Her mode of self-expression

She used a needle as often, and as easily as a telephone; it was her duty, her comfort, her companion, her mode of self-expression.

And when she undertook a project of great magnitude, she was not just passing time or doing a bit of show-off needlework, she was making a statement about herself; about her skill, her patience, her ability to endure endless days of hard work and tedium for the sake of the pattern of the whole, and ultimately of her sense of her own value as a human being.

I enjoyed discovering this inspiration and quote at
Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville today
