When I red the theme for this quilt I wondered how to interpret it. Thinking of reading the newspaper every day with all the catastrophes around the world, happening all the time, I thought of the four elements and what they causes such as fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, floods etc. Trying to dive a little bit deeper into this I started, as usual, to search for my glasses and there I had my idea for the quilt, not such a serious subject field though. I do not know how much time I spend every day searching for my glasses, but it is a lot. Reading glasses, sun glasses and progressive glasses!! I made a collage with letters as I at the beginning had thought of newspaper. In my possession I also had an antique prosthetic eye (made 1890-1940), which fitted so well into the theme.
