My Mother's Garden

A small section of  My Mother's Garden - which is based on rubbings taken from my parent's former home of 40 years. Over the years, some of the gates, wire and trivets have made their way to Tarome. One gate was rubbed here as part of a day with some of the 2QAQ artists. Other pieces were found in the garden beds at Mackenzie, or were rubbed from steps, pipes and tiles in and around her beloved gardens. The leaves that gathered around the pavers were a source of constant action by my mother - the finished quilt will include a tribute to her ongoing war with leaf litter.  My Mother's Garden is the next part of the quilting (or more accurately the emotional)  journey from "My father's Shed".  And now to finish off that last assignment on copyright ....
