Awake, my dear,
be kind to your sleeping heart
Take it out to the vast field of light
and let it breathe.
Ah! Reminders of summer on this solstice day. Sharing with you "Heart Broken Open", which seemed fitting for the season. From 2010, this is a whole cloth quilt; techniques include: dye painted, potato resist, water color pencils, machine quilted, hand embroidered.

I was honored to be this week's featured blogger on Nanci Hersh's Artist as Collector series. Many thanks to Nanci for the opportunity! I wrote about my appreciation of mola textiles, the art form by the Kuna artisans of the San Blas islands. As a postscript, I have since learned that the islands are threatened with rising waters, and the Kuna must relocate to other areas such as Costa Rica. What this will mean to the culture of the Kuna we can only guess. Heartbreaking.
