Art Break: “A Quilting Party”

And now, a lovely painting entitled “A Quilting Party” by Enoch Wood Perry. Painted in 1876, this oil painting is one that I have to say would look *amazing* in my office. I’ll call Sotheby’s and see what I can find… 😉

You know what I love best about it? It totally looks like the gal on the left is on her cell phone.

Have a wonderful week, everyone! Make time to sew, okay? It’s good for you.

  1. Nah, she is on the phone to her sister, who is on her way, to “Stop and grab me a Starbucks, will ya, please? Oh, and some donuts, too. I’ll pay you back when you get here. Kthxbye!”
