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

The Men of my Family

Some times a quilt can be just a small piece that shows a few family pictures these are the men of my family.


I created this wall piece with pictures of my Great grandfathers and I even snuck in a picture of my Dad Rich Haggard in the 50's this is one of my favorite pictures of my dad.

He is the one in the upper right hand corner hands on hips and head tilted back. All the buttons on this quilt are work buttons or trouser buttons from uniform or work related. The fabrics were chosen for the male look as well. The black stitching was to keep in the masculine feel of the whole quilt.

Maybe you should make a piece to honor your father or grandfather to day.

Brian, I love this quilt! (Of course, I love ALL your quilts!) I wish I had more pictures of the previous generations of men in my family, but I'll figure out something! You continue to inspire!
