“Thankful Generations” WWII Project - Part 4


Honor. Sacrifice. Commitment. 

Since May of 2013, my hands, mind and heart have been engaged in a labor of love creating a beaded tapestry dedicated to my Uncle Arthur*.  This tapestry is the second in my “Thankful Generations” WWII series, and requires only the finishing frame to be complete. 

I am humbled by this process and by what this project represents, and am eager to begin work on Tapestry #3. The year 2015 will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII, and by then I hope to complete at least six more pieces to include in a traveling exhibit. 

As we round out another year and look forward to 2014, I am thankful for the freedoms I enjoy, and the life that I am privileged to share with my family and friends. We all stand upon the shoulders of the giants of our collective past, and I will continue to honor our heroes in my own unique way.  Happy New Year everyone.
