I am drawn to sewing. I like needles and colored threads, small work and tiny stitches – lap work. Some call it piecework. I call it peacework. Recently, I spent some time looking at quilts and especially crazy quilts. I admired the controlled randomness of the construction and the fact that they were usually made of remnants. The idea of using things that are left over, the bits that remain after something is made, has a strong appeal. Pieces of memory making new memories.
