gifts


I have been stalling posting about this gift, partly because I really wanted to photograph it outdoors on a warm sunny day - wishful thinking even here in Georgia. Secondly I want to write eloquently about the artist and her devotion to her family and her art but she does it so much better here.

I was gifted with this exquisite and exuberant crib quilt just by raising my hand and saying "ME" at the right time. She makes traditional,completely hand made quilts because she simply wants to. needs to.  Her reasons are complex and personal but like any artist, she wants her work out in the world, not folded up in the closet. Alhough it came to me untitled, I'm calling it "Serena's Pride".

Thank you. You really posted on the most perfect day. My nana had a stroke :( My uncle is with her and she's now in the hospital. They are running all the tests today.

But really thank you. Your friendship means more than any quilt.

Shared art is special ... whether receiving or giving it.
