My niece turned eight this year, and oh, how I miss her! I kept putting down her art quilt and picking up other things that I "needed" to get done, just not wanting to finish it. I think it's my way of holding on to her. These quilts tie me to her in a deep spiritual and emotional and psychological way. Always as I'm working on them I think of her, things I'd like to say to her, things I'd like to do with her, places I'd like to take her and things I'd like to share with her and teach her. I offer up many prayers on her behalf and ask God to bless her in many ways. Through these quilts, I get to keep loving her, this niece I've lost, who was like a daughter to me. In this quilt, the verses are from Proverbs 3:15-18--"She is more precious than rubies, nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand, in her left are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed." What more perfect words could there be?
Forty something artistic soul finding her way through life discovering new insights almost every day through the gift of "making."
