Width: 8.5"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Family photos printed on fabric, hand beaded, DMC embroidery floss/hand quilting.

Artist's Statement: Her name was Lura. The middle child, she survived her older brother and younger sister. Lura was the first woman to work in the cost accounting department before becoming a full-time mother, homemaker, and to her great joy, a grandmother to five grandsons. As we watched the woman we loved slowly disappear beneath the relentless progression of Alzheimer's, we felt powerless. Now, I stitch for AAQI and remember.
Julie Sefton

Dedication: In honor and memory of my mother, Lura Irene Ash Walton (1916-2005).
