Stitching is poetry in motion: hands and hearts are needed. First in a series. Screen printed, hand and machine stitched, beading. Quote from WB Yeats

This is a very cool quilt. I love the fingernails on the hand.

I'm been using this silk screened hand as a jump off for poetry about hands---  The hand signifies not only the Maker, and the body, but as a symbol of all that passes us without being seen or held onto for long.
