In April of 2006, I pieced this quilt with my mother and learned how to hand-quilt. I finished sewing on the binding this weekend. The best part was that mom was able to show me each step of the way, just as her mother had taught her.
Life is full of unexpected challenges and blessings. We've been dealt many, and as we adjust to our fortunes and misfortunes, I will find ways to share some of what brings energy to me each day. Now that we have bought a home in the mountains, this may often be as simple as working with my hands whether in the studio or in the gardens. But maybe, just maybe, every now and then, I'll have something signifcant to share.
