Looking at the photo upon my return home, it just called out to me to be a quilt. The actual figures are anonymous as we only see them from a back view but I used the poses from the photo as a rough guide. I also took some liberties with the original scene to make it more pleasing and show depth (like adding a piece of land in the distance and a tiny gull on the rocks). I call it 'The Sea is Our Mother' because of the respect that people who live near the sea and gain their livliehood from it, display. There is an understanding among maritimers of how generous, beautiful and powerful the sea can be. The piece is 24" x 18.5" and is hand-stitched and quilted. I pieced the rocks together with many, many stitches.....This piece invokes in me a picture of contemplation and a common understanding shared without words. It reflects my own love of the sea and rugged landscapes.

As you can see my flag counter is showing only a few visitors. That's because I was working on a new addition to gadgets and somehow lost my flag counter. When I tried to get it back it would not recognize my pertinent info (probably because it was inaccurate) so I had to re-register. I have sent an email for help but I am afraid that my stats are gone forever. I just loved seeing the number of countries who had visited my blog. Now I am starting from scratch.......
