New Fiberarts Magazine....and look who's here...


As I was doing a quick look at my new Fiberarts Mag. (Nov.-Dec.) who should show up in a wonderful article but my friend and neighbor, Angela Moll! A very well written article with two great photos of her latest work. And here is a nice quote from Angela ( a very intelligent, fiesty and inspiring fiber artist)...
"A domestic textile and diary are metaphors for the interior life, perched between isolation and intimacy...related to all of that is the idea of a construction of a self and the expression of that self. Just as little by little a quilt is constructed, little by little a self grows in the practice of daily journaling." Angela used to live right next door...we would have tea and talk art and check out each others art projects...so fun to have a fellow artist next door! Now she and her husband live across the mountain top but we get to see each other at our monthly ATC meetings....

Thanks a lot, Mary, for your super nice post. It was great to live next door to you during our initial years in Santa Barbara. Your commitment to art-making and to the artful life is truly inspiring and you are the best ever landlady in the planet.
