My stitching:



“For many years I have made paper and loved doing so. I enjoy the connection to its history, the knowing that for thousands of years something has been made so simply and yet has such an amazing impact on our world. Yet often I deny the medium, focusing only on the “art”, the “message”. As I began to make the paper for this exhibit, I became very aware of the process. The mediation and rhythm and the absolute beauty of the paper itself became of primary importance” – Lori Goodman

(This quote – that talks about making paper, but for me, easily transfers over to my stitchings on cloth – found on this beautiful, inspiring blog.)

and I am Jeanne, the woman who flat-out loves her.
