Sample Boards

I was delighted yesterday while searching for fabric samples at Chelsea Harbour Design Center to come across this sample board at Marvic Textiles with a hand drawing of chairs and a window. "Who did the drawing?" I asked. Terri Pomeroy said she did as we fell into a conversation about drawing, the drawing board and how we were taught: on the drawing board.

Knowing how important computer drawing is, particularly for alterations and on large projects it is necessary. But a hand drawing reminds me how it  can evoke a scene with as much imagination and a touch of what?  heart, soul.

A lovely drawing and a lovely sample board at Marvic Textiles by Terri.
