I was thrilled to receive the new issue of “Somerset Memories” over the weekend. It has been a very long time since I submitted anything to the magazines, and last summer two of my fabric collages were accepted for print.
The article is on pages 85 – 87 of this issue:
This fabric collage features my Grandparent’s (maternal) Orla Ford and Jessie Simms (later Ford) when they attended a one room school house in Redford, Michigan. My Great-Uncle William Simms and Great-Aunt Florence Simms are also among the class.
This collage is one of my favorite photos from my cabinet card collection. She is not a relative…just love her sweet face. Her name is Cora Zell and she was from Michigan. I found her at the local Antique’s Mall a few years back and wanted to make a piece using her.
I also have a fabric cone that was featured on page 73:
Thank you Somerset! :)
