--Here is the wallhanging quilt I made for the victims of violent crime, specifically sexual assault and domestic violence.
--I have been a forensic nurse, subspecialty of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, for the last 10 years of my 40 year nursing career.
--Upon my retirement, I presented this as a gift to our county SART team (sexual assault response team)and UASA (united against sexual assault), our local rape crises counseling center.
--the color for "ribbons" against this awful crime is purple (like pink for breast cancer, red for heart disease)
--The big rectangle in center is a photo of a broken dish and a whole dish
--You can read about my symbolism on the label I was asked to make to be on display next to the wallhanging (identical one is sewn on backing).
--I got the idea to make a wallhanging from a patient one day. Lying in the white, sterile exam room, she said something pretty to look at during the procedure was needed. I took care of that!
