Our lives are made up of such a variety of textures...Natural and synthetic. Touching and experiencing the effects of a world offering so many sensations to our senses can be sheer bliss... Line dryed cotton sheets against the skin after a hectic day...bliss. Holding a glass of Ice Tea to your cheek when the heat is in the three digits...relief. Opening the freezer door and putting MY face in during a hot flash.... Oh, sorry...a little more then you needed to hear...Ha. The coolness of metal....

To the various levels of SOFT in fabric...

Have you ever noticed how no two quilts ever feel the same...The thread count and tightness of weave to the amount of quilting all are factors. Quilting by hand and by Machine have different feels. Old loved and used quilts verses New showpiece ones...totally different to the touch. Try it sometime....Close your eyes and just feel....Such intertainment we have been gifted with right at the tips of our fingers...

Often times we feel something just by looking at it. Seeing an overstuffed chair in a magazine with sheers billowing in a doorwall leading down a sand drenched path to the ocean...You felt that didn't you? ...

Architecture...A plethora of mind boggeling textures... Take a look today...what textures make up your immediate world?....xoxo~ My friends...

  7. Hi Kathy,

    What a lovely post, love that you appreciate the details, so often they get overlooked. Your photos are gorgeous. Thanks for the tip on the freezer, those darn hot flashes are no fun! I call them a power surge!!

  8. Kathy,

    Truly a thought provoking post and so beautifully written.

    There is nothing quite like the feeling of having your hand held by someone dear and near to you.

    Happy Sunday!


  9. What a lovely, thought-provoking post! And the photos are great too! Textures: I love the texture of my plant outside called lamb's ears. My quilts, yes, love to run my fingers over the stitching I so diligently stitched there. I love the feel of fresh sheets. Oh, and rose petals, so soft.

  10. I Love your blog!! Very soothing to the eyes!! Had a great visit. Stop by when you can. Connie
