Welcome to my new blog! Does anyone recognize the name? It is a quote from the song Tapestry by Carole King–the title track of the album by the same name. I was listening to the song when I was trying to figure out a name for my fabric store, and the words jumped out at me. The tapestry represents a life which is “a wondrous woven magic,” and it somehow seems very fitting for me. So that is how I decided on Wondrous Woven Fabrics for my store. And, of course, Wondrous Woven Magic for my blog.
Tapestry was released in 1971 when I was about 4 years old, and I still know all the words by heart. It was one of my mom’s favorites, I imagine, and consequently mine, too. I still love Carole King’s music, even if that makes me seem like an old person to many of the young readers out there–assuming there are readers, of course!
My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue.
An everlasting vision of the ever changing hue.
A wondrous woven magic in bits of blue and gold.
A tapestry to feel and see, impossible to hold.
Life really is like a tapestry, isn’t it? And if you are a fabric lover like me, it’s great to use fabric whenever possible.
