Labors of Love

When I took on the Agnes Dei banner project; I did visual research on sewing this type of artwork.

I realized that people have invested hundreds of hours creating these gorgeous crafted items. They also have limited distractions in their lives. My life is defined by distractions of various degrees.

I have escaped bulls in my yard, visitors stopping by, calls to make, machines to repair, deliveries, plantings and harvesting, 3 meals a day to make and house chores.

But when it gets calmer in winter, I'd like to make one of these. For my church a piece I create that will be seen by those who visit. To bring some beauty into their lives. We all have gifts and talents to share. Sewing is mine to share.
