wholeness, completeness

 we can never tell our complete story or recover all our connections
 it would be an impossible telling
 memory becomes constructed
 memories are made
Enjoying details of the dense circular quilting lovingly stitched by an annonymous 19th century Canadian woman currently on display at the Dufferin County Museum.

Our kids are arriving today.  The grand boys have asked us to wait so that they can find the charlie brown balsam tree to decorate.

May you all have gentle times with loved ones these next few days.

What a lovely quilt. Is it "hawaiian"? I would like to do something like that, lots of slow hand sewing.
Best wishes for you and your family.

My first thought was that I wasn't seeing what I thought I was seeing . . . but I was. How incredible and truly a labour of love.

My best wishes Judy.
