30-Day Challenge:: Noticing

It's short and, hopefully, sweet today folks because, sometimes, when you stop talking, writing, and thinking and start doing, you might just see something quite beautiful.
I was doing something as mundane as pulling fabric out of a discharge bath when I noticed how amazing it looked doubled up so that the pattern from the other half seemed to form a ghost image and the light from outside filtered through the fabric. I'm not going to pretend that I have my camera ever-present to record these kinds of images, but it was certainly nearby and knew grabbing it and shooting a few frames was worth the effort.

fabulous. Would be an interesting "transparency" quilt, a la Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr.

So beautiful, thanks for sharing that image. You are right, noticing takes stillness.

Malka, where can we buy your fabric?

A true artist has their eye open to beauty at all times. Well done for capturing and sharing it this time. I suspect at the end of our lives, of the traditional 5 senses we will think that we loved our sight the best.
