Life-Rafts Connie Pickering StoverMy husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease in 2011 and I was devoted to his care until his death in February of this year. These pieces were my life raftsduring his long illness, and they rescued me when I occasionally felt that I had fallen overboard.

Each work of art took a bit over a month to create and most of them incorporated my hand painted threads. There are over 24,000 ‘in’s and outs’ stitches in each piece!

Many wonderful thanks go to my father, Jim Burchill, who so lovingly built the custom frames for this series. My work couldn’t shine brighter.
