The process of healing and trying to deal with my sister’s death continues her journey. My husband had a beautiful card for me when I returned home. “If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies.” Jean always referred to her experience as a journey or a process. Butterflies provide such a beautiful comparison for this part of our journey.
“What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly.”
― Lao Tzu
About three years ago I finished a quilt with butterflies.
I used several of the specialty embroidery stitches on my sewing machine to enhance the butterflies.
I’m thinking today about my sister and how she could leave her cocoon /pain behind and achieve the freedom from pain for which she longed.
Machine appliqué, hand quilting, batiks, sulky nylon thread to enhance the designs
