… is the theme this week at blue bazaar. both my grandmother & mother are amazing seamstresses who have made everything from playclothes to ballgowns & quilts over the years. their work was always meticulous & the attention to detail impressive. this week’s theme is a tribute to them & indeed to my whole family – they make my life rich & complete. PS. i used MM boho papers to make a quilt using a log cabin design & stitched it together with DH’s gran’s old singer machine.


materials: mm boho papers, mm paint, mm tiny boho letters, CBX wooden frames, pressed petals chip chatter lettering, machine stitching.

photos are from top left: my brother sister & i on my 1st day of school; my mother, grandmother & great-grandmother with us three kids when i was a baby; my granbparents & dad’s extended family; my siblings & their families on my wedding day; our family last xmas; madi & bear xmas 2003.

i adapted one of maya angelo’s poems for the journalling: my family is a precious thread refining, enriching & strengthening the fabric of my life.
