3-D fabric: Small scale, big thoughts

I've been photographing small works that will be on exhibit
 at the Andover Memorial Hall Library this March.
This piece, "Juggling," was made  a decade ago, 
for the exhibit "We Wear Many Hats," at the Lowell Memorial Library.
 I still love it.
The photos are from family albums. 
Myself, my sister, memories of times long gone: still big themes for my art.
Me, fearless in red overalls, 1957

Why does it suprise me that themes and techniques persist over the years?
My sister takes me riding, 1957

The love of bits of lace, text and hand-stitching, even  the painting on top of printed images:
 it's all here, in embryo.

We change, but some how at the core we remain the same.
