This is last week’s quiltlet, using applique. (Can you see the free motion writing in the background?) As the winter solstice approaches I feel a definite connection to the ancestors who knew that this is a time of year that calls for light. Different cultures, religions, and traditions all felt called to honor light at this time of year; it’s a common human need. This year feels even darker than usual. I seek the light, in myself and others. Be the light in the darkness.
