from Rebekah's workroom

a blog about creativity, design, and wool appliqué

For Posterity: Rebekah's Tags

Today's musing is not long, but is perhaps of lasting value. Step into the workroom as we think about the life of our creative works after us. Once I finish a piece, I almost always forget to label it. I suppose I am just in a hurry to move on to the next project, but I really should take the time to add some important information—for posterity. As someone with a life-long interest in history, I know the value of provenance. The story of the origins, ownership, and travel of a work of art only adds to its value and significance. At the request of some of you, we recently designed labels and had them printed on fabric to be stitched, fused, or glued to the back of your own Rebekah L. Smith wo

Happy Statehood Day

Here we are at March 2 which is Ohio’s day to commemorate its statehood. Established in 1803, the state of Ohio has become my adopted home for these past 25 years. We live in what is called the Western Reserve which, in short, means that this land was offered to those who lost farms in the Revolutionary War, and came west to settle new country. We are blessed to have historic towns scattered throughout this part of the state with early architecture. This area is also home to wonderful rolling hills and deep river gorges which allows for great hiking and beautiful scenery. As many of you know, my husband and I own a historic house built in 1838 which we are continually working to preserve. It
