"The world is a rose. Smell it and pass it to your friends." Persian proverb
The annual SAQA Benefit Auction deadline snuck up on me this year. I have donated for more years than I can remember, so when they gently reminded me the due date was fast approaching I dug deep.
This little quilt was begun years ago but only recently finished. I photographed a rose, printed it on fabric, and machine quilted all over it. What took so long was the hand beading on the petals, which you can't see too well in the detail shot. Because I don't see that well anymore either, it's my beading swan song.
Here's my latest Tad Dah! moment. My piece "I Pledge"(see previous post on 4/22) made the cut for the Threads of Resistance traveling exhibit. I'm extremely honored that I get to hang out with some big talent. To say nothing of the passionate and timely messages illustrated therein.

It's no secret that I am among those who are appalled by and resistant to Trump and his administration. I made this little quilt because there has been a call for fiber art themed "Threads of Resistance." Probably preaching to the choir, but here is my first shot. There might be a second.

Sayonara to all my postcard friends out there. Art will always be the best way to share ourselves.

Tomorrow I will carry another quilt (see below) as I join the Women's March in San Luis Obispo. Here's hoping that kindness, generosity, and vigilance will see us through.
