I have been wanting to sing up for an online workshop with Jude Hill for quite a while now. I have been a huge fan of hers for even longer. Well, I finally treated myself to "What If Diaries 1". This month we are exploring white.
This piece was born from consideration of all the hands that lovingly stitched pieces that I now treasure. Many of the stitchers are with me only in spirit--Aunt Virgie, Mammaw Inscoe, Mama Williams. Some of the pieces have faded, developed spots, grown threadbare and worn. But they are still precious. And they will be precious to my children. And their children as well. And so, this piece, "A Work in Progress" is a tribute to them. To the legacy they have left me--a love of pieces stitched together by loving hands.
(Wow, it has been a long time since I posted. Still no internet at home, but it is coming soon. And, in case you wonder, the maple is still there; we just went with another provider thus the dish will be in a different location.) : D
