Over at Artists in Blogland there is a new challenge called Color This Quote - it sounded interesting and fun and I immediately had an idea of what I could do for it, so I decided to give it a go - I hope I am not too late!
This weeks quote is
'Good friends are like quilts - they age with you yet never lose their warmth'.
The image is of my mum Joan (on the left) and her best friend Eileen - they had a warm and strong friendship for over 75 years. I hand stitched small pieces of 'quilt' to represent the unbreakable bond between them - the little scraps of letters, the stamps symbolizing the miles between them, and fragments of memories from their days out in London, where they both grew up - all carefully held together by strong threads.
