This beautiful, spring fed river near Camp Sherman, appears out of nowhere and turns into a stunning example of Nature’s Water Works.

During a hike at Camp Sherman, we came upon a bridge overlooking the Metolius River. I was struck by the rich blues of the water and the churning foam over the rocks.

As we age we can’t help but notice how we start to become invisible, our hair starts to gray, our skin loses its vibrancy and we can feel like society has lost interest in us. It’s easy to feel as if we’re disappearing—we want to shout “Hey I’m still here, I still matter, don’t forget or dismiss me.
This quilt expresses the frustration of both the process of aging and the effects of age related conditions.
There is so much expression in the eye, what thoughts lie behind that gaze? He’s watching. What does this white tiger watch for? Is he aware that both his species and his habitat are endangered? We should be as watchful.
An improvisational quilt using strip piecing.
Creating this quilt was a wonderful free-flowing experience.
