G and I are blessed in that we have a massive playground provided by Mother Nature right outside our doors. But, for many "sheltering in place" means driving a distance to breath in all that nature has to provide. We live in a tourist town in the middle of a forest and as some counties and states have been gingerly moving forward into different phases, it is obvious that collectively we are craving fresh air and wide open spaces.
But, what if you do not have the option to jump in a car and hit the road? As a quilter there is an opportunity to bring nature inside! The whole idea of combining nature, art, and quilting is so outside my box. I recognize in this period of our history we have to get creative to keep our sanity!
Sooooo, when I visited the Stitchin Post in Sisters, Oregon I was WOW'd by how the gallery exhibit transported me to a beautiful space created by Grace Grinnell and inspired by Mother Nature!
Just like nature is abstract, Grace has captured a variety of views that embrace that which is the world out there! I hope you enjoy a peek at a few of her interpretations and it inspires you to bring the world outside into your space. These pieces are for sale if you are interested...just call the Stitchin Post! Someday soon you will be able to visit and see these and many others, as these are just a fraction of what is on display.
