I don't have too much to say today . . . our first real snow fell last night, so winter is really here. I'm spending the day with music and yoga and clearing out stacks of paper in my office so I have order and room to be creative. I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S., and a good weekend elsewhere, and are sending your best thoughts to the people of Mumbai.
At the risk of losing too much time to the Internet beast, here are some links to interesting sites for your pleasure:
- Guys, want to get Obama's look? There are plenty of opinions on Michelle Obama's authentic and lovely style; leave it to The Independent in London to break down Barack's elegant coolness/hotness in this slideshow. Of course it helps if you're tall, lean, brainy, confident to your bones, and have that whole leader-of-the-free-world aura.
- Le Studio Anthost is a textile and surface design studio in Brooklyn making very amazing one-of-a-kind fabrics. The Web site is intriguing and also a little frustrating -- it's beautiful in its design, but fabric views are limited. Still, you can see enough of what they're doing with a whole range of surface design techniques to be inspired.
- Two blogs that I regularly visit have moved. Sharon B's In A Minute Ago is now Pintangle.com. Jane Brocket's yarnstorm has relocated to this link. Her first post on the new blog includes this link to her list of Top Ten Beautiful Blogs -- and they are beautiful. All have fiber and craft elements. And they all make me realize I seriously need some better photography skills.
That's all I've got on this modest day. Back to cooking French green lentils and organizing.
