The Past is Surfacing Again

Celebrating the Divine Feminine  -  Day Nine

This small wall quilt, which I made quite a long time ago, has volunteered to be presented today!

The title is" Fire Bird"   -   constructed in assorted fabrics, by machine applique.

The silver candlesticks were my grandmother's, the green velvet fabric around the bird was left over from a party dress I made for my mother and the paper angel and pink butterfly candles are gifts from my granddaughter.

The altar cloth was once part of a camel's saddle bag and the silver chain is a set of Guatemalan wedding beads.

The past is surfacing again,
claiming it's rightful place,
as if assured that it is beauty only,
that can endure through time.
