Textile artist Mandy Pattullo was moved to create Remember Me: A Textile to the Maiden's Garlands after seeing the Maiden's Crowns of St. Stephens.
I find the idea of a Maiden's Garland as a way of remembering someone very endearing. Today, death seems too rushed for me. We quickly plan an often generic funeral and then try to get over the deceased. I like the idea of sitting quietly and creating something by which to remember them. Instead of getting over a death, I'd like to get comfortable with a death. Maybe that's just me.
