Homespun

Last month I shared Deborah Mersky’s tex-tiles with you. Today I’m welcoming you into my house.

Joe and I have lived here for many years. Fabric is woven into our home and life. Each piece of cloth tells a story.

It reminds me of the place where it came from, and of particular meals or celebrations.

Some of the fabric on the windows and doors is from around the world.

I made some of the curtains.

The quilt is by Sarah Mary Taylor, a gift from Ella King Torrey. Our friend Kay gave us the indigo-resist Hungarian deer. The cat pillow is from my sister-in-law Julia. Sigrid upholstered the bird and cherry couch with fabric that Roberta found. Almost every piece of fabric reminds me of friends and family.

And then there are tablecloths!

And more tablecloths…

All of this fabric makes daily life richer, and it feeds my work. Here are a few new still life paintings.

I’d like to take a textile tour-de-friends. Please snap a picture of fabric from your home or life that means something to you and send it to me at  jpaschkis@comcast.net. I will post the pictures on this blog. Thank you!
