"The quilted pieces of our lives all have frayed edges and spots where the cares of our world have chewed away at our most pristine designs. This book celebrates the fact that we still have value." cynth'ya lewis reed

Cynthia's newest is must read for everyone. She paints positive pictures that everyone can see and understand. A very learned person with a gift of writing in ways that everyone can enjoy. Thanks Cynthia, looking forward to more. Steve Guinn 1/16/03
I truly enjoyed reading Cynthya's book of poetic expressions. She has great insight into the ways of the world and a unique way of expressing it. Cynthya also has the vision to achieve bigger and better things in life. She has assembled a written quilt of experiences, feelings, and observations told in poems---which reflect what many of us have lived. I knew her because I used to write a column in the same newspaper that she did in Muncie, IN. She has a gift and she deserves our support. Treat yourself to a copy of this book. You will enjoy it very much. Dr. Melvia Miller, Ph.D. & AuthorsDen Member 12/27/2002

Excerpt"WE are more than a national "melting pot." We are all individually "color'd." Not by skin or hair shade, but by experiences that create a magnificant palette of the concept of our personal freedoms & divinely revealed truths."
Each volume is hand-made, high quality, and individually designed using various textured fabrics & parts of artificial silk plants. A quick and easy read for someone who has NO TIME and CRAVES TIME to connect inside deep and simplistic truths.
Pieces, and Other Color'd Quiltations, the Abbeville Editions also contains stunning full-color glossy photos from inside REID PLACE, the slave plantation home of Cynth'ya's childrens' ancestors in Abbeville, SC.
