the original drawing:


the recreation in stitch:


I thought you might like to see the original drawing and the cloth version. Maybe I’ll go back and add the original drawings to the previous posts and include it from here on out. Nancy flew through the 14 pages left in my small, pocketbook-size journal. I happened to have this promotional notepad in my pocketbook, and she quickly filled it up, too. The womanchild was on fire, I tell you. I couldn’t keep blank pages in front of her. This is the only two-color drawing she did, and I opted to stitch it only in purple because I want the focus to be on the message she’s conveying, the story she’s telling, the conversation she is having.


She draws, I stitch.
She is my developmentally disabled sister-in-law, Nancy,
and I am Jeanne, the woman who flat-out loves her.
