Take a look at this piece of art! I found this yesterday at Goodwill for 99 cents. I couldn't believe it! Why would someone let this end up at a thrift store? Someone spent hours sewing, binding and stitching these stunning Redwork creations!
Read about the history of Redwork here.
So, to you, whose fingers lovingly stitched beauty on fabric,
Your work has not gone unnoticed. It took my breath away. I sat in the car for several minutes just looking at it, examining every square inch. I will cherish it as though someone had made it just for me. Cuz without you knowing it, you were making it for me all along. And I am humbled that I am the recipient of this treasured gift.
I can't help but imagine you wandering through your favorite quilt shop, touching every piece of fabric. You knew when you saw the right combination. It just felt right, in your heart and to the touch.
And then you found the perfect buttons for that finishing touch. Not to take away from the Redwork, but to enhance the designs in the Redwork.
I wonder what you were doing while stitching, what you were thinking...
Did you know that someone would someday notice your perfect stitches? That they would marvel at your technique, your artistry? That they would have wanted to know you?
Well, I would have... but I am content in knowing I have found your quilt a home. One where it will be displayed for all to see... to be admired and to inspire. One never knows where ones art will end up. I am just really blessed to have found yours.
