  1. Wow! You still have the old purse I made?!?! I love that!

    Your embroidery is Fantastic!. I can’t wait to see it finished. A labor of love and obsession…

    1. How could I NOT have the velvet bag????????

      As for the jacket, it will be a present for my daughter 🙂
      Doesn’t it also remind you of our high school mural in the girls’ lounge?!

    1. You nailed it, Rebecca! I see art all around me in my every day life, whether it is a simple flower in a vase, a cloud in the sky, or a painting in a exhibition.
