Hello! I am Rebecca Lindquist, and I am the simple quiet…. At least, I’d like to be simple and quiet, but it takes some work to live quietly in this beautiful, overwhelming world. As for simple, well, I think I’m simple but my husband and sister would beg to differ. Oh well…. I’m trying. I started this blog as a way to track my progress, both in my quest for quiet simplicity, and in my work as a fiber artist.
I find great comfort and peace in the two mediums I work in: rug hooking and punch needle embroidery. What is more beautiful, more soothing, warmer or more fulfilling than wool? (did someone say, “Chocolate”?) The way it fluffs up when washed and dried, the way it welcomes dyes, the way it keeps its soft edge when torn ~ O, the loveliness of wool! What is a better compliment to rug hooking than punch needling? The two seem woven together, and, indeed, in my life they are.
