My hand stitched block from a woman in Mali, halfway around the world arrived today. Now it’s up to me to make “grinding maize” into an art quilt to sell for The Advocacy Project. 1/2 the money goes to the Malian woman who is a Gender Based Violence survivor and 1/2 goes to teaching others to sew and sell their wares in a micro economy.
When I look back at all the art I’ve done in my life, I am sad I did not document so much of it. So, starting today this will be my space. Post a photo, date it, add a bit of commentary to give it context and voila, it’s documented!
