To Keep Him Close

This is just beautiful. Really made me teary eyed.

Shirt jpg quiltMar 2014 The story of a woman who made her husband’s shirts into a quilt when he died so that she might keep him close to her, touched my heart and seemed like a perfect idea for an art quilt.  So here it is:  Machine pieced and quilted, 35″ X 30″, machine and hand appliqued and embroidered.

My Favorite Poem for My Special Somebody.. E.E.Cummings

‘i carry your heart’ by E.E. Cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
