Blue Faced Mother

This is a project I did for school last fall semester. Everyone was given a cigar box and we could do anything we wanted with it. I needle hooked a picture of my mother with part of her favorite scripture on the side: "Be still, and know that I am God." I put objects inside that would rattle around if you moved the box and then I sewed the box shut, covering the rest in fabric. The concept was that only by holding the box still were you able to not be distracted by the noise of the objects inside. This started a whole series of needle hooking.

This is one of my favorites of yours. You should do some more!

You really should--and I'm dying to know what exactly you put inside--or is that part of the mystery?

I have spent about 25 minutes browsing all the Family's blogs--I am confident it is time well spent.
Each of us are blessed by each other.
Thank you Becky and Kurt--great parents--for leading this famliy.

I love how so much of your work you've done has your mother's picture or some aspect of her in it. Your love and admiration for her is such a beautiful and sacred thing. It really shows in the work you do of her. This piece is wonderful as are the rest of your works!
