Everything needs to change
It is difficult to believe that such changes are even possible
but everything has to change
The way we see everything and our role in it

a square within a square, stability and a prayer for earth, contained and safe

There is a pleasure in making the work that comes from touching the material. 
Process is very important in my work.
Sometimes, the process itself is the content of my work.

cloth of a long marriage

praised be the fathomless universe, for life and joy,
and for objects and knowledge curious

red thread

even edging a garment in red has an amuletic power
in some countries, red thread is tied onto anyone in a transitional phase of life

The earth remembers the true path.
May we step lightly so that we can feel the way to proceed.

I wasn't illustrating ideas

the only art form I could do and also parent was quilt-making
I also painted watercolours of the beauty of motherhood, but I put my rage into the quilts
and as I worked on them the rage transformed from anger or frustration
into love.
It was noticible.
I wasn't illustrating ideas.  I was IN IT.
