a readers work that I am appreciating today.
I really love this image of her "studio helper..." ya know I think I have the same one.
She says this, beautifully, about the quilt:
in progress. Old beach towels that belonged to his dad, terry-towel nappies (diapers) used as nursing cloths when my girls were breast-feeding, a towel we received as a wedding present and a snippet of the towel I brought with me to Australia 10 years ago all tied to a pieced sheet of wool flannel... Put together somewhat roughly and quickly, a bit raw and uncomfortable yet warm and nurturing.. Like these early years of child-rearing.
