Still in love

Ever since my good friend and super talented designer pointed out the giant felt piece in the David Rubenstein Atrium at  Lincoln center about a year ago, I've been obsessed with Claudy Jongstra.  I had been in that room before and always thought it was a painting.  But, it's so much more.  The walls are COVERED with beautiful hand died, handmade felt. It still takes my breath away every time I get a grilled cheese sandwich and chickpea salad at Witchcraft.

Well,  yesterday, Melissa sent me a picture of a gorgeous rug not realizing it was made by Claudy. It sent me back to her website, www.claudyjongstra.com and I'm obsessed all over again.  Check out these pictures of her process. So insane. Can we please take a trip to the neatherlands and help her tend her flock of rare Drenthe Heath sheep?

I'm in love, too, and want to make some rugs. Wonder if the llama and sheep fibre will turn out as lovely!? Are you going to Umbria to take her June class? Wouldn't that be a trip to heaven?! Am I still sending you this wool from my friend?? Did I drop the ball? xoxo j.

this is probably a dumb question but it was dyed red and that's why it's that color right? The place looks very interesting.
