First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Martin Niemoller (1892-1984)

My apologies for not writing more often these days, but like most of us, I’m a mess- waiting, watching, writing, signing, marching. I was excited to learn about this quilting exhibit: Threads of Resistance- an opportunity to take out my frustrations with a needle and thread. I used a quilt I made in 1991 as part of The Great American Quilt Festival sponsored by the Museum of American Folk Art: Stars of America. Instead of 50 stars, I used 50 pussy hats with embroidery. It was great fun and very satisfying.
