These days when I visit a book store I don't always buy a book but I always make a note of a book I would like to read.
The Pattern in the Carpet - a Memoir by Margaret Drabble looks very interesting so I made a photo-note so I would not forget it.
The title brought back memories of a room size Oriental carpet in my cousin's bedroom. We used the blocks in the pattern around the edges as rooms when we played paper dolls. The colors and lacing of vibrant colors still influence my art work.
