Feeling my Quilt feelings…

 This one is for when you’re feeling lost, from Carl Jung:

…..the past couple of days……EVEN AS A HAPPY QUILTER……   My feelings are myriad…..   hmnnn





“Nobody can set right a mismanaged life with a few words. 

But there is no pit you cannot climb out of provided you make the right effort at the right place.

When one is in a mess like you are, one has no right any more to worry about the idiocy of one's own psychology, but must do the next thing with diligence and devotion and earn the goodwill of others.

In every littlest thing you do in this way you will find yourself.

BEING MINDFUL……..

Daily inspiration.  Check out my daily text!!!!! From my friendly fellow blogger!





Drumroll for Harriet Powers 1837

 I’ve always bee pleased with my younger depiction of Harriet (abt 48-50 yrs old).  1898 approx exhibiting her Bible Story Quilt in Athens GA.  Her pride n joy… Telling her story! Her eyes are looking to the future …  the future of Women…. The next generation of proud independent-self taught, highly





Skilled African American women!

I struggled with the eyes—-smile—and her expressions as Harriet later paid for her photography session—leaving a history for us to envision!

Quilt Me A Story #1

Early on, Quilts fulfilled a very utilitarian need—  protecting us from the cold or providing warmth, and even healing and comfort for the sick

Geesch!!!  I long for just a chance to see, handle gently and to photograph/document quilts of the 1800’s!! Quilts could be used as bed and door and window coverings or as a special wrapping for baby’s first hours of arrival!  

 Lamentations 2:22  It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
