Seeing Faces–Cape Cod Style

Lobster Trap Face

Like many of you,  I have Pareidolia- I see faces everywhere…

In July, I saw the face below on a wood-join while visiting a friend’s cabin in Wisconsin–

Last week, I travelled to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard …and saw the above face in a lobster trap.

I have lots more to share about my trip to Massachusetts…but for now, I’m knee-deep in laundry!

  1. I see fmq designs everywhere now. The circus wagon you posted a few weeks ago; the way the vine curled across the top of a fence; the art deco on an old piece of “valuable junk” while watching some tv show… I haven’t drawn them or stitched them but I see them… and I’m always “seeing” interesting designs or faces in tree bark, wallpaper and even pebbles in the sand.

    Maybe I’m not nuts after all 🙂

  2. I see quilt piecing patterns and quilting patterns everywhere!! I’m always taking pictures of “weird” things…floors are awesome and tile work, fences, lace, wheel-lines, tattoos! People think I’m strange but I just have quilt-brain!!

  3. Ha ha. I am not alone!
    I remember saying to my son or husband see how that looks like a ….. usually I’d get a funny look and a head turning sideways to see what I was seeing. Sometimes after a bit of explaining and pointing out they would see it but other times not. I would get a chuckle. Funny how we can see things immediately and others just do not see it at all.

  4. I’m going to have to remember that name of this malady, I also see faces everywhere. I’ve been seeing them since I was a kid, also since I have become a quilter (7 yrs. now) I see quilt designs all over the place. I’ve taken pictures of the quilt designs, but maybe now I should take pictures of the faces also. THANKS for letting me know I’m not alone.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
