My mini-quilt for January is completed, and here it is shown both front and back. I have included on the front a piece of every thread that passed through my hands and used in some capacity throughout the month of January. Hand-stitched in straight stitch, back-stitch and French knots. My theme for this year is to work from my stash as much as I can, and this is reflected in the quote from Arthur Ashe.
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
As I am stitching I am reflecting and meditating on my world and the world around me. Using the resources that I have at hand without causing further damage to the environment. Extending a hand to others in friendship and welcome. Thinking about what I can do to make my home, my community and my my world a better place, then doing what I can to make it happen.
And a sneak peek at February:
