Excerpt from Billie 2017, Volume 2/Issue 2

I came across this and found it so cool as I love Nancy Edell's work..so to be mentioned in the same paragraph is ..well, it lifts my spirits.

The Hooked Rugs of Alexandrya Eaton
Family Ties

Atlantic rug hooking artists Nancy Edell and Laura Kenney both explore the dreams, experiences and humour of women working in rug hooking. Throughout the 1990s, Nancy Edell created a series called Art Nuns, and Kenney's work currently features a character named Judy. I saw their work at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia after my first visit with Eaton and reflected on their shared decision to use this most traditional of media to portray modern women and communicate a feminist message.

Kids are back in school

Always a weird day..when the kids first go back to school.
The house is so quiet.
A bit unsettling....but also a sense of relief...I am free..to hook.

Kids in the Gallery

I am the type of person who should not watch the news...too sensitive.
But I do.
And I have been seeing images of kids in cages, separated from their parents in the USA... and boys trapped in a cave in Thailand...not knowing if they are going to survive.
It's heartbreaking.
So when I saw this image of kids in the gallery taking in Whose Maud?..I just thought yes, this is where kids belong..safe, in a gallery, thinking, making art and then home to their parents at the end of the day..this make sense..this is good.
