Kay from outofthebasement emailed me this fantastic article from The New York Times. "How Do We See Red? Count the Ways" relates the various contradictions of red: "Red is the premier signaling color in the natural world, variously showcasing a fruitful bounty, warning of a fatal poison or boasting of a sturdy constitution and the genes to match."
The article also explains how we see red, the way our eyes work, and why we are able to "discriminate among the subtle differences" in shades of red. The last 2 paragraphs about the productivity of people working in a red room are is particularly interesting!
Thanks, Kay, for sharing this article!
I'm not sure how I found Jude's blog, but I've been following for several weeks now and enjoying the process of her latest quilt. When I first started reading, I didn't recognize any of the commenters(but I visited their blogs and found more creative people). In the last week or so, I've begun seeing more familiar names.
Today's post is about the beginnings of her current quilt.
