Last Friday, I found time to bid on and purchase one of the SAQA 2020 Auction pieces! I did a quick review and then I noticed #518 “Dementia” by Heidi Drahota of Nürnberg, Germany: http://www.heidi-drahota.de . Shown right – it’s description reads as follows; “The background is a tablecloth that I sewed for my mother. Now she no longer decorates her house. She doesn’t know the time anymore, she doesn’t know the seasons. How long will she recognize me yet? I’m losing my mother – slowly creeping.” It will arrive via Fed Ex – can’t wait. My piece “Please . . . Join us” also sold on that same day. So far, $109,650 has been raised to benefit Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. mission. (https://www.saqa.com/)
Presently our swirling tree leaves in Connecticut are also going, going almost gone. My piece “Autumn Swirls” completed years ago echos that sentiment. Interesting to me that the tablecloth fabrics in”Dementia” seem to be from the same color palette as my 2009 piece. So my question now is “Were we purchasing fabrics in different countries at the same time?”.
STAY SAFE . . . Smith Stitch Studio and don’t forget to rake those leaves!
