farmland carpet

earlier this month i returned from an all too quick trip back to the states. to be honest, i have had a hard time catching up since i've been back, but i am working on it, and slowly making progress.

these custom carpets were featured on CRAFT a while back now, and are actually made in a variety of custom designs: netherlands, africa, usa, and this one, which is called europe. but to me, and this may just be the midwestern holstien cows, it looks more like the colors of the american midwest. i always find it mesmerizing to look out of the airplane window and see the squares of fields, cut into a grid by county roads perhaps, usually a little house and outbuildings, surrounded by trees, and then fields filling up the rest of the square.

Nice to Meet you!
I'm so excited to have found your Flickr, blog and etsy sites! I love everything you've posted as I am also a big craft, felting person. I plan to spend tomorrow looking at the Japanese craft books you have to offer on Etsy and reading more of your blog. I know I will find inspiration in your crafty world!
