To bring you up to date, I have been working on a few new things that I'd like to share with you.
The first,, "Early Winter" is a 9" x 23", thread sketched, quilted, hand colored and mounted work that is ready for hanging.

“Not One More”
We have spun fiber to clothe the people.
We have sewn our flag.
We have sewn on stars.
We have sewn quilts for warmth.
We have sewn quilts for the walls.
We have sewn quilts that led slaves to freedom.
We have sewn patches onto worn cloths.
We have sewn uniforms as our men and women were sent to war.
We have sewn opulent clothes for the rich.
We have sewn clothes from scraps and feedbags for the poor.
We have sewn our tears into the fabric of our lives.
We have sewn up the rips and tears of the nation.
We have sewn together the wounds of war with threads of hope.
We have sewn families together in love.
But we refuse to sew shrouds for one more victim of gun violence in America.
We refuse to sew shrouds for one more victim of gun violence in America!
