In describing her exquisite Hearts and Hands for Sendai quilt block (shown here), Susan Elliott says,
I believe that embroidery is a spiritual exercise. I believe that great love and energy has been generated by every person who picked up a needle and made a block for one of these quilts. I believe in the power of your energy as you read this blog post and bear witness to its message. I believe that all that power…the power of all those communal stitches and thoughts…has, indeed, already helped someone in some way. I never underestimate the power of human connection…the power of us. And the power of our hearts and hands to help Japan.
To this prayer, I must say Amen. See more photos and learn the story behind this block at Susan’s blog post.
