Family Life

Family Life 1990 Bear's Paw pattern, made entirely from re-purposed family clothing,
 the names of the family are used as quilting stitches.
 The shapes of the bear's paws made me think a mother's reaction to the chaos within a busy family day.
She throws up her hands.
from October 30 2006

So often I feel that I am the one who is responsible for all the things that are happening to me and to those around me.  I feel that I should be more in control of the situation when in actual fact, there's not much I or anyone can do.  The only place where I can do exactly what I want and can take total responsibility is the art I make.  Thank goodness for art.
