My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.



I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

Etta Mae Special Day

This quilt was a work of love for the lady that made a great difference in my life my Great grandma, she was truly the matriarch of our family and she was great to show me how to sew small finger puppets and how to bake and definitely clean house witch I have forgotten.LOL






The picture is of her graduation in 1915 from Connersville High school IN she would be holding her diploma in her left hand and as you can see I own the very diploma so i had to take it to a copy shop because it was to big to put on my scanner to reduce it and then i could copy it on to fabric.

The small motifs around the edges are just out of my head. I can it doodling with thread. hope you enjoy.
