those finally finished objects are the best in the end, naturally slow cloth. Palin is one scary woman. and i definitely used this moon to wish on in that regard.

Wow, that is really really fine artistry.

And hey, 10 years for a quilt, that's better than I'll ever do.

Saw your insightful comment on Christine Kane's blog and was curious as to who the thoughtful commenter was, so here I am.

Thank you, Heather . . .
UFO = UnFinished Object. You know, the ones that live with you forever, languishing, and you eventually have a come-to-Jesus moment and either let it go or finish it.

You do beautiful work Elaine. I especially like the bead embroidery piece. However, what is a UFO quilt?

10 Qualities of Slow Cloth, by Elaine Lipson

  • I defined Slow Cloth several years ago on this blog. Read the original post at http://lainie.typepad.com/redthread/2008/01/this-must-be-th-1.html. (Copyright Elaine Lipson 2007-2011; all rights reserved).
  • Joy
    Slow Cloth has the possibility of joy in the process. In other words, the journey matters as much as the destination.
  • Contemplation
    Slow Cloth offers the quality of meditation or contemplation in the process.
  • Skill
    Slow Cloth involves skill and has the possibility of mastery.
  • Diversity
    Slow Cloth acknowledges the rich diversity and multicultural history of textile art.
  • Teaching
    Slow Cloth honors its teachers and lineage even in its most contemporary expressions.
  • Materials
    Slow Cloth is thoughtful in its use of materials and respects their source.
  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
  • Expression
    Slow Cloth is expressive of individuals and/or cultures. The human creative force is reflected and evident in the work.
