If you've been following my blog you know I love patterns. Don't you? But why? According to Wikipedia the element (pigeon, plane) in the picture, called a "motif", can have an emotional effect on us. Each pattern has a different effect. Some are calming, some upsetting. Some are really beautiful. The first thought I had upon seeing the pigeons before I knew what they were was, "it looks alive". I thought the airplanes were embroidered fabric. Great fun!
