Letters Home, Art Quilt Series

In these times of staying home….we have embarked on two related projects that have long been on our “to do” lists- to transcribe the letters our parents (mostly our mother) wrote from foreign lands, and to work in a series. So, the letters are in progress and we are happy to share our childhood adventures with you as we go. The series is drawn from the images, experiences, and emotions evoked by those writings. We hope you enjoy Letters Home!

A Night to Remember
April 8, 1959

Dining, dancing, and a dangerous boat ride- All in an evening out!


Letters Home is a collection of letters written by our Mother (mostly) and our Father ( sometimes), that chronicles their life overseas, with two, then three, then four young girls.  The letters were written to their mothers and are full of daily life, unique challenges, and humor. As we live in uncertain and challenging times, it seems fitting to share.
