Gifts

This antique woolen courthouse steps quilt was my Christmas gift from Ned. I think it is likely about one hundred years old. Another gift was the Alice Neel book by Ann Temkin from my two youngest daughters.

...oh i was full of theories
of grand experiments
to live a normal woman's life
to have children...
to be the painting
and the painter...
Alice Neel
