Multitasking in Manhattan includes window shopping from the bus
I was seated across from the back door on the 57th Street bus a week ago headed to my guild meeting. When the door opened at the Fifth Avenue stop I looked up from my reading to see the display window below. My Weekly Reader these days is a smartphone with a camera. [click to zoom in on the images]
I immediately thought of the captivating "Leaves" summer spread (circa 1850) pictured in the inaugural edition (1983) of The Quilt Digest. I wonder if the window dresser was influenced by such a quilt. Now I see Roderick Kiracofe, who published the Digest with the late Michael Kile, autographed my copy in October 1994. If only I could remember the occasion.
I live in midtown Manhattan where I write about Quiltmaking. My three books are from C&T Publishing, "Rotary Cutting Revolution" is the newest. I teach Quiltmaking; I like what I do. This blog is occasional, scrappy and book-like; my Facebook page is newsy. I guard my privacy and cherish any spare time I have to sew.
