HELLO AND WELCOME!
January 2021. We have to this point survived the time of Corona virus. We survived the time the world stopped turning; the time that the best laid plans of mice and men went awry. Every plan was changed, every contract canceled, every job lost, every trip a no-go. No jobs, no fun, no travel, no adventure, no income. Well, dang! That hurt! It was like living in a science fiction movie. All we can do is hope it goes away; I lost dear friends to this horror. As I write this the vaccine is being administered nationwide. We can only pray that it is effective and people can resume their lives, their jobs, and resume dreaming dreams.
Last year I took down my calendar/schedule page, as everything was canceled, but I am putting it back up in hope that the world begins to turn again, that shows and guild meetings safely return, that people who love books and art - and people! - can once again gather.
I write, but I will always be an artist, a quilter, a sewer of old things into new. I like to work with worn things I buy in thrift shops, the kind of places you go into with rubber gloves and tongs. I have such a heart for the women who came before me who worked so hard to find a few moments to make beautiful things for their families; a crocheted doily, a hanky with tatted edges, an embroidered dresser scarf, or a stack of quilt blocks they never got around to setting together. These are the fragments I gather and find great joy in giving new life. As you look at the quilts in the galleries, you will spot the vintage pieces.
And now...about the "writer" part of my heading! The one good thing to come from the Covid19 isolation is that I have written a novel - my first!. Even though I've written and been published, all my previous work was non fiction.
