Nancy’s original drawing:


and my re-creation in stitch:


I ordered a large ledger book. 300 pages, 11 x 14 in size. I thought I could use it as a sort of linen press, putting one cloth between each page to keep them flat and clean. The ledger book came today, and while it’s beautiful (I’ve never yet met a blank book I don’t love), my idea isn’t going to work, so back it goes. Oh well. I ‘spect two thick pieces of cardboard and about a yard of colorful ribbon will do just as nicely.

There are 5 separate pen strokes in this drawing.


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