I recently received an incredible Christmas gift from a co-worker – a patchwork quilt that she had made by hand. It reminded me of the beauty and simplicity of feminine handicrafts – and of the days of yesteryear when my grandmother and her friends would create crafts together as a way to socialize.
I keep tossing around the idea of joining a “Bitch N Stitch” group - but until that day of motivation comes, I will tide myself over by admiring these beautiful pieces are art. Truly, some of them are awe-inspiring:
