Meet Maker Corinne Micropoulos

corinnemicropoulosblock1Today I’d like to introduce you to Corinne Micropoulos, her beautiful blocks, and her beautiful words . . .

Voici mes deux premieres croix. (These are my first two crosses.)


J’ai brodé avec des perles pour montrer le contraste entre ces personnes riches dans leur tête et le tissu épais et rêche qui représente l’endroit triste où ces pauvres gens étaient enfermés avant d’être exécutés (le tissu me vient de ma grand-mère et date d’avant la dernière guerre, je le conservais précieusement en souvenir d’elle, je suis sûre que là où elle se trouve elle est contente de participer par mon intermédiaire)

I embroidered with pearls to show the contrast between these rich people in their head and the fabric thick and rough to represent the sad place where these poor people were locked up before being executed (the fabric I got from my grandmother before the last war. I was saving the preciously in remembrance of her. I’m sure there where she is she’s happy to participate through me).


Thank you, Corinne, for the beauty and meaning you add to The 70273 Project.  I am deeply touched by your blocks and grateful for your participation. I’m sure your grandmother is proud of you and delighted to work through you..

There is such enthusiasm for and commitment to The 70273 Project in France and Belgium and the rest of Europe – y’all just wouldn’t believe. I am so deeply, hugely grateful for everything the good people are doing there, for the layers of meaning and creativity being added.

I’m learning French, you know, so I can express my gratitude next June when I travel to France for The 70273 Project Exhibit in Lacaze. In 4 weeks, I’m 4% fluent. (I missed several days of class and haven’t caught up yet.)

    Bonjour, Corinne. Je suis très heureuse de faire votre connaissance. J’aime bien vos croix et le fait que vous avez utilisé le tissu de votre grand-mère. Vos belles idées sont très créatives et je suis certaine qu’elles soient une inspiration pour nous tous. 🙂

      Beautifully said, Nancy. I agree with every word . . . and look forward to the day when I can speak French this well!
