This series shares often hidden experiences of motherhood through two fragile cot sized quilts and a series of embroidered vintage baby garments & shoes.

The words and handwriting were gathered as mothers told their personal stories of postnatal depression. The words are simply stitched. The quilts are imperfectly patched together – in the words of one mother “barely holding it together”.

It seems appropriate that each small paragraph takes hours of stitching – giving the words the attention and thought that they deserve.
