Quilt of Belonging

Yesterday my sisters and I went to see the Quilt of Belonging at the Surrey Art Gallery. What a magnificent work of art! It was spectacular! It is a quilt made up of 263 squares representing 192 immigrant nationalities and 71 aboriginal groups found in Canada. It is 36 metres long and 3.5 metres high. The squares are just so beautifully crafted, each one a work of art in and of themselves. Some of them have 3-dimensional objects on them, such as the Dutch square with its tiny little silver wooden shoes. If you get a chance to see it, go for it. It is truly worthwhile! You can look it up online as well, I think.
It's so good to have my sister here and to do some things together. Today we ran some errands in town and went for a walk around Mill Lake, even though it was a bit blustery and cool.

Take care,
Love, Sandra
