The Warp and Weft of Winter - 2009

Last year I did a post, The Warp and Weft of Winter, highlighting some of the textures and patterns inside the Quiet Country House. When sunshine spilled through the windows Sunday afternoon, casting interesting shadows, I saw things that I don't always notice. I grabbed the camera and wandered through the house.

Love your use of close up in order to highlight design and detail. And I always loved that quilt.

Aisling said...

Thank you! I love that quilt too. Right now it is hanging on the wall at the head of our bed. I used to use it on the bed, but we have a couple of cats who use their claws and "noogie" the blankets at this point, so I'm protecting it from that while still enjoying it!

I see unusual things in my house when the sun comes spilling in, but it usually includes dust bunnies and old spider webs.

You obviously have a better eye than I.

Aisling said...

Memaw, LOL! There are plenty of those here too. I just didn't aim the camera at them!

What beautiful textures and designs! You have such an eye for the detail and beauty all around us. I especially like the sky and clouds through the screen--how interesting! Keep on snapping those photos; you have a real talent there, Aisling!
