God continues to cause healing as He compels me to create. A collection I call “Sewing Seeds,” is the result of such a significant gift.
The group makes it’s official debut (to the trade) at the International Quilt Market in Kansas City, May 18-20. Sewing Seeds features a beautiful blend of original art, vintage images with a sprinkling of sowing related scripture. This market I have the added pleasure of assisting in the display set up so, in preparation I am collecting cans and overseeing other display details.

The Garden/Sewing inspired concept has been on my (ideas) books since 2008. Sowing seeds, both biological and spiritual with a play on the sewing vs sowing words, was a challenge to convey. However, as the line developed, the ideas blossomed through (pain &) perseverance. Knowing that snippets of the healing Holy text as part of a quilt, may offer similar comfort as it covers a child (or someone), perhaps a hundred years from now, for me is an overflowing cup. I am already enjoying the yield and hope you will too. To see more Sewing Seed images, go to FaceBook.
