was a Tree”—check it out right HERE.

Want to win a FREE copy of my book for a friend? Just visit HERE, HERE, HERE and/or HERE!
