This is the time of Corona virus. This is the time the world stopped turning. This is the time that the best laid plans of mice and men have gone awry. Every plan has 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 hurts! It's like living in a science fiction movie. No one saw this coming, all we can do is hope it goes away as rapidly as it came. Covid 19 is leaving such a wide wake of death and heartache, separation and anxieties. Together, we share such awful sadness and worry at this time. I wish you and your loved ones health, safety, peace. God be with us.
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.
