Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric, Steam and Sew, heat-adhering stones.

Artist's Statement: My mother succumbed to Alzheimer’s and spent the last 15 years of her life in a nursing home. My personal belief is that the loss of her first two children, both boys, shrouded her life in grief that was only made bearable by her religious beliefs and the eventual births of her 4 daughters.

Dedication: In memory of my mother Helen Elizabeth Blauvelt Fisher (1901-1991). The grief that choked off her words could not silence the love her hands expressed.
