Hands of Gold

Mãos de ouro..... translates to hands of gold.  The spinning of
treasures from our hands.  This is how my mother would recognize
the talent of another woman. 

This quilt top was entirely sewn by hand by my sister, Mericia, over 20 years ago.
This precious connection to the past is entrusted to my care now. 
Running my hand over her meticulous stitches,
I can feel her working through her own worries, regrets and concerns.

It is all there in the thought placed on each patch.  Joy and sorrow.
