Happy Pride!

Since I didn’t make it to pride this weekend, I felt I needed to do something! I made this top while working in my basement. I wanted to go, but it was too hot to be out there while I’m still sick and with an ear infection, but next year nothing is going to stop me. I still have to add some borders and then figure how I’m going to quilt it. I really like it! Hopefully I’ll quilt it soon! Wish me luck!

Hope everyone who went to pride had a fun time! I was there is spirit, but also watching Sense8 while in my basement sewing!I think Sense8 was a good choice to watch sine I’m staying in on Pride.

Remember to always love yourself! Here’s to love!

Channeling Heartbreak

I didn’t really didn’t know what to do with myself. I keep reading news articles about the Pulse massacre, and it was just heartbreaking. I decided I really needed to do something productive before I let the depression set in. I decided to do a whole cloth quilt with equal signs on it. One for each of the victims. Hopefully I’ll have the top done by tomorrow night, and my plan is to auction it off somewhere and donate the money to a charity based in Orlando. Wish me luck!

Quilt For Equality

2013.76.1a-1.small

I was planning on bragging about how wonderful it was that I got published in a book for my quilt on gay rights, but now I’m at home heartbroken after this unspeakable tragedy. This catastrophe that made me feel uncomfortable and empty, I decided to channel my grief into a new work inspired by the continuing struggle for gay rights.

Updates to come on my latest works later in the week.
