This piece is my response to the Creative Therapy catalyst, "What Was Your Childhood Like?" The public library in town was my favorite place where I spent many many hours. That grand building held so many possibilities...I remember when I was finally old enough to peruse the 'adult' section. I wanted the structure of the building to look childlike, with the colors of those wonderful stained glass windows. The books are selvage edges of fabric. The little embroidered flower is a bit of my mom's hand work. I machine quilted, and hand stitched the bird's tail in gold thread.
