Last night I got back from a trip to Eastern Europe. Grab a pillow and get comfortable: I will show you some of the fabrics that I saw in Moldova and Romania. There was pattern everywhere. There were woven rugs on the walls and on the floor.IMG_1951IMG_2401IMG_2745IMG_2600And there were stripes.IMG_2085

Rugs overlapped
These rag rugs were all on the floor in one room, making an impromptu quilt.

This woman was selling her knitting at the market and her dress was historical.

There were lots of women dressed in more everyday scarves and patterns.IMG_2765IMG_2764
Textiles are part of homes and restaurants.

I love the cacophony of patterns. Harmonious cacophony!IMG_2308
The past and the present are woven together.IMG_2743
