|Greatest Possible Trust, Victoria Findlay Wolfe 2013|
Dear Quilt peeps,
I realize I have been very busy to post these last few weeks, and I wanted to stop in to say a few things, before I hit the road for the summer...
I am very grateful.
Putting together this group of 12 Double Wedding ring quilts has been a life healing experience, one that I didn't expect.
I get great joy in just creating each day.
What was unexpected was what I gave myself by focusing on my happy memories of my childhood. I don't often focus on the joyful parts, as it's often easier to see the negative aspects. At least for me, I can recall, so much easier, the the things that brought me sadness, so one needs to work at finding joy. This series has brought me to a great place of joy and respect for where I came from...
I do hope you can come to see the quilts. (HERE)
These days, for me, making quilts has meant I have to keep them to myself until they are ready for their event, publish date, etc, and so I don't get the feedback from you all, which is why we all start blogs in the first place, right? To connect, have feedback, and find your people...
I hope to find more projects I can share with you, as they grow...
You are my people.
My life as a grown woman, has been all about finding the JOY in my life, and a few things bring that me that each day:
One is my family. My husband and daughter are the best things in my life, hands down.
Two, is my creative process. Making what I feel, what inspires me to create more, and exploring how that creativity can bring me more JOY.
Three is giving back.
Weather I'm giving money, a handshake, or a quilt, those are the truest moments, of pure Joy, I think, one can feel.
I feel very blessed that I get to "make" each day. It is the most important thing to me, to help those around me...
I am still gathering quilts for the Stadium Women's Shelter in the Bronx, all trough this year... These quilts are for women

Share the joy.
If you can come see the quilts at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts,
My hope is you will see my Joy.
Thanks for sticking with me!
