A quite day...

Greetings All,
It's been a very quite day here and I've spent most of it creating a new website between a bit of cooking.  I am so very thankful for the ability to be able to do this, and I am grateful to have celebrated a birthday this week also.  For a moment I tried to have a pity party, but that didn't last long after talking with my children to whom I am very grateful for and that brought me back around.  I hope/pray that you all have had a great/safe day and do have a wonderful weekend.  Shop Small Business, and much love to you all.

Quilt - V of The Lynch Quilt Project

Greetings All,
I've been working on Quilt-V of  The Lynch Quilt Project and let me tell you this has been a learning experience like no other for me.  

"The Lynch Quilts Project is a community based effort, which examines the history and ramifications of racial violence in the United States of America through the textile tradition of quilting. Join us in weaving a new future towards social justice - past and present".

Quilt IV: Failed State
This quilt explores the paradox of theory vs. reality in terms of the politics and ideological framework concerning the larger context in which lynching and racial/ethnic violence began and continues to exist in America.

I tried quilting this quilt on a long-arm machine and caught all type of problems.  I got help from someone who had quilted several quilts on this machine and she too caught all types of problems.  This went on for days until the point that I had to take  the quilt home and remove everything that I had done.  I took a break for the quilt for a couple of days and then returned and finished the quilting and for that I am grateful.

Collaboration-Gate Keeper of the North.

Greetings All,
I have been gifted a piece and I have decided to create a new collaboration series.  Below is the piece that was on it's way to the trash bin so I was told and I have cut in to 4 sections and appliqued figures onto them, canvas wrapped them, and embellished with keys, cowrie shells, and buttons.

Below is the Gate Keeper of the North (8 x 10).
