This piece started after Fiona got sick, I had been doing the patterns for sometime and felt it was time to complete something larger. It waits and waits to be finished. There had been an urgency to start it, but my priorities remain with Fiona. I have had a very hard time finishing it. She has been in and out of wheel chairs. She remains very sick. I am thankful she is here. I am thankful she is mending. In some ways, she is like the great blue heron, waiting to fly.
