New to Aleta online is Brigitte Singh's hand-blocked Cream Chrysanthemum Variation 2.
In this mellow, earthy colorway, I can't stop imagining the fabric used for curtains flanking a row of windows in a light-filled, 70s-era, Carole King-esque Laurel Canyon house.
This summer I've been discovering her music -- and her old album covers. Over at this sight, I stumbled across a review that describes the iconic image on Tapestry as "unapologetically domestic." Two thoughts ran through my mind: (A) That would've been a great blog name or online alias; (B) If I ever audit the Women in Rock course, or any class on 20th-century music, I've got a paper topic. Jim McCrary's photo has multiple layers to analyze.
At the moment, I'm juggling work deadlines so for now let's just think about window seats and the possibilities of Singh's new collection.
