I took a course with Pamela Allen at Asilomar, and made a self portrait (the one I use as my picture on this blog) I decided I wanted to do a series, featuring my mother and grandmother. The first one I finished is entitled Mimi, about my mother Constance Eagan Mason, called by her grandchildren Mimi. Mimi had white hair, and very blue eyes. She sewed a lot for my and my sister, as well as herself. I made her a charm bracelet of sewing patterns. She is holding a purse that she made to go with one of her outfits sewed for a cruise. She also holds one of her curlers--I have a whole boxful. Her earrings were made by my Dad when he was recovering from surgery. The locket contains his college graduation picture. I put a seascape on the quilt because they retired to Florida. It has some tiny shells that I picked up on the beach.
