Aguja: la marca de tiempo
For each photograph there is a corresponding needlepoint that is being created.  The idea is that as the series grows, so do the needlepoint panels that will ultimately form a quilt.  The needlepoint idea is inspired by my great-grandmother.  When my grandmother passed away my mom started to take care of her grandmother my great-grandmother.  Every morning she would wake up and needlepoint.  It was the one thing that made her very happy and is something that I will always remember.  In honor of an amazing woman, I have decided to incorporate this element into the series.  In a way, I also feel close to my great-grandmother as I create the quilt.
