It must be a silver lining to have your daughter home with you sharing the beautiful weather and the stitching. Your Prayer to the Sky is profoundly touching. The madder undercurrents speak of complication and depth in what is already an infinite space. Its warmth brings the distant heavens into personal experience.
Dana, my heart overflows when I see her approach this wonderful art form with so much passion and curiosity. A silver lining to this pandemic time, yes.Thank you for beautiful comments about Prayer to the Sky. I appreciate them very much xo
I really like her ideas. What a gift to have this time with her.
I like her ideas too. It's inspiring and hopeful to be with her during this time of uncertainty. She is a gift. xo
This is all so wonderful! Beautiful quilts and a lovely to go with it.
The quilts are beautiful and reflect her curiosity and fearlessness. We are lucky to have her with us. She is also helping v much with the garden! xo
Sending a virtual hug to you both and so very impressed with all that April has been accomplishing in the past 6 weeks - adore the new quilts and love that they are all hand work! Congrats!
Bethany, it is crazy how much she has done. 4 of the 5 on the line were started before she came home. As you know, to make a quilt takes months, years - and she has started at least three that are not on the line. Others that she has gathered fabric for and speaks about as if they have been started. Do you remember when April attended that Fibreworks class in Kingston that I was teaching around 2009? This is not a flash in the pan for her - she is committed, or do I mean adicted, to the hand stitched quilt as an art medium. She is also an accomplished sculptor and ceramic artist. Thank you for the hug dear friend xo
WHAT A KID! : ) xoxo
Yeah . You are. Xxx
What a lucky woman you are, Judy ! I have 3 daughters and not a one of them wants to even entertain the thought of following in my footsteps ! LOL !Beautiful work, April !!
She definitely follows her own path - and it has many forks and branches and up hills and side tracks - but yes, I am glad that she likes to make quilts. It is a shared passion xo
Thank you for taking the time to connect. Much appreciated.xx
