A month ago, I was in Maine, taking care of my parents' house for a week while they tended to some family business in Florida. I kept the fires going and took care of some house projects that needed doing. It was the first whole week I'd had to myself in what seemed like a year, and although I was working as usual during the days, I did manage to take over their kitchen in a complete and thorough way while they were gone—I turned it into a quilting studio. A quilting and whiskey-tasting studio! During that week, I quilted the fifth in what is sure to be a long series of my mother's stunning photographs. This one is called "Floating"; you can view the original image on her Broot Photo website (it's the first photo in the second row). Here's the final fabric-printed image once I quilted it (please excuse the tape which was securing it to the wall when I took this photograph).
