Wonderful a great artist

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Dyslexia a gift ?

Why is dyslexia a gift?
Dyslexic people are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. We are intuitive and highly creative, and excel at hands-on learning. Because we think in pictures, it is sometimes hard for us to understand letters, numbers, symbols, and written words.

I just found this and it makes me happy to read it ,I have Dyslexia ,

What if ,,,,,

The world is in disorder
Also my mind
so something simple
to restore the peace
only working with the embellisher and just making stitches for the fun of it

dinsdag, oktober 07, 2008


As always the day after I got so much inspiration, I found a little space to get this going.
Green and red , a lot of hand embroidery and now I added free motion embroidery .
Tomorrow I have some time to go on with this project.
Maybe I can let you see more, I have to finish the TAST book it is almost done but this is what I wanted to do first,
The inspiration is here and got to use it before it is gone .
