I’ve just discovered that the V &A (Victoria & Albert Museum in London) has an Online Journal which looks very interesting. There are a couple of patchwork/quilting related articles – Michele Walker: Keepsakes of Identity: Memoriam and Doing Time: Patchwork as a Tool of Social Rehabilitation in British Prisons.

No posts for almost a week and then like buses, two come along at once…
I have moved all my bookmarks to del.icio.us, which is a sort of communal bookmarking site and am busy sorting them all out, and clicking on all the links to test which are still live and which have perished in cyberspace. If you haven’t come across del.icio.us it is a way of sharing bookmarks – you sign up and can install buttons on your browser so that when you click on them you can add a link to your bookmarks and tell it which category to put it into. Then you can make them public if you want to… I am in the process of doing this and you can find them here. I will add a link to my sidebar in due course.
Anyway, to the purpose of this blog post! While I was sifting through my bookmarks, I found this useful article again: 9 reasons why every artist should have their own art blog.
I meant to post this yesterday but I spilt tea on my laptop keyboard so it had to languish overnight to dry, with all detachable parts duly detached. Luckily it doesn’t seem to have done any damage, or nothing which has shown itself yet.
While I was at FOQ, I met several people in the flesh whom I had ‘met’ several years ago through emails.
Carol was with her friend Jenny of Felted Fibers.
