Or while sewing and quilting, I often think of the countless women throughout history that sat and stitched or rhythmically worked there treadle sewing machines for hours. Whether it be a quilt, a cute little wall hanging, or a beautifully embroidered handkerchief, they were all artists.

Sending my love to all - Keep on creating!

peace, love, & cats -
