Peace Be Upon Us All- mixed media quilt-

In my last post I shared with you some of the pieces I did inspired by the phrase “peace be with you”. As the week went on that became something of a mantra. I kept cutting and stitching and reflecting the idea in different ways, until a series emerged. Some time while I was working the Sheryl Crow song, “Peace Be Upon Us” kept tunneling through my brain not so much an ear worm as is sometimes the case when songs won’t leave you alone, no this song wove itself into my Peace series lifting and lilting like a hawk on an up draft. I found myself humming at my sewing machine making my efforts into something of a meditation on peace as well as a creative endeavor. I want you to get a sense of my mental space so click this link to get this lovely addiction wandering in your brain too! PEACE BE UPON US ALL – Sheryl Crow listen to the whole song I think you might me humming this through your week – and if your going to have a song stuck in your head well, I think one about peace is a good way to go.

    I have enjoyed your blog for years but, without warning, stopped receiving your blog emails. I have tried several times to re-subscribe with no success. Would like to be on your email subscription list again. I have clicked Contact several times and receive the message to check he address entered – and I did – It is correct. So….what to do next?

    Your Peace Be With You work is lovely!

  3. I know you have been wonderful in your responses and comments- I don’t find you on my list either – I going to try to forward this question to a help line with the WordPress folks not sure what to say except perhaps your spam is grabbing it. Try to resignup one more time then check your junk mail folder because to be fully subscribed you have to reply to a confirmation email that is sent soon after you input your info- try that and keep me posted.
