Tonight we were at the Vision Gallery for one of our Dia de los Muertos exhibits. One of the other installations was this stunning collection of embroidered hankies by Mexican women. We’ve all seen these lovely embellished cloths at thrift stores, in our Nana’s houses, or maybe strangers at the doctor’s office or grocery store holding and using them. This message was about the lives of the women who made these pieces of art that are often taken for granted.

I’ve always loved embroidering and even more so now. This project is moving to the top of my list, I want to make own towel and then send it out into the world…

Love & light,
