I've recently finished these two feathers for Jude's Magic Feather Project.
They are done in the ragged applique technique.
Jude has invited everyone to join in by creating their own unique feather.
These two feathers are to honor my mother, a true 'book person'.
They are to honor the way she raised my sister and me
to be book people too.
And how she helped instill a love of books in her grandchildren too.
My mother was a Junior High English Teacher for 20 years and
a children's bookseller for another 20 years.
She was books, catalogs and the daily newspaper.
She was song lyrics written by others, rewritten by her.
She was hand written letters and plenty of emails.
She was a curious learner and a superb teacher.
She was language and intelligence and humor.
She was so much more, so much more.
