My Family of Fiber Artist

This is my Grandmother Irene Rutherford,
who was a fiber artist. She loved making quilts.
This is my cousin Robin Ferguson who is not only a fiber artist but
is also very talented in painting and many other arts.
Below Robin is modeling a completed
Aran Wrap Cardigan Vogue Fall 2008
made by her.

A Treasure
by Mildred HatfieldIt's more than a coverlet,
More than a spread,
This beautiful quilt
That graces my bed.
It's laughter and sorrow,
It's pleasure and pain,
It's small bits and pieces
Of sunshine and rain.
It's a bright panorama
Of scraps of my life-
It's moments of glory,
It's moments of strife.
It's a story I cherish
Of days that have been,
It's a door I can open
To live them again.
Yes, it's more than a cover,
This much-treasured quilt,
It's parts pieced together
Of the life I have built.
