One of my favourite websites is this joy+ride
, an online journal of sorts that comes out once every two weeks. Co-curators Shari and Sheri interview all sorts of creative souls – from poets and photographers to pizza makers – and this week they interviewed Andrea Dorfman
. Although I never met Andrea when I lived in Halifax, we had several friends in common, and so I was very excited to see her name on the current issue of this joy+ride
Then I watched the video, "Tilting Quilting," that was included in her interview. I couldn't wait to share it with you today. It's lovely
As Andrea describes it:
"right now i am on Fogo Island, Newfoundland in the north Atlantic. on September 12th, everyone who had handmade quilts in the town of Tilting, hung them out on their clotheslines for all to see. voila!"
~Andrea Dorfman, this joy+ride issue 44
It's about 2 minutes long, so you can fit in a viewing (or three, ahem) over your morning coffee break. (Just make sure you've got the sound turned down, or a pair of headphones, if your cubicle buddies aren't fans of fiddle music!) I guarantee that it will make you smile.
Have a great weekend.
