Sometimes She Was Happy,

artwork by Judy Tobie

Artist book, partially open. Thermofax printed on antique kimono fabric. Handmade paper, thread and knitting needles. 

Needleworked text about my mother says,"Sometimes she was happy.........she loved her jewelry, some of her grandchildren and sewing tiny stitches. Her house was spotless, the birdfeeder always full but bitterness had worried away the corners of her soul".
