Oh Gees

My oh-so favorite mix of modern and folk. Kilim rugs always warm my heart; especially when sitting under a Risom dining set. The Swedes really have some style. The quirky mix of old and new, modern and traditional; it makes the one look classic, the other new again. Or like the quilts of Gees Bend; so abstract and raw yet comforting and familiar. Someone made them patiently with their own hands. There was purpose in what they were making. Scraps pulled from who knows where, made to form something new. The history, the patience, the craft. Love it.  

PS. I really need to learn how to properly quilt.  Maybe that means I need to learn proper patience ?
